New Beginnings in Kenya
There are an estimated 1.9 million orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya as a result of HIV and AIDS, which remains the country’s single biggest health care challenge.
Children still face major challenges in Kenya, ranging from child labor, harmful traditional practices like forced early marriage and female genital mutilation, poor access to education and healthcare, and a lack of protection from many different types of abuse.
Please Give Our Journey a Helping Hand and take this CHALLENGE!
Across town from Nakuru, Kenya and out in the country a bit, are two schools run by local Kenya Pastor Pastors David Kinyanjui and his wife Anne Kinyanjui in Njoro--Sunshine Academies A & B. 100 children here, are also being given a chance to live by learning the basics in education--ABC's and 123's. Whether they have uniforms or not OR shoes on their feet or not, children are welcomed to come and learn at Sunshine. Most cannot pay the even minimal cost of 100 shillings per month (that equal to about $1) for their tuition. They are never turned away though. Many of these children are orphans living with elderly ladies in the local neighborhood. The meal they receive daily at school is the only food they eat most days (food is a major reason many children even become interested in education--they just want to eat!) It's our dream to help these children by offering them something better. Better resources, new uniforms for all (uniforms are standard and required in all of Kenya schools).
If you can't tell, Sunshine Academy is on our heart. We are wondering if any of our supporters would take a step of faith with Our Journey and sponsor one of these 100 children over the next year. One dollar a day. That's it. That's only $365. Most of us in the US waste that kind of money at fast food restaurants or on other things we don't really need. I promise you the money isn't wasted and ALL of it will go to support these children and their school. No donation is too small.
Our Journey, Inc. is a non-profit organization currently working in Kenya with community-based programs emphasizing self-reliance for families and children decimated by AIDS.
