You might have asked yourself this question if you’ve considered ordering (or have ordered) a doll or dishcloth.
Take a look at the top of my blog. These are the orphans that attend St. David’s Kinship Academy in Etago, Kenya. My Dad took this picture on his mission trip last year. These are the children you will be helping. This is where your money is going.
These children live in a small rural community set on the hillside in western Kenya, not far from Lake Victoria. They’ve never had an opportunity to see other towns or cities, and know little beyond their small area of sugar cane, corn, and tea harvesting. In December, the first class of 8th graders will graduate from St. David’s. One requirement of graduation is a field trip to a big city where they can learn more about what goes on outside their community.
Pastor Enosh is my dad’s main contact. This is what he wrote in an email asking for help:
“In total we have 68 students whom we had lined up for the trip…The students are intended to visit Kisumu, whereby they will view Lake Victoria and study about water transport, they will also visit fish industry. They are also supposed [to see] places like Museum, Railway Station and airport to mention just a few…It is important that the students have time to visit some of the sites that they usually study while in class so as to get exposure and practical side of there studies.”
Whatever money I raise will go directly to help fund this important trip. I appreciate all the ways you have supported and encouraged me as we work toward this goal together! Thank you!
