Hear how the plea from Headmaster Amon has become a reality thanks to all the hard work and efforts of Charles Coldman and African Promise, the Charity that he has built from the ground up, and how at Kids4Kenya we are helping to make that happen.

The response to our outreach for support for the school at Kisimenyi has been overwhelming and we are very grateful for all your support.

 

Of course, there are countless more projects to contemplate, but with your continued help, African Promise and Kids4Kenya will be able to continue to make a real diference in the lives of so many.

 

Thank you!
