Form 1 intake and future plans

This month, a Kenyan Daily carried an editorial detailing why a majority of children graduating from primary schools fail to attend Kenya’s national and provincial high schools. Some of the reasons provided include lack of school fees and distance from the children’s homes to school. For the children sheltered at the Good Samaritan Children Home, Nairobi, the reasons could go beyond these. Because of their plight, these children are likely to miss high school due to lack of tuition fee, school uniform, textbooks, writing materials, and school shoes. However, due to the generosity of our donors who have continued to contribute funds that have helped them acquire these requirements, the majority of kids who graduated from primary schools have been able to join high schools that recruited them this year. This means, their dreams of acquiring quality education and realizing their career goals are within reach. We cannot thank you enough!

We look forward to continue raising funds for these children who remain optimistic about their future despite their painful past experiences. This summer, friends of Fabulous African Fabrics (FAF) Organization in Lansing, East Lansing, and Grand Rapids, Michigan will hold a rummage sale to raise funds for this worthy cause. We hope you can join us in this event once the details have been worked out and communicated.
