More $$$ to Kenyan Teens

Due to your help, another teen is going to school this spring.  Tuition for hign school in Kenya amounts to about $1000 US per semester.  The children at the Good Samaritan Children's Home have an excellent record in passing their examinations to allow them into high school at the end of eighth grade.  But with close to 50 teen in school, the orphanage must raise about $100,000 per year for tuition for that to happen. The children go to several different schools including highly ranked boarding schools, many of which are supported by a variety of churches.  Other children go to local high schools or trade schools. 

In a country where the average person makes $300 per year, this is a tremendous challenge to the orphanage's management. 

Thanks to you, we have been able to donate $7000 to the GSCH in the last few years.  This February another $1000 was sent to the home, so another child is no longer waiting.  Every year there are more children.  Our goal is to increase the amount sent so more teens can go to school, helping them and their community.
