Sponsorship

We the parents of Janet kimeu we live in mathare slums with our children, some whom we are not able to cater for do not go to school due to lack of school fees, we thank God for a certain school by the name good green pastures which has greatly helped us in giving education and food to Janet. We are worried this school may end up collapsing due to the challenges that it is facing the problem of books, field and classrooms is a major issue there we therefore kindly request for someone to sponsor this school get books, field and classrooms so that it can continue its act of mercy to us.
