We're blown away by your support and generosity.

Margaret and just a few of her very proud family
Margaret and just a few of her very proud family

 

Meet Margaret, along with just a few of her very proud family members on Margaret's graduation day earlier this month.

Margaret comes from a family of twelve, four brothers and seven sisters. She is the last born in the family. Her father is a casual laborer and was not able to take her to college after her form four. Margaret was born as a normal child, able to hear and talk. She went to her nursery class as a normal child. When she was in class two, she developed recurring headaches. She was hospitalized for three months, during this time the worst happened and she lost her hearing ability completly. Her parents could not believe what had happened to their daughter, but afterwards enrolled her into Ngala school for the deaf. During her last year of high school, she lost her mother, who had been struggling with poor health for several years. This left Margaret devastated. She says life has never been the same since losing her mother, until she came to Springs of Hope Foundation's Kijiji Mission project and now sees a bright future ahead

There is indeed a bright future ahead for Margaret, along with the other young women who recently graduated from our 12-month course earlier this month. They have all been offered jobs at a local company. That’s right…ALL of the young women, including our hearing-impaired students.

It can be very difficult for the deaf to find employment in Kenya, or anywhere else in the underdeveloped world for that matter, so we are thrilled to know that they will all go on to paid employment when they return from a very well earned Christmas break in January. 

We are so very grateful for your continued support in 2019. As we look forward to a new intake of young women in the new year our wish is that you continue to include Springs of Hope Foundation in your charitable giving.

Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas and a New Year filled with Many Blessings.

This is our most enjoyable & rewarding project

Last Monday we completed what has become my favorite program. We were able to deliver free school uniforms to 26 kindergarten children at a school in an area called Slum Hill, which is a very poor area of Nakuru. Last week's delivery makes a total of 70 children that we have been able to assist with free school uniforms. 

Unless you were here, It's hard to imagine what a huge impact this project has on both our students and the little ones they are assisting, who come from one of the most deplorable slums in our area and are forced to come to school in worn out, hand me down uniforms and shoes. Last weeks delivery makes a total of 70 children from desterapetly poor areas that we have been able to assist with free school uniforms this year.

As a supporter of Springs of Hope Foundation, we need your help this Giving Tuesday, December 3rd. Please create a fundraiser on our Global Giving project page and share it with your email, Facebook and social network friends. Creating a fundraiser is easy and we welcome with any goal amount. 

Over this 24-hour period, Global Giving will be giving out $500.000 in proportional matching funds and $42,000 in bonus prizes. The project with the most unique (new) donors will win the largest portion of the bonus prizes!

Please hepl us win a large amount of the bonus prize money by starting a fundraiser amoung your friends and social media contacts here.
