Thanks for keeping Kenson in school

On behalf of Kenson, "Thank You!" so much.
On behalf of Kenson, "Thank You!" so much.

Thanks so much for helping to provide a year* of school for Kenson.

Kenson's mum is alive but she’s homeless and living on the streets. She couldn't afford to feed Kenson, or keep him safe. So, she was forced to abandon Kenson at the HTDC orphanage.

But with so many other needs, like food, to worry about, the orphanage couldn’t provide Kenson with an education.

Without an education, Kenson’s future looked bleak. Kenson was heartbroken when his mum left him at the orphanage, but he’s started to giggle and laugh again. Yet without basic literacy and numeracy, he would almost certainly be doomed to a life of poverty.

But Kenson is lucky - he has you in his life.

Your fantastic generosity means that we’ll be able to keep Kenson in school and learning the skills he needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Kenson’s been doing really well in school, but if he needs extra help we’ll be there to get him the tutoring he needs.

We’ll be able to support Kenson because you chose to give. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Kenson. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Kenson and all his classmates through this project’s parent page, Provide a Safe Home for Haitian Orphans. If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again, and very kind regards!

*Donations to this project will cover Kenson’s school costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.
