Over the last 18 months we have looked at multiple pieces of land both in Molo and in the surrounding areas. While we have found several pieces of land that were suitable, our lawyer was unable to find the correct title deeds, meaning there was no proof that the land belonged to the person who was selling it to us. Other plots have, upon surveying, proved smaller than they appeared in the title deeds, deeming them too small to build a school on. The price of land in Molo and its surrounding areas has risen drastically in the last few years as the area is becoming more developed. It is an incredibly difficult climate in which to purchase land. Moving forward we have been reviewing the most productive use of the funds and assets raised in the past nine months of this particular Global Giving campaign and have decided to partner with our friends at East Africa Mission www.eamo.co.ke to equip their new library with computers and the furnishings needed to make the library a modern learning facility. East Africa Mission, an Australian run orphanage has been established in Nakuru since 1998. On their 50 acre property they currently care for and educate approximately 250 orphaned or abandoned children at their onsite school and orphanage.
I hope you are as excited by this I am! This Global Giving campaign is a great chance for the maximum number of children to receive the best possible education.
We still care for our children in Molo. Springs of Hope Foundation cannot continue to function without you're monthly sponsorship. Thank you for giving these children the opportunity to go to school and receive an education! Warmest regards Jennifer Hughes-Bystrom
