Provide an education for needy Kenyan children

     School in Kenya begins a new year January 3. The lines of parents at the uniform shops assure at least a ½ hour wait to get in the door.  The children unable to attend school are not seen. Parents and caregivers try to explain, “I am so sorry, we don’t have enough money to pay for your uniform, lunch fee, books and supplies. It has been hard to find work. I will keep trying. Maybe you can enter school late this year.”  It is impossible for the child to hide the disappointment.

      Expanding Opportunities has sent Cate, our Social Worker, to stand in the line to begin the purchase of uniforms with the funds we have received.  Help us try to keep her in that line every day through the first few weeks of school purchasing uniforms and shoes for children to attend school! We will update with the number of uniforms purchased in February!
