School Fees for AIDS Orphans

Still Studying and Enjoying School

The kiddos that were given the gift of attending school are doing well.  It is always incredible to me how they keep getting good grades, despite not living in good conditions an lacking basic necessities like electricity.  Yet, these children are resilient and they want to get an education, so they light their candles and they study.  They study hard!

This, of course, happens after doing going to school, after chores, after caring for little ones and for elderly guardians, after cooking, and after cleaning up. 

The kids are all an inspiration and I am proud to know that our little program of school fees is still working.  We have many children in the Mombasa project that need fees in order to attend school and we'd welcome new donors.  Education is so basic for children! 

Thank you so much for your continued support and for your care of these little ones.  It will be excited to follow them as they move through the different grades and finally, reach graduation.  I trust you'll be part of their lives the entire way so you can celebrate with them when they reach that milestone.

In gratitude,

Tanya Weaver, for the kids
