*Children Needing Sponsors

You Can Help!

While all of our children currently have sponsors,  your gift of $25. a month can still change their lives. In the past year, costs have tripled in Kenya, making it extremely expensive to buy food.  Assigning the children more than one sponsor will enable us to keep the program going. Click on a child's individual photo to indicate your desire to be a sponsor.
