Student In Need Of A Sponsor

Let me introduce Antonet.
Antonet is one of our students that are looking for a sponsor. She is 14 years old and is in class 7 at Galilee Primary school. The children attending Galilee Primary School range in age from 3 through their teens. Due to the fact that many of the children start school late and/or have their education interrupted, it is not uncommon to find older students in primary grades. Kenyan law requires a student start school in the early grades regardless of their age. Extreme poverty surrounds these children, but through sponsorship you can help them break that vicious cycle. Education will ensure the children grow up with improved health, development, and opportunities.

Antonet wrote to her future sponsor “I would like my sponsor to know that my father died when I was a young girl. I am a hard working girl in class; I would like you to know that I don’t have a full uniform and dictionary.” She also wrote that she likes to play tennis and her favorite color is pink. Sponsorship for Antonet is just $12.50 per month.

Good Things are Happening...........

Special Thanks to a wonderful Friend of Galilee!!

Stacks of new textbooks have been delivered to Galilee thanks to one of our wonderful supporters. In most classrooms of Galilee Primary & Waddington High School, textbooks are shared by as many as four or five students. This is not conducive to learning. We are always striving to bring the ratio of books to students up. This donation will certainly help in that regard. Thank you, Bob, for your continued support of our kids.

This month just keeps getting better.......
