Beneficiary Monitoring and Support Visits

As the Pope arrives in Kenya for his first ever visit to Africa this evening, we welcome him and wish him a fruitful and blessed stay. We are on the final touches for our tri-annual Beneficiary Monitoring and Support Visit that begins on Monday 30th November and we pray for journey mercies for all our students and great sessions. During the sessions we get to motivate them through our PSS sessions, we also find out how the last term was, we analyze their performance from the last term and they fill in action plans on what and how to improve in the next term and they get to write thank you letters to their lovely sponsors. Thank you to our sponsors for your support throughout the 2015 Academic year. Please do sign up to sponsor a child in 2016 and let us change a child's life together.

kimaniIts with gratitude and a lot of appreciation that I take time to write this to all of you. It has been a while since I said what is going on with me.
