THE STORY:

I have travelled to Kenya twice and am eagerly waiting for the day that I can return. My favorite part about my trips, is the children in the small village outside of Kisumu in South West Kenya. The children are always excited to play and laugh at me when they try to teach me Swahili or Luo words. Unfortunately, many of these bright, excited, hopeful children do not have food at home or school to go to during the day. The creator of the Kenya trips that I went on, Quint Clarke, began a child sponsorship program, the sponsorship has provided 80 Kenyan children with tuition, a school uniform, shoes, books and other school supplies, and a nutritious lunch every school day. Quint believes, and I agree, that education is a basic human right; help me support Gloria and Morrison through their education this year.

Meet Gloria and Morrison.

Gloria is 4 years old and is nursery school at the Blair Educational Center. Gloria's parents neither have any money nor do they have jobs. Her father struggles with addiction and thus the priorities at home are not positioned for Gloria's best interest. Gloria loves to draw and play.

Morrison is about 13 years old and is an orphan. On my first visit to Kenya, I met Morrison in the field behind the home in which we were staying. Morrison greeted me with a bug--a huge grasshopper that he was just holding out to me, laughing as he teased me and pretended to put the bug on me. After this first introduction, Morrison and I would play soccer in the field during the day and at night talk about the United States and what life has been like in Kenya for him.

This sponsorship support will support two "Kenyan children for their educational needs, including tuition, school uniform, shoes, books, and other school supplies, plus providing a nutritious lunch every day during the school year. Without our support, these students would not be able to attend school, which we feel is a basic human right. Further, we believe that it is not reasonable to expect a child to succeed in school without food, and we have therefore arranged so that the parents of the sponsored children volunteer on a rotating basis to cook, serve, and clean up for the children. Kenyan schools do not provide lunch and the students are sent home during this time, although for these children, there is no food at home either. We even allow these children to take some of the food with them so that they can feed their siblings." (blairinkenya.com)
