Housing, educating, and nurturing every single homeless and orphaned child in Kenya is impossible. Therefore, we must radically rethink the approach we are going to take. Do we provide orphaned children with merely adequate care - enough food to survive, limited education, rows of bunks beds and bowls of rice? Can we expect children raised in these conditions to be in a position to take on the challenges facing their country, to compete on a world stage?
Your gift will help lay the groundwork for the exemplary care provided for orphaned children at Flying Kites Kinangop Children's Center. This encompasses general childcare needs (such as clothes and shoes for the children) as well as our basic operating costs on the ground in Kenya. All of our international staff members are working on a voluntary basis and none of the directors receive a salary or expenses. The funding in this section will be used to pay the Kenyan Aunties' salaries, and to purchase necessary farm supplies (livestock, seeds, fertilizer).
