Did you say, drought?<br>
Not just in California, but Kenya is experiencing radically reduced rainfall this year as well. Drought in the Kamonong community can be devastating for crops since most Kenyans in this area grow their own maize (corn), beans and vegetables.
When Elma Kamonong High School opened in 2015, the EBCCK Board of Directors was fortunate to be able to encourage Mr. Richard Keter, a former school administrator, to step away from his retirement and take on the task of opening our new high school.
25 students have continued education post-high school since 2012.
11 buildings constructed on EKHS campus since land was purchased in 2012.
3 primary: Lina, Terry & Joel.
5 secondary: Isaac, Henry, Daisy, Alfred & Ziadi.
$0 = salaries paid to Directors, who are all unpaid volunteers. 100% of sponsorship donations go to Kenya.
"In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish."
The Walindwa Difference
Many child sponsorship organizations exist, but Walindwa is unique.
The Walindwa Board members have traveled to Kenya, met with their counterparts on the Kenyan BOD, and seen the results of the projects that we support. We visit with the children and see their excitement when we deliver a letter from their sponsor.
THE RIGHT SIZE
The EBCCK home includes about 40 primary-aged children with another 8 of our kids in EKHS high school plus 13 post-high-school students. We know every child’s name, how they are doing in their studies, and their hopes for the future.
With our regular visits and close partnership, there are no fiscal surprises. If the lack of rain causes the price of grain to rise, we know about it. Funds are sent monthly, based on the number of children in residence. When projects are proposed by those in Kenya, we review the quotes before agreeing to raise the funds.
