Moja Foundation is thrilled to support four children in secondary school! In Kenya, secondary (high school) is not free, and as a result, only about half of all Kenyan children ever attend secondary. The students were chosen from the local community based on ability and need. All of them have been orphaned or are living in extreme poverty. Through our end-of-the-year fundraising efforts we were able to have enough money raised for their first term and initial costs (uniform, books, etc). However, we do not have a source of ongoing funds to support the rest of the year. Their school fees run about $76 per term, which can be broken down to $20/month if you are interested in supporting one of the students. Or you can give any type of donation to go to their general education fund. You can donate online http://www.mojafoundation.com/about/ or contact Alison at mojafoundation@gmail.com to set up monthly donations. 

Jackline is 15. She is the second youngest of 10 children. She enjoys music and cooking.

Thank you for making Christmas special!

With your support we were able to provide shoes and food to 60 orphaned and destitute children.

 

Our sponsored kids were thrilled to get new outfits and a Christmas feast.

Children in Maryville, TN created treats and ornaments to raise money for their friends in Kenya to go to school. Joseph made a short video to show what life is like for the kids in Kenya, and the Maryville kids sent a greeting back. It was a fun experience for everyone!
