CHILDREN IN THE FIELD
Welcome to the KCK family! Thank you so very much for choosing to change the life of a child in Kenya! This may seem impossible for just $35.00 per month but truly this is life-changing for the child as well and the family/guardian.
Your child will now be able to attend school because school fees are paid. Uniforms, shoes and school supplies will be provided. Improved nutrition will benefit the entire household through a monthly delivery of staples such as flour, sugar and cooking oil. Medical care can be provided. The future looks so much brighter for your child.
KCK teams in Kenya and the US continually strive to make this a positive experience for you as well. Our US team’s challenges are fundraising and communications. However ,the really hard work is done on the ground in Kenya including monthly meetings with sponsored kids/guardians to monitor school progress, deliver food supplements and often visit one or two of the homes in that area. Detailed records are kept on each child in the program.
Rev. Humphrey Kanga, the founder and CEO of KCK believes the key to escaping poverty is through education. From the time a child enters this program, the goal is for that child to successfully exit the program and be able to stand on their own two feet. The educational goals for a child are three-fold: graduate from Primary School (8th grade); graduate from high school (12th grade) and complete a professional certificate (skill) from a technical school and/or attend college. The journey may be challenging but it is achievable for many of the children.
The cost of an individual sponsorship to support a Kenyan child in poverty is $35 a month. That donation covers the cost of a monthly supply of food staples for the family, as well as school levies, uniforms, shoes, school supplies, medical care, and the services of a social worker. However, committing to this regular donation may not be something you wish to do, but you’d still like to help. You can do this by becoming a Partner in the sponsorship of a child. All you need to do is send a one-time payment of $35 and we will combine your gift with donations from other partners so that a child can be sponsored. In that way, you will know that you have made a difference in the health and education of a child in need.
