You can make a difference in the life of a child

Kenya is a land of extreme poverty where finding something to eat is a priority. The children who live in the slums of Kenya have no means of attending school unless they are sponsored. Sponsorship is life-changing for a child and provides a chance for a future.

Sharon and Max

For Sharon and Max a whole new world has opened up because they are sponsored. Kara and Dave in Williamsville, N.Y. sponsor Max, and Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish also in Williamsville, N.Y. sponsor Sharon. Both children now attend school, are provided with uniforms, shoes and meals as well as medical and dental services.



Roger and Anne from John Newman Mission Community have sponsored Chris since 2010. He is in his high school senior year and plans to go into agricultural engineering.

How you can be a sponsor

Just $30 a month ($360 a year) will provide a child with a basic grade school education, meals, uniform, shoes and school supplies as well as any medical or dental care needed throughout the year. In addition, the child will receive some maize (corn) beans, and cooking fat to take home to the family to help them survive while they struggle to become self-reliant.

$40 a month ($480 a year) is enough to keep a child in high school for a year as well as medical and dental benefits. This sponsorship provides the child’s tuition, exam fees, food, books, school supplies, calculator, uniform, shoes, physical education uniform and food during school breaks.

When you sponsor a child, you will receive a photo of the child and information about the child’s family. You will receive periodic updates about your child. If the child is able to read and write in English, you may wish to correspond with him/her.

You can be the reason for changing a child’s life. Sponsor a child by printing the sponsorship form.
