Children from the Kenya Kids and JamQuest projects enjoyed an end year Christmas party to mark the end of a successful year 2017. During the joyous event that was held on 11th December 2017, children and their caregivers enjoyed playing games and sharing a special Christmas meal that was prepared for them. The caregivers also took part in a talk on effective communication between parents and children.

Over the last 8 years, JamQuest has sponsored children in Kenya with school fees, helping them to get an education, pursue their dreams and have hope for the future. The JamQuest team last year hosted an exciting art event at Radford University, Virginia dubbed 'heART to heART' to raise funds to educate more needy children in Kenya. Apart from raising much needed funds, the team also created and sent beautiful gifts, letters and cards for the sponsored children.

It was an absolute joy to receive these Christmas gifts!  In the year 2017, 5 candidates from JamQuest did their Kenya Certificate of Secondary School Education (KCSE) exam. Out of these, 4 scored a grade B, meeting the threshold for university admission. All this would not have been possible without the generosity, inspiration and love of the JamQuest sponsors!

      

                          Thank you JamQuest for your lovely gifts!                            

 

Kenya Kids is a project that has been impacting the lives of Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) and their families since 2007. In the year 2017, six candidates from the Kenya Kids project did their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams and managed to perform quite well with three of them scoring above 300 marks and three scoring above 250 marks out of 500. The graduates each received a certificate of achievement and an inspirational book to encourage them to keep pushing for a better future. Hewit Omondi was the best performing candidate scoring 373 marks out of 500 marks. He also received a certificate for being the best performing Kenya Kids candidate.

Mr. Baraza, one of the Kenya Kids caregivers had the following to say:

"We as caregivers are grateful for the support we have received from HOPE worldwide Kenya. The Kenya Kids project has supported our children with school fees, new school uniforms and new school shoes. They now stand out as some of the best dressed students in their schools. We also ran our table banking and savings group successfully this year. We now have KSh. 40,000 saved up and we are eager to learn more about effective business management in the coming year."  

Families in the Kenya Kids project remain grateful for the support of every sponsor who gives to the project. They are determined to ensure an even more fruitful year 2018. 

Your kind donations have continued to impact the lives of children and youth in the communities where we work in such an incredible way.  We would like to sincerely thank you for your continued support and we hope that you will continue to support the JamQuest and Kenya Kids Project in the year 2018.
