Learning To Sew and School Fees

$3,025 of $3,800 goal

Raised by 3 people in 3 months
Hoping to begin teaching the children how to sew. We have a professional teacher who has evaluated the children and determined that nine are capable of learning the trade. His fee is 200 Kenya Schillings (that's approximately $2). per child, per lesson. He will give five lessons per week. That totals 36,000 Kenya Schillings ($360) per Month for all nine children. That's $40 per child per Month. the course will run five Months, totaling: $1,800. for all nine children. Yes, total cost per student for five Month course is only $200.  yes, for a total of $200 a  student will be well trained and quite capable of repairing clothes and making new ones.

There is a sewing school in the nearby village of Ogembo, but the cost to enroll in that school would be in the thousands of dollars per student for the course. Plus they will not accept students under the age of 18. Our goal is to have our chikdren trained in various specific skills by the time they reach 18, so they can become self supportive.

if you can possibly help these precious orphans, it would be much appreciated. You can meet these children and observe their lifestyle by visiting our YouTube channel  at:   www.youtube.com/user/daddytucker/videos

Greetings everyone, just wanted to let you know that 100% of the school fees have been paid and all the children are doing well in the third and final term. As for the sewing project, both machines are up and running and instructions have begun. We do hope to reach our fund raiser goal in order for all 18 children to have opportunity to learn this trade. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the help you have been giving these precious orphans.

Greetings, we have not been able to start the sewing project yet, but hoping that others who can afford it, will donate to this worthy cause. Also, School starts up again in two weeks. Currently we don't even have the funds to pay the school fees either. Now I'm not asking those who normally donate to donate more, but am reaching out and hoping that others will learn about the needs of the church orphans that are living here and will help them. These eighteen orphans are precious. They came to us from various COG groups who could not assist them after their parents died. When we took them in, they were skin and bone skeletons, lacking food, clothing, and none were in school do to lack of school fees. Thanks to those few who have been assisting, all the children are now well fed, clothed, and all have been in school. But as I mentioned, currently we don't have the funds for them to return to school when it reopens on August 27th. If you can possible help, it would be highly appreciated. And if you can tell others about the situation here, that would be great. We have tried numerous times to spread the word about our impoverished E. African church widows and orphans here in Kenya , who desperately need our help. But most "leaders" of the larger cog organizations will not allow their members to be informed about the brethren here who are suffering. (How Sad) bill Goff
