My name is Faith. I am thirteen years old. I am in class seven. I study at Kijana Global Innovation School.

I like being clean all the time. I am different from my classmates because I am the best in science. We have things in common because we all discuss in groups. My favorite subject is science because I learn different parts of the body. My favorite teacher is teacher Mallack because teaches me science and makes me happy. My favorite color is purple. When I see the color purple it makes me happy. I like the color purple because it always looks good.

My favorite animal is a cat. I have a cat at home called Jolly. He is a good cat. He is black and white. When I am at home I am always with Jolly. I like running, and athletics is my favorite sport. When I run, I am doing exercise and I make my body healthy and strong. When I ride a bike it is  fun. I feel good when I ride a bike. When I grow up I would like to be a lecturer and teach people different jobs.I would like to make friends with people in the United states. I will tell them about our country and will be happy to have new friends.

In our community, when someone has any problem he or she will be helped by his or her neighbors to solve their problem. People in my community live in peace. I am closest to my friends Macree and Carolyne. They usually help me when I have problems and I always help them. My family and friends see me as a humble child.

What You're Providing

If you’d like to learn more about Kenyan food, click here for Ebby, our Kenyan director’s, recipes and taste what your student might be eating.

Hot Meals

The meals we provide our students include an early lunch and and a Kenyan tea time. Our lunches often include locally-grown greens called sukuma wiki (kale) and ugali with fixin’s prepared by our on campus cook who sources everything from our school garden or the local market.

Our tea time includes traditional Kenyan tea and may include a Kenyan staple or snack like Kenyan sambusas, chapati, or kebabs 

For some students this may be their first or main meal of the day so Community Champions and Scholar Benefactors are greatly appreciated for making not only a difference in their education but in their general health.

School Supplies

Recently enrolled children becoming students and receiving their supplies for the year–thanks to generous donors like you.

Extracurricular activities, art lessons, and crafts that enhance a child’s learning experience. Donors that sponsor their full supplies for the year make extra fun, creative, and more fulfilling activities and lessons like this possible

Transportation

Our school operates two of state-of-the-art buses and one van to pick up students so they don’t spend their day walking to school through rural Kenya which can have wild dogs or other dangers like the busy road up the street. 

By sponsoring their transportation, you make their commute a safer one that allows them to save their energy for learning and play and gets them home early for supper.

Uniforms

If you ever come to visit, you’ll find that Kenyan children regard school very differently than many of their US counterparts. Kenyan students wear their uniforms with pride and take fastidious care of them. Going to school is a great honor and privilege to their families and their uniform symbolizes that. Many students come back to the school gates after the bus takes them home just to wave goodbye to their teachers when they leave.

Full Education

When you sponsor a child’s full education, you aren’t just supporting them, you’re supporting the people that nurture, teach, and make their dreams possible. These are their neighbors, their protectors, their advocates, and their mentors, because no quality education is possible without quality and caring teachers and community leaders.

School Fees

When you sponsor a child’s full school fees and education, you are enabling a family in-need to send their child to Kijana’s Global Innovation school at absolutely no cost to them. This also enables Kijana to have a more economically diverse student body. School fees cover everything, from graduation caps to all the details in between. These are often the bits and pieces that make school, well, fun! This includes things like paint for murals, arts and crafts, festival and celebration supplies, field trips, gardening needs, and more. Our students can’t wait to return to school and that’s due, in large part, to the fine details in providing a quality education
