First day of school for the new year for 5 High Schoolers and 23 grade schoolers. They were so excited. It was fun to be part of this. 11 kids are already at a Trade School in Jinja. Thank you to all sponsors and supporters!
Here are some photos….
They certainly do celebrate Christmas at the Lord’s Servants Home! The kid had a 3 week break from school through the end of December and spent it playing and getting extra tutoring in school subjects. We bought extra study material and a story book for each child. Just before Christmas everyone got a new outfit and play shirt which they really enjoy. Last week, they all were taken to the Kitale Nature Conservancy for a fun day. Christmas day was enjoyed with a special meal and treats. This was all made possible with kindness from the LSH sponsors.
We really believe that education is the only way the kids will be part of the solution of Kenya’s problems and have options in their own lives. Education and prayer is the means to our goals of them arriving at adulthood being prepared to be productive and realize God’s purpose for their lives.
The year-end results can be viewed in the link below. Many of the kids did really well, some exceptionally. We are seeing some kids struggle and several needing to repeat grades. A pattern exists that the kids coming from the government school, Misanga, are not being prepared adequately. They may do well at Misanga up to the 3rd or 4th grade but struggle after being enrolled at the tougher Seed of Hope School for the higher grades. We have employed 3 teachers to tutor the kids over Christmas break and will keep working with them. We also hope to expand the Lord’s Servants Academy to 1st through 3rd grades so that we can prepare our youngest kids better.
All our kids work very hard at school and are thankful to be able to go.

Education is a huge priority and the only way the kids will be part of the solution of Kenya’s problems and have options in their own lives. Education and prayer is the means to our goals of them arriving at adulthood being prepared to be productive and realize God’s purpose for their lives.
We have expanded the number of kids we can send to The Seed of Hope School and have started our own early education school, The Lord’s Servants Academy to make sure our young kids (and community kids) are prepared for grade school.
Our kids are doing pretty well and we have several in High School now. Some of them need extra tutor help and attention which is provided. Please check out the progress in the link below.
