A new report from UNICEF confirms what we've long known ... African girls and women need a reliable and affordable supply of sanitary products. African Children's Haven works with the ABCs of Sex Education and other African non-profits to make that happen.

Pleased to report that five orphaned girls who received scholarships from African Childrens Haven recently completed their college and university studies and are now entering the professional workforce. That’s a significant achievement for any African woman, let alone an orphan who has struggled against the odds to succeed. Two of the scholars graduated from university with BSc degrees in education with majors in math, physics and chemistry. Two others completed their studies in the medical field and are part of a cadre of young women providing health services to the poor. A fifth finished her course with a diploma in financial management and is pursuing a career in banking. Each of these talented young women plan to continue studying towards advanced degrees and African Childrens Haven will be there to aid them in their journey. Meanwhile, we continue to support four remaining Carole Cole scholars as they finalize their studies over the next 18 months.

Our friend and colleague John Eanes was featured in the June-July issue of the Kiwanis International magazine for his work with African Childrens Haven and our Kenyan partners at Mission With A Vision. Late last year, Eanes – a master mechanic – helped plan for the purchase of a new John Deere tractor and then volunteered two weeks of his time to work with Mission staff and residents teaching tractor operations and maintenance. During the first six months of 2018, the tractor was used to plant some 100 acres of wheat and forage crops in an effort to generate income and put the Mission on the road to financial independence. Funding for the tractor was provided by the Moody Permanent Endowment Fund of Galveston, Texas with additional support from the Galveston Kiwanis Club.
