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.

Sometimes the best way to help children is to help their teachers. That’s why we provide health insurance for the hard-working teachers at the Starkid School and Rescue Centre in Nairobi, Kenya. Last year, Starkid staff and their families were enrolled in Kenya’s National Hospital Insurance Fund. Two of the first beneficiaries were babies James (left) and Jean Marie (right) shown here with their proud parents. Starkid teachers are charged with educating 165 students, but earn less than $100 month and put in long hours, frequently working second jobs on nights and weekends. Thanks to your contributions, they now enjoy the benefits of a health insurance safety net. We join them in saying in Swahili “Asante Sana” – Thank you!
