Congratulations to the students and teachers at the Judah Education Centre in Nairobi for successfully -- and safely -- reopening their classrooms after a year of lock-down and struggle. The Centre, located in the city’s Mathare slum neighborhood, provides quality education for some 75 disadvantaged primary school students. The children are shown here playing tug of war at a party held recently to celebrate the end of the first term of 2021. Classes will resume next month as will our support for this wonderful organization.

With hunger and malnutrition growing in the face of the pandemic, our school lunch programs are playing an increasingly important role in making sure that vulnerable children get the nourishment they need. For example, this past week, 250 children at the Overseers Educational Centre in the Kongori neighborhood, one of Nairobi, Kenya's worst slums, benefited from the program. The menu included beans, rice and vegetables in addition to maize meal, Kenya’s most important staple food. In addition to providing healthy lunches, we’re also distributing food to the children's families for when school is not in session. With unemployment hitting record highs, and without supplemental food supplies, most Overseer families can barely afford one meal per day. Your support will help keep the food flowing in the months ahead, Thank you!

When schools reopen in early January, Kenyan children will be required to wear face masks. But for far too many families struggling to put food on the table, the modest cost of a mask is often beyond reach. African Childrens Haven and its partners at the Mission With A Vision organization are helping by employing local women to produce thousands of masks for distribution to needy students. It’s one small way that we’re helping local schools to reopen safely in the face of the pandemic. Your support makes that possible. Wishing you and yours a safe and very happy holiday season.

The Faces of African Childrens Haven … The young girl who's run away from her village seeking safety from genital cutting … The child who wants to get an education and learn how to use a computer… The girl who’s learning to play an instrument and hopes one day to become a nurse … We’re African Childrens Haven, a small non-profit that’s helping hundreds of children and their families lead healthier, more prosperous lives ... Your donations are what makes it happen. Thank you!

This past Saturday, scholarship student Irene Pronet graduated from university and is set to begin work as a registered nurse at the Temeke Hospital in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. With the pandemic raging across Africa, her skills are needed more than ever. We first came to know Irene as a middle school student at the Bethsaida School for Orphan Girls as part of our Carole Cole Science and Math Scholarship Program. Hers has been a long journey with a happy ending. She’s pictured here with her mentor, Dr. Aichi Kitalyi, a member of our board and one of Tanzania's foremost agricultural scientists. Congratulations Irene!
