Latest update from Kenya about the ‘Jambo Sana’ project

Kenya Visit 2007 in pictures.

John and Faith Nyota have been three years in the Wimbledon Circuit. They were planted there by the World Church Organisation and one of the conditions was that they take a three month furlough after three years. So they set out for Kenya this Summer.

This raised £638.00 for the "Toto Simba" project. Some monies were donated and Gift Aided so we shall benefit by another £91.56 pounds when the taxman eventually pays up. This will bring a grand total of £729.56. Well done everyone and many, many thanks to the artistes, audience, front of house and backroom boys, in fact all who made a thoroughly enjoyable evening possible.

Everyone who went found it a very emotional experience and something which they would not have missed for the world. The villagers in Kenya, although not having very much of their own, were generous to a fault. There's many a lesson to be learnt by all of us.

Graduation Day April 2015

"For me it was a glorious day, to see so many people gathered and all the parents and the graduates celebrating made me tearful, I knew for sure their lives will never be the same again.

They can now go and get a job, start a trade and support their families. I was particularly impressed by the two students who made it into the top national schools from the feeding program. Jackson Njuguna went to Nairobi school and is the envy of the entire village. But even more so seeing a girl from the village, Josephine Mumbi who went to Moi School Kamangu. Her speech was full of thanks to Rafiki and Jambo Sana without whom she would not have made it."
