We are Over Half Way to Our Pledge Goal for the 2018 School Year!

In January the students of Daylight Kenya begin a new school year. New classes and new challenges and a lot of excitement. Will you pledge to support Daylight’s students this year?

Each month our U.S. partners help us to send $6,000 to support the school with their generous gifts. In addition to special projects like finishing classrooms, adding windows, and getting new bunk beds – your gifts are helping us to provide food, school supplies, teacher salaries, and the everyday needs of Daylight’s students.

This year we have 31 generous families that have pledged to give to Daylight monthly. We are just over halfway towards our goal for the year for 2018 pledges.

We need 30 pledges of $100 per month to reach our goal. Will you pledge to help Daylight meet these basic needs for our students?

We can hardly believe that Daylight has been around for ten years, but we have come a long ways. We began Daylight as a way to support thirty children whose parents had died. During our first month, January 2007, we had thirty kindergartners meeting in a church Sunday-School classroom. Our first month’s budget was $250, which all came directly from our U.S. Director, Nathan Roberts, to his college roommate, Michael Kimpur.

Since then it has been an amazing journey with so many adventures. With your help, and the help of so many Kenyans and Americans working side-by-side, we have graduated two classes into high school! And are now educating 400 students on two campuses!

Please join us at our anniversary party to help celebrate this incredible school and the people who make it special.

Jedida Wants to Give Computers to Students

“I want to give computers to kids so they can study math and English,” Jedida says smiling. She is in 7th grade at Daylight, and she wants to be an computer engineer when she grows up. “Math is easy for me and I want to start studying engineering on computers.”18 - JedidaAt school she loves playing hide and seek with her friends in the fields and bushes around Daylight Kapenguria’s twelve-acre campus.

Jedida is blessed to have two supportive parents that she lives with in town. Her parents are great roles models of community service. Her father is a doctor and her mother is a nurse who serves at a small community clinic in town. She learned the importance of medical professionals when she was sick with a cold and had to miss school. Jedida’s family contributes financially to Daylight to help pay for her education.

On behalf of Jedida, her family, and her hide-and-seek buddies, we want to thank you for making Jedida’s education possible.
