Daylight Students Clean up Trash in the Community

Kenya is making a national push to keep their beautiful country green and free of trash.

Daylight is on a beautiful green 12 acre hilltop campus with 300 students. We work hard to keep it clean and free of trash.Our cooking staff uses reusable cups and plates at meals. Plastic bottles are reused many times to prevent unnecessary waste. Then they are careful to put their trash in the garbage so that everyone can run and play safely. But there are many parts of the Daylight neighborhood, especially along the side of the road, where trash just gets tossed into the bushes.

So Daylight students and staff decided to clean up their community!

Daylight students are leaders and part of being a leader is serving your neighbors, so our students made signs for Daylight and dressed up in “recycling costumes” made of corn and rice bags from school.

Then our students and staff walked the neighborhood and cleaned up trash.Thank you for supporting our young leaders as they serve their beautiful, and a little greener, community!

We are also so grateful to our partner church Lake Sarah Baptist Church who had an Africa Themed Vacation Bible School this summer. The kids learned about the amazing cultures of Africa and raised funds to support the students at Daylight School!


Our Children Love Sponsoring a Classroom at Daylight

Written by Rachel James on her experience sponsoring a classroom at Daylight. 

Our family started sponsoring a fourth grade classroom at Daylight School.

We picked fourth grade because our kids were in 3rd and 5th grade at the time.We have received multiple letters from the students in the classroom sharing their lives, goals, and academic favorites.My family loves reading the letters and seeing the pictures. Our children have written back to the classrooms as well.

It’s so amazing to be able to support teachers and learners in Kenya through the excellent organization of Daylight!

We invite you to sponsor a classroom at Daylight. A gift of $30 a month will cover the costs of a student’s classroom experience and education.

When giving monthly, you’ll be partnered with a specific class of your choice (grade 4, 5, 6, or 7) and stick with them until they graduate 8th grade. Along with your financial gift, you are invited to write letters to the class. In return, you’ll receive updates and letters from students three times a year.
