New Year's Message from Fanuel

Dear Sponsors and Friends,
The new year is here.  2012  has been successful for us and hope that 2013 will be even better.
Our prayers and wish is that more and more sponsors come forward to sponsor children both at WHS, GPS and HH for it is the sponsorship that has kept these children in school, put books in their hands, keep teachers in class and so much more.  It enables the children to learn well and before our own eyes  transformation of our poverty stricken community is taking place and soon and very soon light will be showing at the end of the tunnel. What  we  most need at the moment is to have more children sponsored so that  we can help our community. On this may I take this opportunity  to urge our sponsors whose children did the KCSE exams last year or are no longer  coming to our schools to consider  sponsoring another needy child, we all reach out to our friends, family ,colleagues, church, etc. and spread the word, for the more sponsors we get we shall be able to keep  so many more children in school and many lives will be transformed in the process.
This year our priorities are in improving the school infrastructure, ie our primary school classrooms, being that they are temporary they are not comfortable for children to learn in during rainy season because of leaking.  Then we need to purchase the remaining plots of land and sanitary facilities.
At the same we would like to do some purchasing of textbooks  and  other teaching aids in areas we feel our children are not performing well, e.g mathematics, so as to improve their performance.
Thank you so very much. I wish you and your families a happy and successful year 2013.
God bless
Fanuel Okwaro
The Director
Galilee Primary School,  WHS and Holly House Children's Homes
