As we grow our programs to help these children with education and better lives, our costs are rapidly increasing:
600 children are now enrolled at our primary schools, at Rodi and the new one at Imbo. Our annual operational costs to feed, clothe and educate them, with some 75 boarding, is about to $190,000. Our Rodi school is now considered the 2nd best school in the entire county!
We have 100 graduates in high schools and 14 in colleges and universities in Kenya. One of our second year high schoolers achieved the highest math score in the entire county!
This year our budget for their tuition and expenses is $89,000 and that is likely to more than double in the next few years. Our desire is for all of them to complete higher education if they are able.
Our new primary school in the community of Imbo was completed this year. The cost of operating that new school will grow to about $100,000 in a few years.
