School Fees needed for 5 homeless youth fees we care for on our farm plot


In the 10 years since our opening the Kensha Street Youth Football outreach in Mariakani coastal Kenya we have engaged with hundreds of homeless and other youth. At one stage we hired a house to be home for our leaders and others. 5 boys were chosen for us to care for and put through school. At the end of 2018 the 5 boys of various ages finished their primary studies. Now they must get to secondary school. We found a good school but the cost of tuition, text and other books and uniforms was far greater, even with them staying in our house on our farm plot.

We are happy to report that the oldest two, Hamasi and Daniel, have been sponsored and are enjoying their new school.. The three remaining are William [16], Ibrahim [Abraham 15] and Rama John [14]

The next oldest, ready to go to school, is William. [Photo middle back row]

He was born in Mariakani and is 16 years of age. He was brought up by a single parent after the father divorced his mother. His mother was once the cook in the original Kensha house . During his stay with his mum while he was cooking for the boys he developed interest, loved football and curious to know more about the Lord. They were really living in a hard situation so he thought the best option was to beg to stay with the other boys in order to find help. That is how he became a member of the Kensha family. One term at school costs Kenyan 20000/= being NZ$335. The uniform and school books etc is 21000/= or NZ$350. Please contribute to William so we can move onto the younger 2.

Total needed $685.
