Born in in the village of Kinyago-Dandora, Kenya on April 23, 2008, Jacelyne Muthoni Wang’ombe dreams of someday becoming a teacher. But, fulfilling her dream is only possible through the ministry of the Kenya Children’s Fund. Jacelyne lives in a very poor village where families live in homes made of sticks and mud, with no windows, water, electricity or sanitation. There is no money for proper nutrition, health care or school fees (required in Kenya). Many children are forced to work long hours at hard, even dangerous jobs to provide food for their family (making only 15 to 35 cents per day).
Through the ministry of the Kenya Children’s Fund, Our Savior School students play an important role in ensuring Jacelyne’s education. Our Savior Students “adopted” their sister in Christ in 2012 when Jacelyne entered pre-school. Each year OSS students are excited to continue their sponsorship, as they receive letters and pictures from Jacelyne. OSS donations are used to pay for a year of schooling, all Jacelyne’s school materials, her uniform, and a hot meal each day. OSS students have raised the sponsorship of Jacelyne every year through their Chapel offerings. When OSS children raise more than what is required the extra money is used to provide Jacelyne’s family with extras such as a Solar Light Kit, Easter and Christmas Care Baskets, and a special birthday present just for Jacelyne.
We are so thankful for the support of our OSS families to sponsor Jacelyne. While we can’t change the whole world, OSS students are changing the lives of others… one child at a time.
