We hope this message finds you and your families well. The world has certainly changed, and we are feeling it in Kenya too. Many of you have asked what is happening here, and we are so thankful for your care and your prayers.
While Kenya so far has only a small number of coronavirus cases compared to other countries and there are no reported cases in our region, the Kenyan government is being proactive and ordered all schools in the country to close. As you know, many of our children get most or all of their meals at our school - so our biggest concern has been ensuring that they still have food to eat. While we are not holding classes for an indefinite period of time, we are continuing to provide meals to our students. We are so grateful to be able to do this, and the children are grateful too! Thank you!
Please know that our hearts are with you all through this shared experience. ... See MoreSee Less
We are preparing Heritage graduates for successful futures!!
Our recent high school graduates just completed a computer class through the Kenya Institute of Management. When asked what they thought about the class, the students said “WOW!” They loved learning computer skills! Nixon, the KIM teacher, presented certificates to the students and a mug to symbolize Heritage Secondary School’s partnership with KIM. He will return to speak to current students about career opportunities. We are so thankful to a VPA donor for making this program possible! ... See MoreSee Less
