Books for a Rural Orphanage
We recently introduced another new program, funded by Book Aid International (BAI). We selected a children's home - named Kip Keino - to assist with books. BAI provided us with USD1,800 and 350 books. We used the money to purchase 150 locally produced books, some in the Ndebele language, a cupboard, masks and sanitiser. Then we held a workshop for the staff at the home so that they could be proactive in helping the children with reading.

The children are of all ages.
Sitting on the ground is what they are used to doing in their villages
