We have some very exciting news to share with you. We have just received an email telling us that one of our Kikima grandchildren, Vincent has been accepted into Actuarial Science at Jomo Kenyata University of Agriculture and Technology. Our first university child and it has only taken 8 years to achieve as I’m sure you all remember that most of our children were not in school when we started this project 8 years ago. So, Congratulations to Vincent, his gogo and his grannie and a pat on the back for us
Thank you from the Kings-Kikima Grannies
We wish to say a heartfelt thank you to all who have so generously supported our project in Kikima, Kenya.
By donated jewelry and yard sale items and supporting our fundraising events we have been able to send 60 children to school, 15 to high school and four to post secondary school.
We also thank the Mud Creek Rotary club, Acadia Rotaract, Rotary district #7820 and the University Women’s Club for their financial assistance and support.
Together we have made a difference in the lives of the children and their grannies.
Our Grannie Story has been published inMay/June edition of Saltscapes! Katherine Mott has written a wonderful article about Ruth Kyatha and how we connected through the grannies in Kenya and Kings County. It is thrilling to see this in print! Thank you, Katherine, for sharing the journey and reaching out to others.
If anyone would like more information,please email, firstname.lastname@example.org or search Kings Kikima grannies on Facebook.
