Thanks to the generous contributions of our Jirani donors and sponsors, we are able to move vulnerable Kenyan children (who have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS, or are in other difficult circumstances) from intolerable conditions to boarding schools or guardian's homes. They are then provided with school tuition, food, clothing, basic medical care and counseling.
In addition to providing for all costs related to education, The Jirani Project provides other material and social supports to each child's foster family or guardian, so each child can be properly cared for. The Project Coordinator, Mark Okello, facilitates this process—from finding guardians for orphans and services for children and families.
The Jirani Project currently provides assistance for children ages 4 to 21, from preschool to trade school. 53% of the children we support are girls, and 47% are boys.
We are both pleased and proud to announce that NINE of our Jirani young people have graduated their respective programs, and have achieved their immediate goals for employment or continuing education. Congratulations to our Jirani graduates:
