How your help can change the world

The question was posed: if you could tell people from all over the world one thing, what would it be?

“It is good of you to help us; we need your help.” – Helen, 17, a scholarship applicant through the Kenyan Kids Foundation. She is lacking school fees to attend Form One. Her mother is disabled and she has a young sister. She wants to become a doctor.

“If they don’t support the foundation, we shall lose so many people.” – Julius Lamai, chairman of the Kenyan Kids Foundation. “Some people here in Kenya, they need help from America to support them because they want to learn, but they don’t have the school fees.”

“You were asking me yesterday what I can tell America: you help one person, and the person helps another person.” – Timothy, 21, who is waiting for exam scores from Form Four. He wants to become an engineer.

“I need help and Kenya needs help. We cannot do what I intend to do for the people of Kenya without their help. I know that, and I know that well. I want them to know that every dollar counts. You don’t have to be rich to make an impact on the people here. Together we can achieve so much.” – Wesley Korir, founder of the Kenyan Kids Foundation.

“We are telling them congratulations (for helping the Kenyan Kids Foundation). Thank you for that. I am telling Americans if they want to do short-term missions, there is a chance for that.” – Luke Kiptoo, pastor of the Community Bible Church.

“The Kenyan Kids Foundation needs to extend to those {needy} people. We depend on it like a pillar of life.” – Benjamin Kemboi, teacher at Tuigoin Primary School.

“We are very grateful for the work we are seeing. We want to extend our gratitude to those people.” – Isaac Ngetich, head teacher at Tuigoin Primary School.

“It is better for them to offer their support because it is better for the entire community.” – Joseph, 22, who is waiting for exam scores from Form Four. He wants to become a doctor.

“We are very appreciative of what (Americans) are doing for Africa. The Kenyan Kids Foundation – it’s bearing fruit. We have a lot of needs. We need their hands, we need them to come here and see. This will take us thousands of years to come out of this.” – Luke Kiptoo, pastor of the Community Bible Church
