Great News for Rudisha Sponsorship Program

There have been a lot of exciting things happening in the last several months that I've been waiting to share with my followers. I am very happy to give special thanks to two groups who have taken it upon themselves to volunteer their time and raise money to sponsor children in Moshi, Tanzania for the Rudisha Sponsorship Program. 

In February of this year, a group of ladies from the Horton Interact Club (Youth Rotary Club of New Minas) spread their love on Valentines Day and raised $200 dollars selling flowers in their annual fund raiser. 

The Rotary Club of New Minas Sunshine also matched the Interact Clubs donation, making this the largest donation to date for the sponsorship program. I can not say thank you enough to both groups, asante sana (thank you very much) for your warm hearts.  The funds raised will cover the costs for schools books, uniforms and school tuition for both Julianna and Lucas Costatin for 2014. Julianna and Lucas are most grateful for the sponsorship and send along a very BIG thanks to both clubs.

Across the Atlantic, in a small town on the south coast of Newfoundland, another group deserves a very special thanks.  The Harbour Breaton Storytime group which was directed by Corina Ivany also had love in their hearts this spring. The Storytime group raised $200 dollars to sponsor one of our youngest sponsor children, Noel Leonard Lema. 

The donation will cover the cost for uniform and tuition at Stella Maris Primary School in Tanzania. You can read about their story in the Harbour Breton Coaster online.

A very BIG thank you to all of the children for their lovely artwork and gifts which will be given to Noel in November. 

We are most thankful to the Harbour Breton Storytime groups, Corina Ivany and the community of Harbour Breton for the donations. 

This leaves us still praying for donations and sponsorship for 2014 school fees for five children; Nancy and Joel Mmary and Ally, Hasani and Rashidi.  You can donate online, any amount helps.

Visit our sponsorship page for photos of each child or see even more photos on our YouTube Chanel.

Keep following along for more exciting news which I will reveal later this week!
