Term 2, 2021
Greetings from Kiamaiko! It is rather strange ending our academic year in July, but here we are. Traditionally, our academic calendar starts in January and ends in November but government containment measures to curb COVID-19 have made this change inevitable. Nonetheless, we thank God for being with us this far and we appreciate your continued support and partnership as we work together to transform lives through the hope of Christ.
Total Enrolled: 1197 students
Total Unsponsored: 44 students

Hope Transforms: A Success Story
Stan* is a father of three and a parent at the Kiamaiko center. His two younger children are in grades five and two while his eldest is now in grade nine – an alumna at our school.
Before the children were enrolled into the MOHI program, Stan and his wife were struggling to make ends meet. He was working on a casual basis as a masonry where jobs were scarce while his wife was also a casual laborer. The children were enrolled in a private school and the school fees amount was a burden for the parents. After the children joined the MOHI program, Stan was able to start saving towards establishing his own business. For two years, he continued doing his work while saving steadily. He eventually set up his own business as a metal artisan making metal suitcases and various household appliances.
Being a part of our program made it possible for Stan to realize his dream. The commitment fees he was paying for his three children at MOHI was cheaper than what he used to pay for each individual child at their former school. As a result of this major savings towards school fees, he was able to put that money towards something else. The business is really flourishing and we make sure to send all our students transitioning to high school to his shop where they buy the metal suitcases.
We thank God for the change we have witnessed in this family economically. They are nothing like they were when we first met them and it is all because of God’s doing in their lives through MOHI.
- We are very proud of our scout’s club that participated in a locally organized competition where they emerged first. Some of the activities they engaged in included hiking, games such as blind man’s buff, dancing and athletic competitions.
- Some 120 boys and girls graduated from kindergarten and will be joining grade one in the coming school term.
- All our academic calendar activities went on as envisioned and we are grateful that there were no interruptions. All our students successfully sat for their end-of-term exams and will be moving on to the next grade.
- We were blessed to have Summit Christian Church visit us this term. They conducted VBS for over 1,000 students teaching them about trusting God. The students had a great time doing Bible story lessons, making crafts and playing games.
- The Summit team also distributed food baskets to 14 families in the four Kiamaiko neighborhoods that we serve.
- Pray for continued good health among our students and staff members.
- Praying for security within the Kiamaiko community more so the safety of our staff as they go into the community and mingle with residents.
- Pray for the political stability of our nation Kenya especially as we prepare for an election year – 2022.
