Background information about Korogocho slums
Update, January 2011.
Dear friends, below is an e-mail I received recently from Father Erastus. I already decided to sponsor Ritah's tuition fees. Are you interested to help another one of these bright students? The amount for one student per year is around $450-$500 (please contact us for specific updates). Even if you can only donate $20....$50....$100...any amount will help them.
This is also an excellent gift for your friends and loved ones, to send a promising and smart student to a good high school.
You can send donations to Rehema via us (click here).

Many thanks in advance!
I do hope that you are enjoying the festive season like us here. We are doing well in almost everything God has alway been their for us. The children at our home enjoyed Christmas and are looking forward to a blessed New year.
The primary final national exams were out yesterday and was received with jubilation especially for the children in our home for they achieved marks that will earn them a chance in high schools. the following are some of the children within the center who performed well: Samuel Eshuchi: 328 marks, Ritah Anindo: 316 marks, Jonathan Atemo: 309 marks, Boniface Joseph: 327 marks, Titus Kithimba: 284 marks and Helen Omukhango: 263.
The Estimated school fees per child is Kshs. 35,000.00 [U.S dollars 455].
The challenge now is on our side to ensure that they progress to high school. At the moment we do not have anything for this, that is why we would just ask you to join us in prayers for God's providence.
Happy New year and prosperous 2011.
Rev. Erastus Omukhango
