Joy Center Academy
In Kenya, the first school term (Jan-Mar) is
over. The children have an April break,with some tutoring classes and a
spiritual renewal time before the second 3 month term begins in May.
In November of 2012, sixteen Joy Center Academy children will write their big Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) 3 day set of exams at the end of grade (standard) 8. These exams determine which Secondary schools a student qualifies for: District, Provincial or National. This will be our first class to “graduate” from Gr. 8 to High School.
Each child at Joy Center a sponsor paying $50 per month. Please give us any leads to new sponsors as God brings someone to mind. We need more sponsors. The children from ECD to grade eight need books, pens, pencils and chalks.
Most of the staff at Joy Center Academy work on voluntary basic. Only four teachers are employed. We are hoping to start paying them soon as the Lord bring in help. They work in the following areas: administration, Social work, Spiritual/counseling, cooks, matrons, maintenance/farm manager, farm workers, sanitation, guards, teachers, tailoring teacher.
We require 80 lockers for Primary School pupils. One locker costs $60. Our highest expense is food and basic needs for the children.
These children live by faith believing that our heavenly father will provide.
