Africa Connect Website 

     Celebrating New Beginnings in 2020!
     Since hearing 19 months ago that the construction of a new superhighway would cause the demolition of the preschool that Africa Connect supports in Kitasle, Kenya, the road to stabilization has had many turns! In October, as the children celebrated the close of the school year, national and political events cut off hope for classes to continue in the Graceway buildings for the coming new year.  With little time, land prices soring and confidence in clear title transference dropping, we sought help from a long-time Kenyan friend who recently has been ordained as pastor and built a church in Kitale.  Our Kenyon partners agreed to work with him, and construction of the new preschool began in early December; on the same day, with no new requests to our donors, the funds that were needed were graciously donated in full! The staff is working hard to have the school registered and ready for use when classes open in January. 
   The school will be  better than ever, with 3 classrooms, a kitchen with secure storage, an office, upgraded toilets and water system, and plenty of room for the children to play – and all for $13,000!
   We trust this little school will continue to be a lighthouse for God’s compassion for the poor; not only to provide education to needy children, but to be an effective tool in the hands of the local church to impact the children’s families and community with the love of Jesus, both in Word and in practical help.
   We also trust this move will provide new beginning for implementing strategies that enhance parental responsibility and, in time project self-sufficiency. We greatly appreciate your prayers for all of this!

With wishes for a merry Christmas, and deep gratitude for your partnership from the Africa Connect Team!
