Newsletter June 2013

In March of this year Janet travelled to Kenya again. A lot had to be arranged. The schools were closed for two weeks in connection with the elections. Fortunately, the elections went well. After that, ordinary life could get back on track.

The work of our volunteer Mary in Kenya has become a lot heavier now that there are also children in secondary education. That's not in their hometown. Mary visits them there at boarding school and arranges the payments. She receives a small volunteer fee for her work.

The foundation chooses to let a child go to a boarding school after primary school despite the higher costs, among other example. Because it's much harder at home to do your homework. The child's world is also enlarged. A boarding school is a lot different from grandma's home. A quarter internal at school and then 4 weeks home.

John and Anita van Leeuwen, loyal donors from the Netherlands came to Kenya as a tourist in March but have also been able to experience the work of the foundation. They have seen the differences between a school with good facilities and a poor school in the countryside. Together with Janet and the volunteers, they helped hand out stuff at the school where the foundation helps in the countryside. The children were very happy with the balls, the plates and the toothpaste and of course also with the computers. You can see all this on the photos and video of 2013.

Janet has also been to a group of people who don't have their own place of residence. The government has yet to arrange a house for them because they became homeless by a tribal war in 2007. They live in houses of corrugated plates, corn stems, wood and other residual material. The foundation has given them clothes collected in the Netherlands and shipped with a container to Kenya together with the computers for school. The recipients of the clothes were extremely happy. The little bit of money they have can now be spent on nutrition and no longer on clothes. This visit can also be found on the photos and video of 2013 so you can get a good picture.

In February this year, the RIGII Children Foundation received a donation of € 500 from the Protestant Church "the Meeting" in Nunspeet.

The RIGII Children Foundation was chosen this year to receive part of the proceeds from the Queen Market on 27 April 2013 from the Protestant Municipality of Nunspeet. This donation was €4250,-.

Thank you very much for this and to all the others who supported the foundation with clothing, computers, toys and donations. In March this year, Janet again traveled to Kenya.

Despite the higher costs, the foundation chooses to let a child go to a boarding school after elementary school partly because at home it is much more difficult to do your homework. Also, the world of the child increases. A boarding school is a lot different than at home with Grandma. A quarter internally at school and then 4 weeks home.

Janet also went to a group of people who do not have their own place to live. The government has yet to arrange a home for them because they are homeless since a tribal war in 2007. They live in houses made of corrugated iron, corn stalks, wood and other waste material. The foundation has given them clothes collected in the Netherlands and a container is shipped to Kenya with the computers for school. The recipients of the clothes were very happy. The little money that they have can now be spent on food and not on clothes. Also this visit can be found on the photos and videos of 2013 so you get a good picture.
