COMMIT Ministries is helping with a newly developed and desperately-needed secondary school among the Kuria Tribe in the village of Nyabikongori located at the southern tip of Nyanza Province Kenya, near the Tanzania border. This region is among the poorest on Earth and those living here have no hope for a future. Unemployment is over 80% and HIV/AIDS has killed many parents making it impossible for many of these deserving kids to pay for their school feesÖmany are even sent home. Your sponsorship provides a hot lunch, school uniform, PTA fees, and even helps the school to maintain their facility. This is a horribly impoverished community and students without a sponsor will not be able to attend school. This young man is GIDEON KEGERA MWITA. As of May 2, he is 17 years old and a very good student in Form 2. His parents died of HIV/AIDS and he now lives with his brother and 3 siblings, trying to survive as peasant farmers on a small plot of land they tend for food. There is no discernable income though occasionally they do sell some vegetables but clearly itís not nearly enough for this struggling family. Gideon lists Christian Studies as his favorite subject, enjoys playing soccer, and hopes to become a lawyer someday. We pray you will sponsor Gideon and give him the opportunity to realize his genuine potential.
