Journey Full of Surprise – an adoptive teacher in Kenya

How about spending a part of teacher's summer holiday at school? Quite crazy, isn't it? But I have tried it and I can't appreciate it more. I learned about Centre Narovinu 9 years ago, when our school adopted a Kenyan girl by this organisation. I have been following their activities since then, I was at meetings with Kenyan coordinators as well. And I have to add, I admire what they have done on Rusinga Island at Victoria Lake , the project called Island of Hope.

Stories of Adoptive Parents: Travelling to Kenya to meet the adopted children

In 2015, we decided to adopt 5-year old Rose from Rusinga Island. We had been planning to visit equatorial Africa for quite some time, but only after we had adopted Rose, our plans became more concrete. In the past, we had adopted a different girl from India through the project of long-distance adoption organized by another charitable organization. When she grew up and didn´t need our help anymore, we decided to join in the project of adoption organized by Center Narovinu.

      
        

Thank you in advance for your 2%!

Just as last year we would like to apply for 2% of your taxes, that only you decide about. Thank you, we do need them. Within the scope of the development support of the Slovak Republic, we managed to obtain a grant of 280,000 € for a construction of a boarding school at the Rusinga Island of the lake Victoria in western Kenya. Our own participation equals to 10%, which means that we have to secure over 30,000€ from our own sources.
