Description of the situation: Jeremia was born in 2003. He lives with his ageing grandmother after his mother died because of cancer. She is the bread winner of the family – she was left a small piece of land to take care of the child. Sometimes they have to borrow food from neighbours and other good people. The area is a bit dry and nobody is willing to take care of his education. Family monthly income is 500 KES (approximately 4 EUR). They live in rental wooden house, use firewood for cooking, parrafine lamp for lighting and water get from river. Jeremia is healthy boy.

The project of remote support „Adoptions of African children“ mediates an access to education for poor Kenyan children without pulling them out of their natural environment and community. This project has been running since 2002 and has helped more than 3500 children. School fees at primary school are CZK 7200 (€300) / year, and at secondary school, college and orphanage are CZK 16800 (€660). The payment can also be broken down into multiple instalments.

Section of detailed information provides an overview of how this projects works. In case you have already chosen a child from our database, you can also find here all the steps to be taken in order to adopt a child remotely.

You can also provide the adoptive children by health insurance, that covers any medical treatment the child needs during 1 year.

Adoption Friend Club forms an integral part of this project, and enables to support education of Kenyan children by one-time contribution anytime during the year.
