15. The story of a supported child and an adoptive parent: Introducing Wiclif and thanking the adoptive parents for their 18-year story

“We've been watching Wiclif since he was a little boy who grew up to be a handsome young man with a college degree. He often mentioned that he wanted to do something to help others. I believe he will succeed. We thank him for being able to share joy and worry with him, we thank him for being able to be here for him, for being here with us despite the distance between the two continents. We also thank the Centrum Narovinu for their help, which is meaningful and beneficial for the gradual comparison of differences between people.”


School structure changes since January 2021 concerning children in the Distance Adoption program in Kenya

In January 2021 Kenyan government decided that all kids will get back to school and therefore the government made a plan of how to catch up “lost year 2020” in two years, 2021 and 2022. In order to do so, they have changed the school year from traditional three terms to four terms. Most of the kids will attend school more weeks and they will have shorter vacations. Some students in final classes have to do final exams followed by longer vacations. Those students will continue to have just 3 school terms, but with different starting dates of terms.

13. The Story of a Supported Child: Introducing Riki and many thanks to adoptive parents for their joint journey since the beginning of the project in 2002

“First he sent us cute pictures from his life and the letters were written instead of him by a coordinator from Kenya. From the first grade, he learned English and began writing the first letters. Riki's English was getting better and better, and we could use his letters to get a picture of his family's difficult life and the current situation in Kenya. We were all happier that we were able to support Riki even outside the regular payments. I consider the possibility of supplementary health insurance, which repeatedly helped Riki when he got malaria, to be very important.


12. The story of a supported child and an adoptive family: Introducing Preslyne and thanking the adoptive mother very much for a shared story

Today, Preslyne is a young, pretty, ambitious girl with progressive views on the position of women in society, on the issue of practicing circumcision or forced marriages of minor brides. She is studying pedagogy at Kennyatta University and her ambition is to set an good example for her community. As a future teacher, she wants to educate children who will raise Kenya to a higher level in the future. She makes us, the adoptive parents, very happy with her exemplary diligence, because if I can quote her own words: "Education is the key to our life success".
