Every Tuesday I'll be updating the blog with information about the ministry we're currently supporting. Right now that is Royal Kids School in Mombasa, Kenya. All profits from the sales in the Radical Crafts shop through the end of April will go to the fund to build the boarding students a new dormitory.
In order to know exactly what you're supporting, here's a bit more info from E3 Kids' website:
"The Vision of Royal Schools is to assist families, regardless of their ability to pay, in equipping students to develop their individual gifts, academically, spiritually, physically and socially, and to do so in a manner that brings honor and glory to God."
Founded: January 2000
Enrolled Students: 400
Scholarship Students: 120
Full-Time Boarding Students: 22
High School Boarding Students: 16
Just a few months ago they finished raising money for a well and were able to complete the work so that the school could have clean water on the premises, instead of having to haul it. This has obviously made a huge difference in the operation of the school, and I'm confident that our work in raising money will also have a big impact.
In addition to the dorm, which I've already highlighted, the school is in need of finished classrooms. You can see the amazing difference between one of the old classrooms and a new one (both pictured below):
Please keep this school and their work in your prayers - the teachers and staff make huge sacrifices in order to be able to give these kids a chance at an education and to equip them to make a difference.
