Rescuing more babies, important info for all sponsors, fundraiser ideas and more!
As of July 19, the Dream Centre is now 100% approved to rescue more babies! We have met the government's high standards of child care and we are free to have our professional social worker place the children in loving Kenyan family settings. We are so excited about this!
We currently have a waiting list of sponsors to sponsor the babies (and give them a name!) as we are able to rescue them, which is so amazing!
READ THIS BLOG POST FROM OUR KENYA STAFF: "His ribs could be seen protruding from the sallow skin on his chest, a clear indication that he was in dire need of food. The biting strike of hunger had made him resort to chewing the skin of his fingers leaving them discoloured, bloody and smelly. At the time of his rescue, Jadon was a weak malnourished baby waiting for either a miracle of salvation or succumb to his fate.

CHANGE Thank you to the sponsors who have graciously increased their giving from $40 to $50/month. We are working on calling all of our sponsors about this. We have never increased this amount since we started sponsoring in 2007. We want to make sure that we are taking the best care of the children and $50/month will allow us to do the best that we know how.
If you have not received a call about this yet, please call us at 403-343-6570 ext 6.
We are proud to say that we only have 1 sponsor per child
(other than the kids living in HOH homes who require more funds and sometimes additional sponsors to secure these funds.)
FAQMy sponsor child is over 18. What happens now?
Many of the children don't start school until later in their lives because they didn't have the funds to pay the school fees until they were sponsored. For example, if sponsorship started for a child when they were 10 years old, they could be in school until they are 22. This is often the case. However, we are actively looking for ways for these teens to become self-sufficient to support themselves to finish school and go into trades.
