Sponsoring a child is one of the best ways to make a difference in this world and be involved in directly changing the life of one child.
Here at Friends Vision we truly believe that education is the way towards a better future, one where all children can dream, hope and work towards a brighter tomorrow.
Friends Vision Sponsorship Program
Friends Vision works closely with rescue and rehabilitation centers in Kenya. These centers act as a temporary home for orphaned, vulnerable, abused, deprived and destitute children. With limited funding the centers can only provide very basic food, shelter and little to no education. A majority of the children in our sponsorship program live at these centers and have no hope or inspiration of a brighter tomorrow. By sponsoring an underprivileged child with Friends Vision, you will not just give them a chance to gain an education but a chance for them to believe they have a future and become anything they wish as we intend to see our children through until they can fully be self-sustainable in the future they choose. Whether this involves studying at university, vocational training, apprenticeships or just helping to find them work; we will ensure all of our children have every opportunity at life every child should have the right to enjoy.
|2018 New Update||It continues to be an interesting, challenging, rewarding and evolving journey for us as we move into our eighth year. While itís been around two years since my last update (so sorry), the wheels have still been turning over as we venture into new territory this year. Our focus on sustainability is in full force with some exciting new partnerships; we have gained tax deductibility status in Australia; welcomed new staff members and new children and had the first of our young adults finishing High School and beginning our transition program.|
|2015 News Update||All in all it has been a busy, exciting and challenging year for us at Friends Vision as we slowly move through some changes that have taken place within our organisation. Throughout the year we have welcomed new staff, gained our Kenyan NGO status, began our farming project and started to move towards a more sustainable future.|
|2013 News Update||We have had a very busy year at Friends Vision with myself spending 10 months in Kenya to help lay the ground work for new projects and network within the local community (amongst many other things!). This year we employed two new staff members, saw volunteers, friends and family join us in Kenya to see our projects and welcomed some new children into our sponsorship program. We overcame many challenges that Kenya seems to throw at us at any given time and have slowly made progress on our existing projects getting us another step closer to building our first children's home. Have a read below of the year that was. I hope you enjoy and all have a great Christmas ahead!|
