Our Parish Sponsored Child Nicholas Onyango Okondo

Nicholas was born on November 22, 2004; he is now 13 -years old. He lives with his mother, father, and a younger sister and brother in the Nyangoma area of Kenya, Africa along the shore of Lake Victoria. The family lives in a house made of mud and sticks with a corrugated metal roof. They get water from a rain catchment in the yard, and they share a latrine with neighbors. They are Christian and speak Luo. Nicholas walks 45 minutes to primary school. His favorite subject is Math.

In addition to supporting Nicholas, his community benefits as well.  Here are a few ways our sponsorship has made a difference:

  • Construction and repair of a school.
  • Training for adolescents on reproductive health.
  • Providing mosquito nets.
  • Training for volunteers on early childhood care and development.
  • Supporting the formation and strengthening children and youth programs.

Nicholas would like to receive letters from his adopted family, and he would especially like photos and children’s drawings. A birthday card is always special and the Family Worship children sent him a card this year; it included an extra gift of $30. Include the information below on all enclosures.
