My husband and I just visited our sponsored child in Kenya. We were extremely impressed by the professionalism, enthusiasm, and dedication of the CFCA staff in making a difference in the lives of the children and aging who are beneficiaries. Children receive an edication and have their basic needs met for only $30 a month. After high school they may attend a university or a trade school, whichever is more appropriate. They become self-sustaining. During this time, a relative (usually a mother) is involved in a Mothers' Group providing support to each other and re-inforcing the importance of education. The mothers are also taught a marketable skill to increase their financial independence. This foundation provides hope to those who most need it and helps them plan to change their futures.

We have seen first hand the dramatic difference this organization makes in the lives of those in need. On a personal level, I strive to raise awareness of the wonderful work done by CFCA.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
ask CFCA to consider other options to spreading the word about their good work.
