I simply wish more people knew 1) how much of donated funds go directly to put Kenyan kids IN SCHOOL, and 2) what an essential task DAF provides in Kenya. I have personally visited many of the DAF students in their schools in Kenya, and seen the work that DAF does. I have seen what a difference education makes in their lives, and also how DAF holds the students accountable for their academic progress. PLEASE give, and please ask others to do the same!

As a person who grew up in the village and witnessed poverty first hand, I know what difference this organization is making. By educating a child, you are a catalyst that creates a chain reaction which is capable of lifting a family out of poverty. Indirectly, you influence a village towards that direction. I'm privileged to be a part of this organization.

This is a great foundation that I would encourage anyone to be part of. It is wonderful to see the smiles of students who have been helped and to know that pursuing education helps improve not only their lives but also that of their families. By supporting them we are changing lives of children who have been given the opportunity to 'live again'. Thanks to the great work the foundation has done and is still doing in Kenya.

I have been a supporter of DAF for a couple of years. What is gratifying is knowing that a child who would not have gone to school due to lack of money is able to finish high school, and go onto university. This child will then able to help many others in different ways.
What is also comforting is knowing that 100% of the money I give will support that child in their education.

The Deborah Amoi Foundation is a wonderful organization that has produced a positive impact on the lives of so many underprivileged youths. I firmly believe education is the path to a brighter future. It promotes self worth, confidence and opens doors to so many possibilities that were thought to be unattainable. I have been a confident donor since the inception of this nonprofit because of its integrity and indomitable spirit. I believe and support its mission and appreciate its values of giving back to the community and being a positive role model for others. What's really heartwarming is the founder was inspired by her mother to start this foundation and has involved her own children to help continue its mission. A family with such commitment and love for their work is a family I am proud to have known for over 25 years!! Please support and donate to the Deborah Amoi Foundation!

The Deborah Amoi Foundation does wonderful and important work. As an educator myself, I know how critical education is and what a difference it can make in the life of a young person. I am proud to support DAF. I know the money and goods I donate go directly to where they are needed most.

Deborah Amoi Foundation has been a blessing to our Auxiliary. We had Sis. Anne to come and speak with our Women's Missionary Union of the San Joaquin Missionary Baptist District Association. We are group of women who have donated for years to a foreign mission project. In 2009, we started looking for a new mission project. Sis. Anne impressed us so much it was an unanimous decision to support the Foundation.

Every year, Sis. Anne sends our Auxiliary pictures and information about what is happening with the Foundation. She is easily accessible to us whenever we call or contact her. We are so thankful to have such a great project to participate with and donate to.

Education means a lot to every woman in our Auxiliary and what Sis. Anne's mother started in Kenya was been a blessing to many and will continue as long as good people continue to give. The more we give the more children who will receive a much needed education in this changing world.

What an amazing opportunity for these youngsters to receive an education that will help pull them out of the poverty many are stuck in. With out an education most will not be able to succeed. This organization not only gives them a Christian education, but will aid in further advancement into society. It enables and equips them with the everyday skills needed to live daily lives as adults. Thank you for taking an interest in the lives of these youngsters.

The Deborah Amoi Foundation has provided educational support for young girls and boys to attend secondary school in Kenya. Most of these young individuals would not have had the opportunity to attend secondary school without the Foundation's support because their parents were unable to pay the tuition required for their ward to attend school.
