Elim School Picnic
One of my personal heroes (or heroines!) is Kate Clement, headmistress of Elim Elementary School and a 'mother' to the Faith Alive Support Group. She grew up struggling as a widow's child, and today cares for and educates OVCs (orphans and vulnerable children).
She's pictured here in December with her husband and some teachers who took Elim's OVCs on a picnic at Shere Hills, "a very good picnic area where most people relax during festive holidays." The children received gifts and enjoyed this most special day.
Currently 39 OVCs at Elim receive school scholarships thanks to many of you! If you would like to sponsor a child's education, it's only $155 per year.
