Creation of Hope

March 2015 Update

School donations


Hello Anita,

We have completed our fund raising here at Lockview School in St. Catharines and between our gum chewing period and our cupcake sale we raised $594.21.  I’m assuming that I make the cheque out to Creation of Hope? Also, could you please send me an address that I can mail the cheque to. As always, it was good for our students to think of others less fortunate and raising the money for your charity was a character building exercise for many of them. We would love to hear what the money was used for and if possible, would love to see a picture of some of the children at the orphanage. Thanks for the work that you do, so that we can be a small part of it.

Three or four times each year Kioko and the staff at AGSR staff come up from Nairobi to visit our orphanage.  They bring food, clothing and their friendship.  They are powerful Kenyan mentors for our children and offer them inspiration and role models to aspire to become!
