With a relatively short time, the Timothy Project: Valor Kenya 2016 request that came in at the end of May and the fulfillment before leaving mid-June had some wonderful results. We share just a brief part of the story in this Timothy Project: Valor Kenya 2016 Final Update. You can follow along with their travel log for the team of Valor students and teachers, here. Team Lead, Greg Blake, had this to share in a final update from the team (along with the pictures below):
First, let me tell what a huge blessing the jersey’s and soccer balls were to the students in Kenya. We distributed the equipment to three different locations: the Masai School at Oldonyonyoke, the youth center at the Kanwangare slum in Nairobi, and the Children of Hope orphanage in Kitale. In all instances, the students were very excited to have the new equipment. Probably most impactful was the Masai school. They have a league soccer team and are really enthusiastic about the game, but had very old or no jersey’s and very old soccer balls. They quickly donned the new gear and we had a great match with our own students. The leaders of the school expressed many times how very grateful they are and what a huge blessing the equipment is to their program and team.
