The children at the Galilee School in Nairobi, Kenya are living in some of the worst slums in the world.  Most do not have toilets, more then one set of clothes, electricity, or running water. Some receive their only meal of the day from Galilee. For these students, high school is the biggest hope they have to leave the slums.

Aura's House
, in conjunction with the 501(c)(3) organization, Kenya Kids in Need together aim to raise $5000 for desks, books, and lab equipment for a newly built high school. Without these items, students cannot continue their studies. Our goal is to raise these funds by December, 2006 so the students can start their term in January of 2007.

Galilee Highschool

This highschool add-on to the Galilee School was recently completed in
2006. Unfortunately, Form 3 students cannot start a new term until they have desks, books, and lab equipment.

There are over 1,000 students in total in the cramped classrooms of the Galilee School. By helping the Form 3 class get equipment and supplies, the younger children will also benefit and can continue their educations as well.

Kenya Kids in Need is a California 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to Galilee School. Both Aura’s House and Kenya Kids in Need are 100% volunteer organizations. 100% of the money donated, after Paypal fees, will go to the school for our project of desks, books, and lab equipment. 

This website was founded by Kristen Palana, Aura Hernandez's sponsor through the top rated charity, Children International.

Anastasia Yecke
of Miami, Florida and Mike Epler of Simi Valley, CA. are partners at the site and main collaborators and fundraisers.
