Dear Friends, We extend our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support. In January 2024, we continued our mission to provide quality primary education and support the well-being of the destitute in our communities here in Mombasa Kenya. A report from Star of Hope Kenya.

Our School Feeding Program remained a cornerstone of our efforts, ensuring daily nourishment for 1200 children and 12 youths. This sustained the vital 10 o'clock porridge and 12-noon lunch, contributing significantly to the well-being and focus of the beneficiaries.

Self-sustainability projects showcased continued success. The vegetable farm in Mikindani flourished, yielding produce for both the feeding program and local sale, thereby supporting income generation.
