Education for Life Society Canada
Over the last 10 years, a desire to support the work of Education for Life has been growing in Canada. Through this society Canadians will be able to have a much greater impact in the lives of Kenyan Children.
It all started with a chance meeting in Kenya in the Summer of 2005. A young adult from Edmonton met someone from Education for Life on the street in Likoni. Their conversation led to Jane and Glyn’s sister and brother in law moving to Edmonton.
Jane and Glyn started visiting their family in Edmonton and news of what they were doing at Tumaini School and Children’s Home through Education for Life got around to different people. As Jane and Glyn continued to come to Edmonton for visits, relationships developed and more people became interested in supporting the work being done by Education for Life in Kenya.
In 2012 a team of 8 people from Calvary Community Church partnered with the Emmanuel Foundation and went to Kenya to install a playground which has blessed the school, children’s home and the entire community. This team was excited after coming back and seeing the impact that Education for Life was having on the children and the community and so more people have expressed their desire to participate in the work in Kenya.
After hearing about the work at Education for Life in Kenya, Marianne, Jen, Connie, Kathryn, Dennis and Rob chose to form the Education for Life Society Canada. Through presentations and both online and in person fundraising events, they strove to provide funding for children to be in school. Education for Life Society Canada members have visited Kenya twice and hope to return as often as possible. Currently, Marianne, Kim, Connie, Kathryn and Nathan are working together to make sure the opportunities being afforded the children in Kenya can continue.
