Your $35 monthly donation for Joyce Waithira will go totally to her education, food, clothing and medical expenses. As you exchange letters, send photos and offer encouragement in Jesus' name, your love will bring hope to this young girl that will last a lifetime.


Many older street orphans are on the brink of despair. They are being pulled in the direction of crime, drugs and prostitution to earn money, find food and maybe a place to lay their heads at night. Your sponsorship may be what helps to steer these older orphans from choosing a dangerous and deadly lifestyle.

Joyce is in grade 7 in Matathia primary school

Hello, my name is Joyce Waithira

I am 13 years old. I have been in the DOWM Program for one year. I am so excited to say that God has not provided a sponsor for me. I am blessed and thankful to be living with my father. Through DOWM and the wonderful widows and orphans in the program, a house was built for my father and I in 2018. Friends in the US raised funds for the money needed for the materials for the house and then the neighbors in our community came together and in three days helped my father build our new home. For the first time in my life I have a bedroom of my own! Thank you to everyone, both in the US and Kenya who have helped us so very much. Thank you for giving us hope and a reason to smile again.
