Service to humanity can be challenging, Prayerkeeps us positive, calls to mind the mission behind the money and reconcilesmisunderstandings. It overcomes fear inthose who ask and softens the hearts of those who give. This is why we believe prayer is an integralpart of success and kindly ask the Kenya Pipeline to partner with us intransforming the lives of the Kenyan children
HUMBLE HEARTS SCHOOL
This is year started well our secondary kids who sat for their final examination last year got their results back and the performance was very good, this year we have 24 other sitting for final exams that will help them get a chance in the university come next year, the biggest challenge is the registration money which many are not able to pay, each student is supposed to pay 10,000 ksh we have been able to raise 5000 ksh for each and are now calling for your support to help us in raising the remaining money so that this children will not miss out on their exams, your prayers and support will be highly appreciated.
When our students recieved their results this year they went into the street singing and dancing the next day 20 mothers brought their kid to school, let us all join hands to keep the fire of education that transforms burning.
