100% of profits support orphan education in Kenya

There is no "I" in Team, but there is TEA

There is no "I" in Team, but there is TEA

It is entirely possible you may have missed the NBC coverage of the Ajiri Winter Olympics. It was broadcast sporadically and only when the camerawoman was not competing in the egg toss or three-legged race. While you may have missed the live coverage, the results are mostly accounted for. Eggs were dropped. Marshmallow towers were built. Relay races were won.

Here are the final standings:
Team Italy and Team Kenya tied for the Gold 
Team Norway took the Silver Medal
And Team USA trailed behind with the Bronze

But, of course, this is the Ajiri Olympics, so everyone got a medal. Everyone marched in the opening ceremony (complete with a torch), cheered for their teammates, and made new friends. The Ajiri Olympics are an annual event--a time for our new students to bond with the other Ajiri students.   
                   

At Ajiri we aim to provide more than an education, we aim to provide a childhood. 

And all of you--our customers--you aren't just on the sidelines, you are in the game. Without you there would be no Ajiri Olympics, let alone Ajiri students. It is your purchase that sends these students to school. And it is your support that keeps these students in school all the way to the finish line.

Motherhood and Jam Sandwiches
Motherhood and Jam Sandwiches

by Kate Holby April 28, 2022

On a recent trip to Kenya I met with old family friends in Nairobi. It was the first trip I had taken since having my son in July 2020. Mrs. Ambundo, who is 85 years old and a mother to four children, took me into her arms and said "welcome to the other side." She didn't mean welcome to  "the other side" of the world. She meant welcome to the world of motherhood.
