Fund a project

The needs in Africa are very great indeed; the total number of orphans in Africa is an estimated 53.1 million, which is greater than the total number of children in Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Canada and Sweden combined! Of those orphaned children, 30% lost parents to the AIDS epidemic.

At first glance one is tempted to think, how is it possible to make a difference with statistics like these, but here at EAMO we sure do make a difference – one child at a time! That’s why we must continue to grow and be able to help more and more children.

This is where you come in; there are always a number of projects going on at EAMO. Project funding is an extremely important component to our continued growth. As our child sponsorship funds and other donations go directly into meeting the demands of our monthly budget, we rely on the generosity of those who also want to help with EAMO Projects.

Below is a list of past and present projects.

If you would like to know more about any of our projects, please write directly to ralph@eamo.co.ke When funding any EAMO project, or a specific project, just let us know the details and by all means use the banking information from the links below in Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF format.

One of our volunteers, Valerie May, located in Sydney has taken pity on our half completed shell of a library and is attempting to raise the $12,000 required to complete it and bring it to the hive of reading activity it was always meant to be! The orphanage school hasn’t had the benefit of a library until this time and we are looking forward to its completion. Reading is such an important part of literacy and the library will be a real asset to the school.
