    Growing them Strong
    By - Beverly Gilbert Stone - Director
    Growing up strong! Expanding Opportunities is so pleased with the way the children in our children’s home are growing! The sound of happy singing children fills the compound.

    Changes
    By - Beverly Gilbert Stone - Director
    Change is inevitable.  This one has been one of the best! The public school where our children attend has become increasingly crowded.  The children who come to our Children's Home often have spotty educational histories.  Being placed in a class of 60 students, the teacher cannot meet their needs and fill in...

    Meet Joshua Ndugu
    By - Beverly Gilbert Stone - Project Leader
    Joshua Ndugu was the only one of the primary school children at JWHS without a sponsor in 2011. He handled it well and we love him but there was that empty spot that wishes for his own sponsor. Then an anonymous donor on Global Giving began giving a recurring donation.  We elected to use it as a half sponsorship for...
