Sponsorship- School building- Widows feeding program -Clean water wells - Land Purchase - Business Development
We are happy to announce PLDI have been able to build 2 more classrooms to Redland Junior School thanks to our wonderful donors. Our school is growing which means more children who previously were denied an education due to poverty will now be able to start school and receive the education they have so very much longed for. We would love to continue to give even more children the opportunity to fulfil that dream. The school is in need of desks, chairs and resources.
Land next to Redland Junior School has become available for purchase. The owner has offered it to PLD at a much reduced cost as he loves what George and our team are doing to give children an education in Kenya.
We would love to be able to purchase the land and extend the school as well as build a medical centre and orphanage/safe houses for vulnerable children.
We are praying for the funds $20,000 AUD to be able to purchase this land that would be of enormous benefit to PLD in extending our work to help the widows, children and vulnerable in Kisumu.
One of our passions is to find sponsors for each of the Precious Little Diamond orphans so they have an opportunity to wholesome food, medication, as cholera, malaria, typhoid and other diseases are common sicknesses, warm clothing in the winter and of course, their dream of having an education like other children.
The delight sponsors experience in knowing they are giving their child an education and chance for a better future is so rewarding.
School Feeding Fund
Children going to school in Kenya need to be fed as the parents are often too poor to send food along with them to eat. The kitchen and storeroom have just been built and will provide lunches for the 80+ children going to Redland Junior School.
Each month we have a "Feed the kids Fund" thermometer on our fb and Insta page if you would like to donate to this worthy cause.

Redland Junior School started with 2 classrooms, 6 toilets, 40 students and 2 teachers. With God's favour it has grown to over 100 children, 7 teachers, 6 classrooms and 10 toilets. With the need for many more children to be educated our plan is to build more classrooms and add resources as the funds become available
School Building Program
Feed the Kids Fund - March
Clean water bores
Something very important to the PLD team is to help our Kenyan families become self sufficient which brings a sense of dignity and confidence.
Our big project for this year is to set up a small business which will subsidise school fees, food, funerals, and wages. It will also create jobs for the kids that are too old for the sponsor program.
There are no fuel stations in the area where George lives and those with cars and motorbikes have to travel long distances to get fuel. We will be building a fuel station with a sleepout so it will be manned 24/7
We are excited to begin this project and invite you to join us in investing in the future of these underprivileged children and widows in Kisumu Kenya.
Widow's feeding program
Many of the elderly widows we met are looking after up to 10 small children with no income to support them. PLDI distribute food, blankets, cooking and hygiene
products to ease the burden. We have just set them up with a new Marquee and chairs for an event hire business to become more self sufficient. They are still requiring tables and cooking utensils to complete the business. Your donation toward this would be greatly appreciated.
Having clean water to drink can be easily taken for granted by people living in first world countries but many places around the world including Kisumu Kenya, dirty and contaminated water is all they have access to.
PLDI are delighted to be able to dig water bores that produce clean crystal clear water for the orphans, widows and surrounding community to drink and use for cooking , reducing the risk of Cholera and other water borne diseases. We are needing to purchase a tank to hold the water supply above the well. If you would like to contribute to this project please donate below.
