Give a gift
You can give a gift to your sponsor child, by going to our donate page and simply fill out the form, please leave in the description for who the gift you would like to give, and send the price of based on the value of the gift. Shortly after our social workers will buy the gift in a local shop and the child will be able to receive the gift from you.
Contribute in our Christmas gift program
If you would like to give your sponsor child a Christmas gift, NLAI encourages you to donate to the joint Christmas gift pool, in order that all children can get a Christmas gift and in that way prevent creating jealousy amongst the children.
Every Christmas on the last day of the term all the students from the New Life Africa School and the New Life Africa Tumaini Nursery School as well as their relatives all join for an end of year Christmas celebration. At the celebration the children perform songs, sketches, the nativity play etc. and food is served to all of the 1200-1500 attendants. All 650 students and the approx. 90 staff receive a gift e.g. books, toys or towels. All relatives also receive a small gift e.g. a bag of sugar or flour.
NLAI works amongst the poorest people in Nakuru. For them it is difficult to afford even sugar for their tea.
Every year on 25 December a Christmas celebration event is held for the children and youth from the Children’s Home, the women from the crisis centre at Filadelfia, and for the youth who once lived in the Home. It is always a festive day, where everyone enjoys being together around the good food and the fun performances. At the event everyone is given several gifts such as books, toys, pillows, bed sheets, etc.

If you would like to send a Christmas card to your sponsor child, please send it to the Kenyan post address available here. If you do not want to make a donation to the joint Christmas gift pool, but instead have a big desire to give a gift specifically to your sponsor child, then that is also possible. It is not uncommon for posted mail in Kenya to get lost in the system and commonly when collecting packages from the post office, charges and customs duties have to be paid. You are therefore instead encouraged to make a payment to NLAI and earmark it “NLAI Christmas gift for file no. xxxx”. NLAI will then make sure to buy a gift for your sponsor child with the payment made.
