The Diocese of Bethlehem supports (through $275 scholarships), 20 students in Kajo Keji: Ten high school students (eight girls and two boys), one seminarian, one orphan and one child in each primary school. Thank you notes (uncorrected for grammar and spelling) from the older students may be downloaded below.

For the third year, our parishes and families are asked to support Kajo Keji by purchasing Christmas gifts for their students and clergy. This year, many gifts return with an added emphasis on the girls and women (Girl's volleyball uniforms, sewing machines for each school, material for the Women's Tailoring Training Center). Our scholarships support 20 students and include this year extra funds for shoes and books. Goats and fruit trees will help schools and parishes earn extra income. Thank you for your support and please feel free to call me if you have any questions.

A scholarship is $250 and an extra $25 buys a uniform, shoes and some text books.  An ad for all the gifts appears also in December's Diocesan Life. If you haven't yet received the paper, you may download it here, and see page 3.
