December Student Retreat

The workshops and retreat held in Kakamega in December for Crossroads Springs Africa and Friends of Kakamega sponsored students were a great success.  Facilitated topics at the retreat included life skills, relationships, health, substance abuse, HIV, leadership and integrity. There were games, contests awards and a talent night. 230 students attended. We hear that the students and the administrators want to do more of these sessions!  We look forward to learning more soon.

An Evening of Conversation and Gratitude

Ida StudentGuests joined the CSA board and met and shared ideas with Ida Nelson, visiting Kenyan administrator of our Crossroads Springs Africa Student Education program in Kenya recently. Pictures above were taken at the event. Thank you to the Elm Street Bakery for making the event possible.

Ida is the the special man who knows each child and mentors them to be their best. He is our administrator in Kakamega, Western Kenya; he leads our team on the ground that includes an experienced social worker, high school counselor, and accountant. Join in conversation with Ida and the Crossroads Springs Africa board members and associates whose goal is to make high school and post high school education possible for eager youth so they can have jobs and lead successful lives of independence and service.
