In the fall of 2009 Hilltop's Director and teachers became aware of a new preschool planning to open its doors on Jan. 4, 2010 in Mombasa, Kenya. This new school was being built to serve very poor families living in the mini-slum area of Mombasa called Likoni. Their director hoped to offer a few children free tuition.

We learned that for $12 a month (times 10 months) a child can attend preschool in Kenya! So began our partnership with Hilltop School, Africa. We not only pledged sponsorships, but also loaned them our name, sent them
t-shirts and helped them write their policies. 

You will hear us refer to this school as Hilltop, Likoni or Hilltop, Mombasa or Hilltop, Kenya and maybe even Hilltop, Africa. All are correct: Likoni is part of the city of Mombasa. Mombasa is located on the coast of the country Kenya which lies on the East coast of the continent of Africa. Our children are learning a lot of Geography here at Hilltop, and more importantly they are learning to meet needs of those less fortunate than themselves. 

Together Hilltop USA staff and families plus friends from West Church sponsored over 40 children during 2010.We hope to do this this every year with your help. If your family would like to sponsor a preschool child's tuition in Kenya, please speak to our Director, Tammi McGrath for details. In early March of each year, your sponsored child's name and photo will be sent from Kenya so that you can remember to pray (and give) for him/her all year!

Thank you for helping us help the "least of these!"
