2017 Winter Update from Howie Makofsky, Director of Kaya’s Kids, Inc.


As we prepare to celebrate Christmas early next week, we want to thank all of you who have prayed for, encouraged and donated financially to the Paradise Orphanage this past year. With your help and God’s provision, we have seen: 1. The completion of the primary school (plus we added two more teachers); 2. Construction of the wall for the new high school; 3. A new dug well on the high school property; 4. The submission of an application for a second nonprofit (Kaya’s Kids Canada); 5. Plans for a new computer lab based on a generous $15,000.00 donation, and 6. The continued progress made on the documentary, Stone by Stone – The Building of the Paradise Orphanage by the Canadian filmmaker Elisabeth Gimber and her crew (Elisabeth, Mark and Robert spent two weeks this past October filming at the orphanage and had an amazing time). Please visit: Stone By Stone – the documentary for more information. What a year! Thank you all so much!!!

If you’re looking to get behind a Christmas project with your family, we’ve provided information here for our 2017 Comfort and Joy Campaign. Think of our kids, all 120 of them, sleeping on a real bed. We need just 60 more and as Carla Veitch would say, “We can do this!” We know you’re busy, so we’ll end it here. Enjoy!

Warm regards,
Howard & Frances Makofsky
