2014 year end financial summary

Soar-Kenya gives 100% of what is donated directly into the projects we support in Kenya. No one takes any operational pay.The following is a summary of the amount donated and to whom it went.
1.Monica-She owns and operates a primary school in Eldoret. Monica teaches around 240 students now and provides a food program. Monica received 2029.99 in assistance last year. She would like to buy the building she is operating out of. It is in very rough shape and if she owned it we would work toward improving the conditions and building a kitchen. The cost to purchase what she is now renting is 20 thousand dollars.
2. Reginia and Nelly. They received 2160.00 in 2014. The donation was received via Nelly and after her death I sent to Reginia to take care of immediate needs. Reginia runs her own small orphanage and we can trust her to make the right decisions on where the money donated would do the most good. It was a difficult time and we are grateful to know someone like Reginia that we could trust with the money we sent.We sponsored Reginia by purchasing the formula for her babies and buying her new tires for her car. We appreciate her help. Nelly left behind 44 orphans and the needs are great. Hope Grafted In , anothe NGO supports their school fees however there are many great needs and donations are always needed. Nelly’s husband manages the orphanage and seems to be managing ok. Nelly is missed by everyone.
3. Harrison runs a school and small orphange in the Homa Bay area. Harrison and his wife Irene received 1970.00 in help last year. The money went initially for seed and then we helped purchase food because of the severe drought they had. Harrison and Irene have many needs and few sponsors. They are in an area that often has drought and so the needs to feed so many are great. In the past we have assisted with land purchase, beds,plantings,food,uniforms electricity. They are currently facing drought again and requesting help to buy food.
4. James, director of Soar Academy received 12,144.49. This money was used to help sponsor teachers, buy seed, purchase land,finish the kitchen. James does an excellent job with little help. James is building and improving buildings and feeding a large amount of students. We are short 7 thousand dollars on his recent land purchase. This land will eventually have drip line irrigation on it. This will allow for some sustainability as the school grows. James always posts updates of how the students are doing, test placements, etc. James also is responsible for distributing the sanitary napkins for app. 18 schools in the area. Tangus is still working hard doing all the gardening. We are hoping he will be able to build a small house for himself on the recent land purchased which is very close to the school. The new kitchen is completed ,however the second stove is not paid for yet. Soar has the well and can sell the water ,however most of the sales has to be kept in case of needed repairs. The people of this area are just not able to provide school fees. We just strive for sustainability and remain needing donations to keep going.

Phill and his family are living in Kenya. People who donated to Phill via Soar donated 6,470.00. Phill and his family have  used this money to improve things at the international village and do many service projects at a variety of schools in the Nakuru area.

6. Grace a teacher at Soar received 490.00 as a small loan to begin a printing business. We are hoping for her succes and that she will be able to return the loan within 1 year .

7.Anthony received 100.00 from his sponsor Aileen. This money was used for school fees.

Total sent out this year          -25,364.48

Total donations received       -16,444.50

Beginning balance for 2014  -8,658.81

Monica-She runs a school for over 200 students now. She has done a tremendous job with very little donated by us. Soar is hoping to help her purchase the school grounds and begin to improve the conditions there. Monica received 2,029.99 in assistance last year.
James received 12,144.49

Josphat was injured in a car accident. He is the father to the 44 orphaned children that Nellie and him were raising. Haven of Hope is about 500.00 short of funds to purchase a van. Transportation for 44 children would be so much easier if the orphanage had a van.

Wonderful banquet 2013

Soar board members would like to thank everyone who participated or donated to our annual banquet. We put on a wonderful banquet for a free will offering. Everyone had a great time. I will be posting the results soon along with a year end statement. Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I just want to let all our supporters know we are grateful for the support .I have not accessed this web site for over a year so I hope to get current and enter updates daily.
