More Info

The Early Learning Goals cover the main areas of education without being subject driven. These areas include 

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Language, literacy and communication
  • Expressive and Aesthetic Development
  • Bilingualism and Multi-cultural Understanding
  • Mathematical development
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world
  • Physical development
  • Creative development

We feel it's time to lay the groundwork for one of the biggest challenges for Dago community, providing opportunities for young children to develop skills and to prepare them for primary school;  we see this program as an opportunity to help build a strong foundation for greater success in their lives through education.

To sponsor a child costs $300 a year to support a child for 42 weeks of school in Kenya. Payments may be broken down into quarterly or monthly installments.

The money goes to the following areas of need:

  • To provide class supplies and materials for 100 children
  • To pay 3 teachers for children 4 - 7 years of age  
  • To maintain the Early Childhood Development building.
  •  To provide uniforms for all students.

On Saturday, December 2, 2017, Aldersgate UMC and Friends of Daog, Inc. will hold its yearly “Karibu Kenya.” This event, held in the Family Life Center of the church, includes:
• Traditional Kenyan meal (cooked by Kenyans living in Evansville)
• Sale of African crafts

All of the proceeds this year will go toward one of our projects, an Early Childhood Development program in Dago Village. We offer child sponsorships, which include school fees, uniforms, shoes, 2 hot meals a day, and teachers’ salaries for these preschool children. Through this program they receive a head start before taking the exam that lets them attend the local primary school in Dago village.
