Children in our community who are beneficiaries to Karin's Child sponsorship program had a party today to cerebrate their accomplished milestones. This is a program that helps the vulnerable children attain education by paying their tuition and other school necessities. At KCIU, we value the importance of early childhood development in our community. We believe that the emotional, social and physical development of young children has a direct effect on their overall development and on the adult they will become. That is why understanding the need to invest in very young children is so important, so as to maximize their future well-being.
