The children of Compassion CBO school in Nairobi are the beneficiaries of a heart-felt tribute from the friends and family of much-loved Parthenia Adams - ‘Aunty Polly’ - who passed away, age 97, in Detroit, Michigan.
A Living Tribute
Michael Tyson is a loyal supporter of the work of Compassion CBO. He suggested to family and friends that, rather than flowers for the funeral, a living tribute to Aunty Polly would be helping children in Kenya to get a better education.
“As we were putting the details of Aunt Polly’s funeral together I woke up with the thought....Send the funds to Evanston and the kids, instead of flowers.”
“People are asking how I knew about Compassion CBO......people are saying what a great idea........I'm saying 'let's put what few dollars we have here to good work on things we in the States take for granted!' ”
"We were so grateful for the donations, as the school badly needed new desks. The kids are so happy with them. Evanson Njeru"
