Good Samaritan Education Fund for AIDS orphans


In the summer of 2001, Pacho Velez and Randy Bell traveled to Kenya and shot the film “Orphans of Mathare,” about a group of orphans growing up at the Good Samaritan Children's Home. In the summer of 2003, Randy returned to Kenya to continue to film the lives of the children at Good Samaritan to make a series of films about growing up an orphan in the slums of Nairobi.  More information can be found at www.orphansofmathare.com/mathareproject/


You can help send children from Good Samaritan to school by making a tax-deductible contribution to the Good Samaritan Education Fund. A $300 donation sends a child to school for one year.  To donate on-line with your credit card, visit:




In the Additional Comment box write "Good Samaritan Education Fund.”  To pay by check, make it out to "Global Alliance for Africa" and in the memo write "Good Samaritan Education Fund." Include a note mentioning that you would  like your donation to go to the Good Samaritan Education Fund, and mail the check and note to:


The Executive Director
