As Thanksgiving approaches, we’re thankful that our students are able to be home with their families for the holidays. They’ll be back in January and promote to the next grade level. We miss their little faces, but in the mean time, we have some exciting plans for the end of November/beginning of December.

Our Kenyan teachers and staff are coming to America! While here, they’ll participate in training and staff development, and have the opportunity to connect with the Canopy Life family stateside. This is the first time our Kenyan staff has traveled to America together, and something we believe will be a rare occurrence.

That’s why we want to give you the chance to say hello and get to know them while they’re here! On December 4, we have two opportunities for you to engage with Canopy family from both sides of the globe.

4:00–5:30 p.m.BigStuf, 31 Church Street, Alpharetta GA 30009

We’re hosting a special event just for Sponsors! This will be a great opportunity for Sponsors to meet one another and hear about their students. We’re so excited for our Sponsor Families to hear about their students directly from the kids’ teachers and home staff. If you are considering being a Sponsor in the upcoming school year, you’re invited to join us for this event. You’ll get to meet current Sponsors and hear what they love most about Canopy Life Sponsorship.

This event is free, but we’d love for you to let us know you’re coming by emailing us at sponsorship@canopylife.org.

7:00–8:30 p.m. Church Street Cottage, 37 Church Street, Alpharetta GA 30009

Following the Sponsor-Only Gathering, there will be an evening of worship and conversation. Our Kenyan staff will lead us in worship and tell stories of what God is doing at Canopy Life Academy. It will be a sweet time of fellowship and celebration of God’s faithfulness.

Tickets are $15 each and available online. Heavy hors d’oeuvres, desserts and wine will be served.
