District 28 families have supported the Fred Outa Foundation by contributing to Concert for Africa for the past 10 years. The foundation was created by former Westmoor School administrative assistant Sue Vaickauski, after meeting Mr. Outa during a visit to Africa. The foundation and the Concerts for Africa she helped create at District 28 raised $100,000 that was used to build the new girls’ high school.

In the past, a member of the Kenyan parliament, Mr. Fred Outa provides school supplies, food and medicine to more than 500 students of St. Christopher preschool, Spurgeons Academy for grades K-8, and the newly opened St. Esther’s Girls High School through his foundation.

One meal a day. One pencil for school. No electricity or running water at home. Managing life without parents.

Those are just some of the facts of life in the Kibera slum of Kenya that Fred Outa shared with District 28 students during a recent visit.

Joli Fridman and husband, Ruben, along with Kim and Jared Svoboda took up the cause. The Svobodas visited Mr. Outa two years ago at Spurgeon’s Academy. Over the last two years $20,000 was raised to dig a well and bring fresh water to the girls’ high school so it could open.

“As a parent who values education, it’s just an extension of that in helping other kids,” she said. All proceeds directly benefit the students as the foundation is run entirely by volunteers.

This year the fundraiser is ROCKIN JUMP! Come to Rockin' Jump from 1 to 3 p.m. Monday, Jan. 20 for a discounted admission and help raise money for our sister school in Kenya, Spurgeon's Academy.
