Within the following correspondence dated Nov. 29, 2012 Bro. Gregory has reported great progress in the Marist Schools and the development of acres of fallow land into arable land around the campuses. All of these are very rewarding to SFXBOYS around the world and are encouraging us to continue to help our Marist Brothers in Kenya, Africa.  Please invite all your SFX buddies anywhere around the world to view this web page! (Just tell them to search the Internet for "SFXBOYS" !)

No matter how spectacular or modest our donations, we want to show our gratitude and support to the Marist Brothers for their life-long dedication to education, especially in China, and also around the world.  Bro. Gregory has also graciously and enthusiastically accepted, in his previous letter, our humble request to use all SFXBOYS donations to set up a SFXBOYS Scholarships fund for the Marist Schools in Kenya!  We earnestly want to make this a lasting legacy !  The Marist Brothers have always been an inspiration to us. By doing our part in a small way, we can carry on our own missionary work, becoming their Co-Missionaries !  

We encourage each SFXBOYS chapter to organize their own campaign and, regardless of the methods of collection and reporting the contributions, 100% of your donations will go directly to Bro. Gregory.  If you do not have specific instructions from your chapter, you may send your donations to SFXBOYS Worldwide (see instructions below), and the SFXBOYS Webmaster will email you a confirmation and list your name (or pseudonym, if requested) on our Worldwide Donors List, with the dollar value hidden. A running total will be displayed. 

Please refer to further details below (How You Can Help) after reading the letter from Bro. Gregory.

To: Bosco Ho (SFXBOYS Webmaster)

Dear Bosco, 

First, let me say ?WELCOME BACK?as you have returned from Hong Kong to the Golden State of California. 

Next, accept my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude for your faithful and generous commitment and dedication as webmaster of the SFX OLD BOYS in support of our Marist-Missionary endeavors in this remote and neglected region of Kenya, East Africa.

Through your website you have made a substantial contribution in support of our endeavors of the theme of 2012:

TOWARDS VIABILITY THROUGH FOOD SECURITY.

 Let me highlight some marked progress towards this realization in our  two school communities, Bishop Mugendi Secondary School (BMSS) and our technical School St.Martin Youth Training Centre (YTC) on the island of Mfangano, Lake Victoria:

  • In BMSS we transformed ten acres of fallow land into arable land on which we harvested over two hundred bags of maize at seventy kg each this year. 
  •  A team of our apprentices of YTC, with their Instructors, crossed the lake weekly to carry  on renovation and construction work to cope with the increased intake of students, including more than 50 girls, who may otherwise roam the bush and be up to little good.
     
  • Through the SFX OLD BOYS SCHOLARSHIP FUND you enabled both, YTC and BMSS,  to feed and sustain needy and deserving youngsters (a number of them full orphans) to continue their schooling and training.

We few Marist Brothers, together with our committed co- workers are strengthened and encouraged to persevere in our Marist Mission to cater above all for the most needy youths in our troubled world, thus living the charism of St. Marcellin, our founder.

MISSIONARIES need CO-MISSIONARIES.  WE are in this together and YOU are our CO-MISSIONARIES. Together we share and contribute in our distinct manner to give HOPE and VISION to the hopeless through EDUCATION and integral human FORMATION to empower many

?TO TAKE THEIR LIVES INTO THEIR OWN HANDS?/i>

 Dear Bosco, and ALL SFX OLD BOYS and your FAMILIES, thank you for your good will, your loyalty and unbounded generosity.  We keep you in our life and entrust you to the LORD in our daily prayerful remembrance. 

Your Brother Gregory (Hans) and all at YTC

                                                            How you can help 

Please make a generous donation, in US currency, if possible, to sponsor a scholarship or to contribute to the fund. To save time and banking fees for Bro. Gregory, we will pool all donations as much as possible - by country / worldwide. Since one international SWIFT bank transfer to Africa could cost USD $60.00, checks or online banking may be less costly. If you send in a group donation, please keep records and send in donor names.  Please try to contribute by end of Feb. 2013 (to accommodate alumni in HK). We will transfer a lump sum directly to Bro. Gregory Marist's bank account in early March 2013 (a month later than last year).

A Challenge
has been given by a SFXBOYS (VAN) K-1960's, to get eight (8)  other SFXBOYS to donate USD $1,000 each, and he will donate $2,000 to make up a handsome amount of $10,000 for Bro. Gregory! 
So far five (5) donors have already donated USD $1,000 each !!!
