 "SARAH EHRLICH, NEW YORK RESIDENT and Jill Zarin of The Real Housewives of New York City FOCUS ON GIVING WHEN

Kisii, Kenya - It may be thousands of miles from the glamour of 5TH Avenue or anything star-studded, yet celebrity and socialite Jill Zarin of The Real Housewives of New York City and Help for Orphans International’s Sarah Ehrlich made it their business to help turn the dreams of orphans into reality.

The new Help for Orphans International School Kisii Kenya, which supports 150 children, opened last month. The school opened despite the bad American economy that is effecting every country in the world, including Kenya. 

Sarah Ehrlich and part of her team from Help for Orphans International attended the event.  The event was filled with African singers and dancers. A large festival featuring entertainment from local musicians and home-grown cuisine, including two traditionally-prepared cows, helped celebrate the grand opening. More than 400 people attended this ribbon-cutting ceremony and festivities. 

“This is a rare event in the Western part of Kenya, says Mageti. “We’re so fortunate, especially in these difficult financial times in America, to have financial support from Help for Orphans International in building this school. So many people were moved by our event and what Sarah Ehrlich and Jill Zarin did here. Many of those people including our Chief SAMSON R. ONSERIO and many other government officials shared those feelings during the ceremony.  Ehrlich worked with Zarin on two summer fundraisers in the Hamptons which completely paid for this new school for orphaned children.


“During this time it is near impossible to raise funds for charity. We are just keeping our chin up and promoting our butts off.  It’s the only thing that works in horrific financial times like this.

“We’ve seen the trend of celebrities like Madonna, Oprah, Bono, Angelia Jolie and Brad Pitt successfully help the people of Africa. In recent good times we’ve seen everyday people contribute to causes outside of America. I have seen first hand this help positively impact the future for so many kids who live such an uncertain life. I just hope it continues while Americans are now suffering and have uncertainty for themselves and their families.

We help create jobs for orphans in other countries through farming. Times are so tough right now in America I might have to stop working with orphans in 3rd world countries and start teaching ex-bankers in America farming. But all kidding aside, we are in need of donations. The children we work with are 100 times worse off than the poorest American children regardless of the stock market  says Ehrlich.

Along with this recently built school, Help for Orphans International has renovated other schools for orphans, provided a systematic reading and study skills program, donated hundreds of textbooks, vaccinations, clean water and even cows to give the children milk to drink and sell.

About Help for Orphans International:  Help for Orphans International ( is a non-profit organization which provides superior education facilities and materials for orphans around the world. The organization’s overall purpose is to elevate the well-being of orphans and empower them to succeed in whatever endeavor they choose. Along the way, Help for Orphans provides food, clean water, vaccinations, clothing and other needed supplies in order to establish an effective learning environment. Having already begun building schools and assisting orphanages in India, South America, Uganda and Kenya, Help for Orphans International intends to expand as rapidly as possible in order to meet the needs of as many orphans as possible.
