Hope for Life Kenya is an NGO whose purpose is to stimulate sustainable community transformation through healed relationships. This ministry focuses on the physical, spiritual and emotional care and development of children and older youth who have been victimized by HIV-AIDS and poverty. The organization is led by founder Josephine Kiarii and is located in Kiungururia—just outside the city of Nakuru.
Hope for Life Kenya (HFLK) is committed to maintaining the strong family bonds that characterize Kenyan society and so to that end the 135 children continue to live with their family guardians. Seven days a week, however, the center supplements with a healthy hot lunch along with loving, Christ-centered teaching and counseling. Additionally, the center provides tutoring, development of gifts and leadership, mentoring, Christian Rite of Passage (CROP) and a Sunday afternoon fellowship.
For the older youth, HFLK offers regular training in life skills as well as vocational courses. The guardians meet monthly for support, to cook for the children and to participate in microcredit activities that boost their income.
Since 2001 Hope for Life Kenya has been launching orphans and vulnerable children into society by giving them a foundation of love, dignity, and hope. Their primary goal has been to help children find their hope in a relationship with Jesus Christ, grow in their faith and character, and be useful in Christ’s Kingdom.
Their greatest financial need is for school fees for the 74 teenagers in junior and senior high school. Would you consider helping to educate one of these high school students? You may sponsor a teen for any amount. School fees average $1800/year per student. This year Hope for Life must raise a staggering $136,000 to give these students an education, their biggest hope of breaking out of poverty and being able to provide for themselves in the future.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
