Invest in the Women & Children of Kenya
"Missions is the joyous work of informing the world that it is loved."
Vocational Center/Safe House
A new and exciting next step in creating stability and sustainability for our women in Thika, Kenya!
After months of prayers, searching, gracious donors, and even disappointments, we have at last reached triumph! We are moving forward on an expansion of the church grounds that will be a spacious, dedicated space for the women!
Following the completion of this project we will focus on developing our new area in Kitengela, Kenya.
Vocational Training & Micro-Finance
Many of the women – especially in areas outside of Nairobi – are the bread winners of their families. This is not usually by choice, but by necessity. The women work long hours in fields (during harvest times), construction sites, or as a maid. Rural Kenyan women travel long distances into the city and stand on busy corners hoping to be picked up for day labor for as little as $5 per week. (A bar of soap costs over $2.) The vocational training program offers the women the skills, resources, and confidence needed to succeed, and to break the cycle of extreme poverty. This impacts their children, households and community in a powerful way!
Your donations into the vocational training fund provide: More in-depth vocational training, teachers/instructors, supplies, resources, and micro-finance capital.
Nearly a third of the women in our Not Without Hope program suffer from some type of chronic condition, injury, or illness. Treatments and resources are available, but due to extreme poverty they are unable to access them. This not only worsens their condition, but makes it difficult - if not impossible - for many of them to continue in vocational training, church, work, and other normal activities.
Examples of medical care:
* Medications for disease and illness
* Treatment for injuries
* Treatment therapies for chronic conditions
*Education for HIV/AIDS, diabetes
* Prenatal and postpartum care
* Vision care
* Hospital care
This level of support will be truly life-changing to the women, and by virtue, their families! We appreciate your prayers and partnership with us through giving, as we continue to encourage, empower, and equip the women of Kenya!
