Our first children?s homestead and learning center recently opened in Kenya at the beginning of 2007. There are over 1 million orphans in Kenya due to HIV/Aids alone. In the general area of our children?s home, there are over 10,000 children who have lost their parents. It often weighs heavy on our hearts that our current homestead will only be able to offer 120 children a safe, nurturing place to live and learn. Our board of directors and volunteers are not paid for their time. Each of us is passionate about our work here. Board members pay all U.S. operational expenses out of their own pockets, (i.e. website hosting, photo processing, accounting fees, postage, telephone charges, etc.) We want to assure you that, with the exception of a small amount of fundraising costs, your contributions go directly to support the Ngatha International Children?s Homestead and Learning Center in Ngamini Village. Never imagine, even for a moment, that helping to change the life of ONE person is a futile endeavor. Indeed, it might be one of the few feasible solutions to abject povery in the world today.|
