Providing living and educational expenses for Peter Anyangu and Denice Omar.
Join a small group who are providing the opportunities these boys need to grow into productive Kenyan citizens. Peter and Denice were rescued from Mboxini when they were 13 years old. They are now the equivalent of juniors in HS. Denice was #2 in his class last term and Peter is doing well also!
The Dickson Children’s Centre:
30 children from infant to 18 yrs are provided with food, clothing, shelter, medical care, and a loving spiritual environment.
The Onesimus Boy’s Centre:
25 boys from the ages of 13 to 18 have been rescued from the streets where they are referred to as Chokora, “garbage eaters”. Classrooms, teachers, and counselors are provided while they are rehabilitated from drugs and back into civilized living before being reintroduced to mainstream schooling. They are provided with loving spiritual care, recreation, clothing, medical, food and shelter.
Ushirika School, Kibera
Kibera may be the largest slum in Africa. One million people live on just 500 acres of land. Ushirika school was founded by David Kitavi on the very spot where he was raised by his father in the slum.
Ushiriaka school provides 200 orphans and vulnerable children with education and school uniforms, textbooks, stationery and food that enables them to study.Our challenge to find a common vision Our hope and strength to work together Our resolve to make a difference for the children of Kibera ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Eyeglasses for Ushirika School children:
An eye checkup takes five minutes and a pair of glasses cost $5. An Eyeglasses kit can be purchased for around $2,000. This would provide 400 metal-framed pairs of eyeglasses in three different sizes, four positive and four negative optical powers. It is our plan to enlist the help of a local optomotrist to help with screening and fitting the children in Kibera slum so they can have a more productive school experience.
Blessed Camp: Ministering to a village with a legacy of leprosy.
Although leprosy is no longer an active disease, those who have suffered from it are still ostracized in the community. The result is that those who were previously afflicted with this disease now live together with their families in a small village just outside of Mombasa and are relegated to begging for their existence. Peter Ochiel established his ministry to care for these people in 2010 and has been able to build a church, school and medical clinic for the citizens. The children are fed daily in school and the elderly are cared for as well with meals delivered to their homes. A small farm has been established and many of the villagers have converted to Christianity under Peter’s leadership. A Bridge to Kenya, Inc. is working to provide eyeglasses for the children and other inhabitants of this village.
