Neema Children's Home

Neema Children’s Home was established in 2005 by Joshua and Miriam Mbithi to care for HIV+ affected and infected children. There are numerous effects of HIV/AIDS on Kenyan society and more so the stability of families, however the obvious victims are the helpless children.
It is with this concern in mind coupled with God’s call that the Mbithis set up Neema Children’s Home. Neema is a Kiswahili word meaning “Grace”.

BOR-B Bonga Boarding Houses

The Bonga Boarding Houses - Project Officer Emma Lewis

These houses help to support students from rural areas by providing them with accommodation, so they can live in Bonga, Ethiopia to attend high school or further education.
 
 
                                                           

Your sponsorship will help to feed, clothe, educate, provide school books and medical costs to vulnerable children who would not have the opportunity of an education had they remained in their villages, as their families are very poor and schooling finishes at grade 6, therefore they cannot afford to send them to school in Bonga.

Children in this program are aged from pre-school to teens, and are often in orphan siblings groups or in homes where poverty and illness are seriously limiting the capacity of parents to provide adequately for them, leaving the children at risk of malnutrition and illiteracy.

LIW-school - Liwan and Dekia Housing

A Boarding House for Liwan Students in Dekia  

Given the Liwan School only goes up to grade 4, those reaching higher grades come to Dekia to continue their schooling. There are now about 24 children – including 6 girls – in Dekia attending grade 5, 6 and 7. This is very exciting, given no one in their village had ever reached this level of schooling, and I hope that in years to come, these students will be able to help their village through being teachers, nurses, engineers and other skills so that Liwan can become a self sufficient thriving community.

LHP - Liwan - Health Post

A Health-Post for Liwan   

Liwan is a very remote village that WFA has been involved in over the past 5 years after we were approached with a plea to help provide a school and clean water for the village. The village is home to the Shuro people who have been marginalised and isolated, with no shared language with other cultural groups. The whole village was illiterate and they had no clean water, no toilets, no reliable food source and lacked health care and other basic services. Please see the following website for further information:

Kenya Testimony Faith Homes

Kenya Testimony Faith Homes

Situated in Eldoret, Kenya, Testimony Faith Homes is currently comprised of three homes for children ages 3-17 and two   hostels for girls and boys aged over 18. Each house has an employed set of parents who care for the children in their care as they would their own family. Each house has approximately 40 children in the family from various tribal backgrounds and different circumstances as to how they became orphaned. Testimony School is located on the compound along with boarding facilities for both primary and secondary students as well as a Day Care Centre. The school’s financial governance is separated from that of the homes and it does not contribute to the homes financially. However, the school does provide the children of Testimony Homes with free education and opportunities that the children would otherwise not receive.

DOL - Jimma Housing

Project Goals

 

The projects in Jimma support a multifaceted and holistic approach for the poor provided by the Daughters of Charity in this area, including a Leprosy Community School Project, a housing project, sponsorship of children in the leprosy communities and in the broader community, and assistance to those with medical needs when required. Through the Lazarist Priests, WFA supports a project providing training, mentoring and equipment to set up groups of ten youths in small business projects. In Jimma, WFA also provides education for blind children. The aim of these projects is to provide support for vulnerable individuals and communities in ways which empower them with education and training, alongside assistance to improve their living standards (by providing access to housing and assistance with access to medical care). The changes visible in the lives of individuals and in the communities over the past seven years are wonderful to witness.
