Helpers at the home

We have been graced by two helpers at the home this week:

Aileen a 2nd year student at Chuka University volunteered to help at the home for the weekend. She is so good with the kids, she has helped mama Rose clean utensils, cook for the kids, sort rice and other cereals. The kids were happy for her company last night as she spent with them. May God bless Aileen for her kind heart and love for the kids. We really appreciate her help.

Mama Kawira a neighbor has been helping Mama Ellyjoy with washing clothes, organizing the house, cooking, and also cleaning the compound. She is so loving and so passionate in all she does. We admire her dedication to serve the kids. May God greatly bless her.

Social worker interview

We’ve held interviews for the social worker. The social worker’s overall responsibility will be to develop social, mental, spiritual, and intellectual wellbeing of the children under our care. The social worker will be the link between the sponsors, the board of management, field co-coordinators, and international board of directors in Kenya and Abroad. Among the 21 candidates 9 were shortlisted and 6 who attended the interview have been interviewed. The panel constituted of all the board members and experts in the said field. We are yet to release the top candidate. We believe and trust that God is giving us the best person for the sake of the children.

Construction of the Technical Institute

We have already roofed the three workshops for the technical institute. We are now concentrating on doing the walls. We would wish to provide vocational training and development centre to these needy children.

Once that institute starts we will also enroll school leavers who are talented with skill and craftsmanship to come for training in carpentry, joinery, dressmaking, food and beverages, plumbing, masonry and other relevant skills to equip the youth of this county in accordance with vision 2030.

The training they get will make them self-reliant and will help them develop industries and hence provide more jobs to the unemployed youth. The returns from the institute will also help in running of the home.

Construction of the walls of the three workshops of the technical institute going on.
