CommunitiesThirty Kenyan Orphans Blessed Through Sponsorship
March 19th, 2014
For more than 7 years World Servants has had the blessing to be involved with Suvia Children’s Home in Kali Market, Kenya. Several mission teams contributed finances and time for the construction of the dormitory, kitchen, dining hall, administrative office block, latrines, chicken coup, perimeter fencing and security guard shack.
The doors opened in 2009 and several new girls have been added to the family. There are now 30 young ladies who call Suvia “home” and have lives they probably never dreamed they could live.
Financial support, through child sponsorship, along with many prayers, have made it possible for the girls to not only grow up, but thrive at Suvia Children’s Home. Thanks to donors like you, these young ladies, orphaned at a young age by the death of both of their parents, not only have hope, but confidence that their lives have meaning and they will make a difference in the world in some way, shape or form.
Education is the key to reducing poverty and is highly prized in Kenya, but only about 30% of children are able to attend secondary school. Seven of the older girls attend secondary school, something they would never been able to do before coming to Suvia, because of donors give to cover their tuition.
Each year, I am amazed at how the girls have grown and changed. They carry on conversations, ask questions and share stories about their lives with us in English. They are developing life-skills to ensure they can care for themselves when they become adults. They attend church every week and grow in the faith and understanding of God’s mercy and grace.
The example of Suvia Children’s Home is only one of hundreds that show what a difference someone like YOU can make in the lives of children and families ,and the development of communities around the world. Please be a blessing and choose to share your blessings with others. THANK YOU.
