"Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in
their distress." (James 1:27, NASB)
Because of the HIV epidemic, tribal clashes, and low life expectancy in general, there are many
orphans in East Africa. In the rural places, the house church network works to provide for the needs of displaced
children, as much as practicable. With your help, much more can be done. If you have an interest in supporting
orphans in the rural places of East Africa, give a general donation on the donation
page and write "help orphans" in the comment field.
Secondary school in Kenya is not
free! Children only have access to secondary education if they can afford tuition. Oftentimes, without support
from generous folks like you, children are prone to repeat the cycle of poverty into successive generations.
You can help them break the cycle by providing fees for educational enrollment and curriculum for a
student. Many Kenyan parents and legal guardians need your help, both in the rural places and
in the cities.
KDM-Kenya Director, Patrick
Wafula, runs several secondary schools through Bahati Community Centre, a
Kenyan Community Based Organization (CBO). You can help us achieve the Kingdom vision of spreading the Gospel while
helping needy children by sponsoring Bahati scholars. You can sponsor either a day scholar (meaning
they go home at night) or a homeless child (boarding is provided). You will also be
encouraged to pray for and communicate with your sponsored child. Day scholar fees are $200 USD annually or $17 per month.
Centre has recently established two simple hostels in the community to
homeless. The homeless children fall into three main
· Vulnerable Children:
Those who live under difficult circumstances such as child abuse, neglect or abandonment.
· Orphaned Children:
These are children rendered orphans either by HIV/AIDS or natural causes and have no relative to take care of
· Displaced Children: These are children who were affected by the post-election violence. They were displaced
from the Rift Valley, Kibera, Mathare and Kariobangi slums where the violence was extreme. Some have gone
through very traumatic experiences and require specialized attention to return to normal. Some of these
traumatic experiences include witnessing murder, loss of parents and family, being attacked or insulted on
ethnic lines, loss of property and being completely displaced from home and school.
The fee for tuition for orphans and
at-risk girls requiring on-campus housing is $280
USD annually or $24
