Here's what we do. Here's where you can help.
Calvary Hope School Sponsorship
With your help, the gateway to a brighter future for the children of Kaptembwa is within reach! Donations toward the school provide a life-changing education for children whose families are struggling financially and salaries for our incredible teachers who not only teach the mind, but also minister to the soul.
Our school is growing and permanent block buildings need to be built. Phase 1 has been completed by people like you who are love in action. Next is phase 2. It consists of a library, more classrooms, a mandatory office, a place for teachers to meet, a dininghall/kitchen. , and a place for storage. Join our #growtheschool campaign and invest in a solid, growing environment for these children living in Kaptembwa slum. Just think about how your donation gift is impacting kid's lives through education! You will change their lives--and in doing that, your life will change too!
"Kidogo Kidogo" is KiSwahili for "little by little" and that is how the women of Kidogo Beads work to build brighter futures for their families as they make beautiful hand-crafted jewelry out of recycled papers. Each piece, just like the women making them, is completely unique and a masterpiece. And, each piece is another spark of hope for the future of these moms!

Income Building Project
Starvation is a reality known to the community of Kaptembwa, this is one of the first struggles which Kenya REAL sought to provide a way out of. What started as a promise of a single meal two times a week has expanded into two nutritious meals five days a week, thanks to generous donations. More children are coming to our school and that means more hungry mouths to feed! It is a privilege to be a part of feeding our kids and we need your help to continue this most vital work!
Grow The School Project
Space is limited, but the possibilities are real! We need to expand to provide the space for more students at Calvary Hope School. Progress has been made, but there is still great ground to cover. As of October 4, 2019, the Ground Floor has the block walls up! From Groundbreaking to laying the foundation and now walls! God is good!
The next step is to put a slab roof on to support the future two floors and get the windows and doors in. Our Goal is to have a Three-Story School Building! Right now, we need $30,000. One of the rooms on this Ground Floor will be a Library! Help us close the gap of needing $30,000.
On the new land, we are planting crops to help sustain our Feeding Program. Also on this new land we hope to have a well drilled. This will irrigate the crops and the water can be sold as an income building project. Five year goal is to have a well, latrines, and crops.
YOU helped us reach our goal to raise $35,000 to acquire this land! And since then, you've helped us promote self-sustainment. The field was fenced, plowed, and planted by members of our community. They received a wage and beans and corn were planted to supplement the Feeding Program!
Continue to pray with us and support #growtheschool. When you get in there with us, partner with us, you are part of changing lives for the better. Education means hope. Self-sustainment brings dignity. And love?...love keeps growing, never to remain the same.
