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 more needed classrooms, a mandatory office, a place for our teachers to meet, and a place for secure 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!
This project is on hold right now.
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 July 1, 2021 the Ground Floor and the Kitchen are completed! Windows are in, electricity is on, and children are at the desks and learning about themselves and the world God made. God is good!
The next step is to build the next floor (2nd). Our Goal is to have a Three-Story School Building! Right now, we need $35,000. The Second floor will have the mandated Office for our Headmaster Silas. Plus, more classrooms for the children. We hope to be able to have Computer Classes taught which is a skill each child deserves. Computers are not going away and the opportunity to be taught in Computer Skills can only help students perform in their daily life and into their future! $35,000 is what is needed to get this next floor built. Thank you for impacting children's futures!
To keep all of our children safe and our classrooms secure, we will be building a brick wall around the perimeter of Calvary Hope School and church. This will be a a solid brick wall over seven feet tall. Our school is in a slum and safety is a big concern! We want our children to feel secure. A stable environment is much better to learn and grow in. Building this permanent wall is so important! UPDATE: THANK YOU! You have made it possible to have the permanent fence built to keep our students safe! Praise God for this blessing from you!
YOU have helped us reach our goals before. Because of your generosity, we have a library, a beautiful kitchen, eight new bathrooms, and four classrooms! To God be the glory! Now we are asking you to partner with us again to raise $35,000 for the 2nd floor.
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.
