About Emmanuel hope Centre
This centre has been in existence for the last 10 years- Started by a single mother, it was an outcome of a bitter inner conflict between choosing to stand by and watch or doing something. Jane was initially a hocker, she sold her wares in the streets of Nairobi and it’s here where she came in contact with the street children.
Her long engagement and interaction with street children led her to initiate this project. LTC visited the centre and interacted with over 50 children. We listened about stories of each of them and from that experience we felt Emmanuel's hope centre qualifies to be part of our programme.
Emmanuel has continued to receive orphaned, vulnerable and destitute children from the Department of children, police, local authorities and even have street children who have been bitten with life on the streets.
They have transformed hundreds of children and continue to do so despite the difficulties they face.
The environment in the centre is horrible- when we visited, the toilets were blocked, the children had so little to eat and their kitchen was badly smoking. While Jane and her team desire the best for the children and stretch beyond limit, they lack funds to furnish beddings for the children, sustainably feed the children every day and pay school fees for all the children.
What you can do to help
Emmanuel Hope centre team is not just sitting and waiting, they are actively involved in farming activities, they grow vegetables, keep a few chicken pigs. However a monthly donation of 852$ will open their door towards a better environment for all the children. It will improve diet needs, help sustain school attendance and improve investment into the farming activities to bring about self reliance
What to Expect
You will be in direct contact with the orphanage and LTC will continue to train and equip them with necessary skills to improve their standing. This means, we will monitor progress and update you accordingly.
