We have a vision of a Jengana centre where people who come from a background of extreme poverty can have a chance of a new start with the same opportunities as others.
We are now blessed to have 6 acres of scenic land in Thogoto, about 45 minutes from Nairobi city where we plan to have a home for orphaned/abandoned babies and children where they can be loved and brought up with hope and a future. This will be our Kipepeo home. Kipepeo means butterfly in Swahili, with the analogy being of an unattractive, insignificant caterpillar which following its time inside the shelter and nurture of the chrysalis emerges as a beautiful, independant butterfly. We are currently fundraising so that we can make this part of our journey a reality in the coming months.
Whilst we raise enough funds to build our children’s home on Jengana land, we hope to open the Kipepeo home in rented accommodation so that we don’t delay in helping these babies.
Guest accommodation would also be in our hopes for the near future so that teams can stay and work on site as well as hiring out rooms to local holiday makers.
We are working by faith and on a step by step basis but in the future we also plan to have:
a primary school, support projects for street kids and advice/support for local self sustaining farming/businesses.
None of this vision will come to fruition without God’s provision first and foremost and secondly without generous financial support.
