Mission:

Our Mission ~ to assist in changing the lives of orphans, poor and vulnerable children in Kenya. Our goal is to empower young people with the gift of a consistent education to help them to leave the poverty behind!

Results:

EDUCATION 2017- RISING TO THE TOP IS UNDERWAY! Each August our education program focuses on our students in a new way. Last year is was Leaving Poverty Behind and this coming school year it will be about RISING TO THE TOP! Our goal is to concentrate on our students and encourage them to do the best that they can be. We will support them not only financially but emotionally and mentally as well with the motivation to raise their grade level to a new higher level! With your help we can do so much more! HFLW has focused on education for students of all ages helping with school finances because without resources many children are unable to go to school or continue education through the years. Since our inception in 2008 we have done several projects helping with educating those living in poverty. We choose a project, create a program and solution, fund raise and then fix the problem. At an orphanage it was tearing down an old building and building a new one into a library and computer learning center for 64 orphans who other wise would not have access to school books or the outside world through the use of computers. In 2014 we started a farm to sustain a day care center and their needs for their lunch program for the children who came for school and lunch. The property was donated by a Kenyan family. There are chicken and pigs, gardens planted with many different types of vegetables, banana trees, passion fruit, and avocado trees planted. With the sale of eggs, meat, and vegetables it helps to pay for the needs of the day care center, along with providing food needs for the center, and employment. The year 2015/2016 we continued our sponsorship program for Kenyan students. Some of the poorest secondary level students, and those orphaned are provided with the opportunity to attend boarding school and further their education. This is an ongoing program year to year. We increased the number of students we are sponsoring from 7 to 16 in the Ngong area a suburb of Nairobi. With the increase of our donor dollars in Feb. 2016 our organization was invited to meet with a rural Maasai community in the border town of Loitokitok, adjacent to Mt. Kiliminjaro and Amboseli National Park. HFLW chose to assist the five year old school with operating, and recreational supplies. At the same time while here we introduced our Education 2016-Leaving Poverty Behind program to the community and was able to sign 9 students. Our total students enrolled in our program is now 25. Continuing in 2016/2017 plans have been made to build and support a new Pre-School in Kibiko, Ngong Kenya. The land has been donated, architectural plans drawn but to begin construction we must now find the funding to raise the new buildings! Please consider donating to this project for the future opening in January of 2017.

Target demographics:

Students gain an education to alleviate poverty.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

Last year, 2015/2016 we specifically helped with education fees for our 7 students enrolled in our Education 2016-Leaving poverty behind program, then added an additional 9 new students in the Ngong area. With 2 students graduating we were able to secure them employment while waiting to attend higher ed. Next we took on a Maasai rural school assisting with much needed supplies to operate properly, and added 9 new students from their community in Loitokitok.

Geographic areas served:

Kenya, Africa

Programs:

Full and partial Sponsorship for children in primary and secondary level of education. We work with students at the University level, and those pursuing trade school education. We provide opportunities to receive career goal guidance, workshops in job search and employment, and computer classes. Each year students attend self esteem building & motivational workshops. Last but not least we also fund raise so that we may have a Scholarship Program to help students in the US when they choose to attend college seeking career goals in the humanitarian sciences.

Reviews for Hearts for Love Worldwide Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Hello, I have known Lory and HFLW now for 5 years. I have volunteered at home doing little craft projects to help raise funds for the students supported by this organization. In the last two years I have donated monthly $10 to a sweet little girl named Catherine who is 8 years old and an orphan. I have had such a wonderful time doing this and look forward to hopefully many more years! I am 91 years old! So we are never too old to give back and we don't have to be rich to do it either as I live on a fixed income. This organization uses 100% of what I give and what others give for the education program. This is definitely a charity that is worth helping because I know where my money goes. It's small but makes a big difference and very trustworthy.

Your an inspiration Ms. Alice! You are proof positive that it doesn't matter your age or financial status to become a volunteer. You have given freely and lovingly and it is appreciated beyond measure. Thank you so much for your time and efforts. Sincerely, Hearts For Love Worldwide/Lory

I have been a supporter of this organization since 2008. I know that my donations have gone to the children and projects for which I have intended and not divided to 1% to the child and the other 99% to the administration and wage of the organization's staff. All of the workers at Hearts For Love Worldwide are volunteers thereby enabling all the donations to work for the children of Kenya. I love the idea of being able to help open the world through education to many children who ordinarily would not have had that opportunity. Thank you Hearts For Love for your dedication and honesty in this endeavor.

Thank you Jennie for writing your review. You and your husband have been long term supporters sponsoring a boarding school student and allowing any extra funding to go to extra needs for others. As you know 100% goes to your sponsored child. Not only have you shared generously with money but you have shared your time as well volunteering with paperwork, and helping in the office! Again thank you for all you do!

i was lucky to meet and work with hearts of love worldwide during lory`s last visit and i must say it was eye opener on the situation we have in Ngong,Nairobi in 2012.i was priviledged to capture some of the pictures of the volunteer work.i appreciate everything they have done and continue to do to this day, the work your doing to provide for the children in poverty providing,food,education,and to see childrenĀ“s faces light with joy and hope is truly inspiring and humbling.Back here at home we remember hearts of love worldwide and we thank you and may God bless you.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

more volunteers and more funding need to be considered to help organisation and reach as many children as possible.

Although being aware of this organization since its inception, in 2010 I was able to travel to Kenya with Hearts For Love Worldwide. I was guided through the entire process and the expectations. I was even made aware of the poverty and dire conditions that the people in the area endured. What I wasn't forwarned about was that my heart would never be the same. The entire experience has been an everlasting memory. I find it hard to put into words my heartbreak for the children and people of this amazing land, while remembering the joy, hope and love that the prople share with you a visitor. Hearts For Love Worldwide made my journey unforgettable, and has changed my life. As a current officer, I am now fully aware that all donations given to the various programs are indeed spent in the manner of which the donator designated. From a personal experience, I can attest to the need of the children that Hearts For Love is trying to educate through its donations as well as the food it provides for those little ones.
