Issues: Education

Location: 989 S Main Street A-122 Cottonwood AZ 86326 USA

Mission: Our Mission ~ to assist in changing the lives of those living in poverty in Kenya. Our goal is to empower poor communities in Kenya with educational programs designed to serve men, women and children.
Results: HFLW does not concentrate on one particular orphanage, school, or project. Each year we are given the task of choosing a situation that may need the most help. We choose the project, create a program and solution, fund raise and then fix the problem. We take care of emergency situations as they arise but our goals are to create sustainable programs for those that need us. In 2014 we started a farm to sustain a day care centers needs for their lunch program for children who come 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 2014 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. Visit our website to see our accomplishments throughout the years. www.heartsforloveworldwide.org
Target demographics: Although children are the main focus we strive to assist families, parents, and all those that may be affected by the intense poverty in Kenya.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Last year we specifically helped Tusemezane Family Program Center in Ngong, Kenya stabilizing them with the start of a sustainable farm providing vegetables, fruit trees, & livestock. We also directly helped 7 students with their educational fees for the year in boarding schools.
Geographic areas served: Africa - Kenya. Mathare slum area located in and around Ngong. Maasailand located in the Great Rift Valley and of course we serve locally in our hometowns.
Programs: Volunteer Programs with scheduled trips to work with our projects. We have four funding programs, Education, Food, Medical/Health and Business. Sponsorships are available for any students.

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.
