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 have fond memories of my first encounter without Jenny and Loryjacobs,both of Hearts For Love Worldwide. It was a gloomy day for me and Tusemezane children center. We were pondering the best way to throw in the towel. We did not
know where the next meal for the orphans would come from, were had no teacher not cook due to lack or salary allowance. I and the secretary Lucy were the only people left to volunteer to keep the centre running; buy now we had given up! Then comes these two hearts of love walk in so full if life,bubbling with joy and laughter, speaking words of hope . They promised to stand with Tusemezane and make it their priority, "Do not give up, hang in there ", were Loryjacobs words.

For sure they kept their word. It's wasn't easy for them & Tusemezane but today, i am so proud to be associated with Hearts For Love. Tusemezane can boast of the Kindness &love of HFLW. Among the achievements realized are:
Our daily feeding program is efficiently running with constant food supply. This means that the children do not drop out of school due to hunger to engage in risky behavior.
The School, Early Childhood Development Education is running smoothly because Hearts For Love are paying for two teachers and a cook.
85 children access food on a daily basis.
10 youth have access to Secondary Education.
We have 2 active women Groups engaging in entrepreneur activities in a bid to eradicate poverty,
A youth group empowered bye Hearts For Love, this is the same group that has produced the Tusemezane Documentary.
Construction of washrooms( pit latrines)

I am grateful that Tusemezane staff have gained skills in finance manage, book keeping and documentation, values like integrity, efficiency & transparency. I would recomend them without hesitation to any one without a second thought.
