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.

Hearts For Love Worldwide remains the most honest nonprofit I know of. ALL of the donations go to the people and projects they were intended for. The CEO, Lory Jacobs gives tirelessly of herself to those she has met in Kenya. She continues to learn about what needs to be done within the country's parameters (Africa) for what she is able to do to help those in need. She works closely with an educated, dedicated woman named Margaret Karani who has set up a small school for children in Kenya called Tusemezane. HFLW has helped several children attend classes at a higher level as formal school is not free in Kenya. Between Lory, Margaret and the donations from private donors, many children have been fed and helped to achieve a higher level of living.
Before this nonprofit became more viable, this CEO dedicated her own money to helping others go to school and have enough food to succeed. She was working as a caregiver and sending part of her earnings to Kenya. The people in that country touched her heart very deeply when she made her first visit as a volunteer in 2008. That comittment to helping others continues to this day. She remains honest and believes in integrity as a way of life; that is why all donations go directly to the people she continues to work for in order that they may achieve a better way of life.
It would be terrific if this nonprofit, Hearts For Love Worldwide could be assisted with grants in order to help even more children not only attend school, but to just get a meal to survive another day knowing someone cared for them.
Thank you for your time in reading this.

I have watched this nonprofit grow for the past 4 years. The CEO, Lory Jacobs has given all of the donations to HFLW to the people in Kenya. She has also set up sponsors for the children that need to go on to the next level of education as they have to pay for their education in Kenya. She has gotten right in and helped with the projects that she has set up and implemented on her trips to Africa, and has brought pictures back of the people and examples of how they live. She has a feeling for those she has met and has encouraged others in that country to continue on with their desire to help others. She is a good business person with a heart. She has integrity, is honest with the donations and truly has a love and concern for those in Kenya.
