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.

Hi, my name is Alice and I have been a donor and a volunteer with Hearts For Love Worldwide for two years. I feel privileged to be a part of this organization. This organization is small but that is why I was drawn to them, because their goals are to really help others. You can see exactly the impact that the donations have. We are kept well informed of how our donations are used. I have volunteered on numerous occasions at fund raising events and working with Lory and others has been such a wonderful experience! I have heard that volunteering on a trip to Kenya is a great opportunity and I hope to be able to do that soon! Thank you!

I have been fortunate to be involved with Hearts for Love Worldwide. I have been able to help a young woman reach her dreams of further education. I have been sponsoring her to attend a boarding school in Kenya. I receive the status of her grades every quarter, and have been blessed to receive some personal letters from her as well. I am kept updated about her progress, and am able to see where every dollar goes that I send for her. I am more than happy to recommend this charity to others.

I am so impressed with the selfless work done by this non-profit, and by the amount of benefit they can provide with the funds received. I have seen a video of the kids who have been helped by Hearts for Love Worldwide and they each show so much promise. All they need is some support and resources to help end the cycle of poverty.

I am so honored to support this organization because it gives directly to those who need it most, there are no middle-men, and I know that even the smallest donation makes a HUGE impact in the lives of those it serves to support.

I have seen the results of the work of HFLW first-hand and applaud their genuine efforts and devotion. This type of change can only be possible by the hard work and devotion of its passionate and committed volunteers and organizational leader.

I will continue to support and bring awareness to this wonderful organization as it strives to bring even greater change to the lives of individuals in Kenya through education, medical and food assistance. Together we can all make a change for the better!
