In 2002 I went to Kenya with the intent of starting 'a new paradigm in orphan care'. We called it Heroes of the Nation. Going into our 11th year, I believe that we have accomplished that goal. HTN takes houses, educates, trains and loves over 500 children at risk. To visit the Heroes of the Nation campus is to see the 'happiest place on Earth', in that these children know they are loved and are being given the tools to not only live productive adult lives in their future, but to be part of changing Kenya for the better. They have a heart to 'give back' the love and help they were given. Our 4 pillars are 1) a strong and healthy identity, 2) an excellent scholastic education, 3) a vision for 'self sufficiency', and 4) a heart for social justice. I am amazed that a simple vision is now a reality that affects a nation. We have an amazing staff in Kenya and the USA, that no words can express my pride in them.
