Hope Africa is doing great work in Kenya, in both rural and urban settings. Hope Educational Centre in Sakwa has grown considerably, is getting great test results and is moving to a permanent block-construction home. They are providing opportunities that never existed for graduates to go to high school! By working with Mumomataei in Nairobi, they are bringing assistance to HIV+ persons living in some of the slums. 100% of all donations goes to assistance - all overhead is paid for by Board members.
Our son has been instrumental in getting this worthwhile organization up and running and providing miraculous opportunities for this Africian group of boys and girls. Our grandson made a visit to the school recently and it was a wonderful opportunity for him to see the wonders that ate being done through Hope Africa and also to help and interact with the students. This organization is providing such a needed opportunity for so many students. We are proud to support this worthwhile effort.
