I went to Heroes of the Nation in 2012 and really loved the orphanage, the children and the staff. What a neat organization doing an amazing work! Wow. My family has sponsored a child for the past three years and we always look forward to his photos and letters. I highly recommend HTN to anyone interested in sponsoring a child. I really feel like my gifts are going to make a positive difference - and I have a confidence knowing that 100% of my gift goes directly to the kids in Kenya.

I am so thankful for the work of Heroes of the Nation in Kenya. Heroes of the Nation has given Africa an example of how orphans can be adopted, educated and trained to lead Kenya and Africa in the future. I am so impressed with their focus on education and training future leaders. I love that they have protected the futures of these Kenyan children. Heroes of the Nation has an understanding of self sustaining programming that is rare. They have inspired me as I work with overseas projects to create systems that truly empower children to serve and to lead. They have given these children the gift of a future that is filled with great expectation and understanding to lead peaceable and prosperous lives. And, they have given Africa a model of children who are growing up whole, protected and empowered. My hope is that the work of Heroes of the Nation is replicated all through out Africa.
