Review for Heroes of the Nation, Redding, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Heroes of the Nation is the most amazing place to be!!
I have visited Heroes the first time in April 2017, I fell in love with the children and the heart of the organisation and decided to do a volunteering year at Heroes of the Nation US-Office where I've seen the wonderful work that they are putting in into the vision of Heroes. Through projects I got to return to Kenya in January 2018, March/April 2018 and another three months from September till November 2018. Heroes is always happy and warmly welcoming Visitors. Spending so many weeks and months here with the children has been life changing, seeing the smiles of the children and hearing how their stories and futures have changed because of the care of Heroes of the Nation is touching every heart. The children are grateful, thankful, helpful, clever and smart! The school is doing such an amazing work with them that they even reached great positions in the national school ratings, they are also creative, gifted and talented and also join school competitions in singing and dancing (I too got multiply times a taste of their talents!!). The school and organisation in Kenya are giving their lives to serve the children and so does the US office by making sure they are provided for. Since I have volunteered in the US office and helped with the sponsorship program, I have seen their faithful work and have now the joy to also sponsor a teenage-girl in Heroes High-school, and I am thinking of sponsoring even more children, because it fills my heart that I know I can change the life of a child with a small monthly donation!
Heroes of the Nation is continually growing and going after the vision to raise leaders in this Nation, from kinder-garden up to a college program, Heroes makes sure the future of these children will be bright! I can just tell you how amazing Heroes is and I invite you to reach out and learn more of it, and maybe even visit Kenya once yourself! Be blessed!!

Review for Heroes of the Nation, Redding, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This last spring I was privileged to be part of a team going down to Heroes of the Nation in Kenya to serve the organisation and the children. It has been a wonderful and live changing experience. It was beautiful to see where the kids came from and how transformed they have been now. On thing which really stuck with me is how all the children asked me: "What is your gift, what is your talent?" I was impressed by their great ability to ask good questions and then they told me:" I am good at loving people and I want to become a nurse!" others said:" I am good at Math and want to become a teacher" "I am great in drawing and designing and want to become a fashion-designer".... There where so many beautiful dreams. I loved to see who they really are able to dream again by being in Heroes, they are able to look into a great future now, and the teachers and staff team in Kenya is doing such a great job in planting identity and dreams into the children hearts! Not only are the children receiving a great education but also are able to recover form the vulnerable state which they are coming from and finally get their basic needs met, like food, shelter, belonging and love!
