With periodic drought conditions in many parts of East Africa, KENYA HOPE searched for answers to the problems experienced by Kenyans in various tribal areas. We researched the needs and found that the complexity of these problems required not only immediate responses, but long term rehabilitation and recovery for the people. God, in His wisdom, provided the concept of Hope Centers.
God has used the concept of the Hope Centers to help meet the spiritual, physical and mental needs of children and their families. Mission Teams from churches in America raised funds and joined with KENYA HOPE to build churches, clinics and schools in areas where the need was greatest.
Now, in 2023, there are seven Hope Centers in several districts of Kenya that are being used of God to bring help, healing and hope. All of the Hope Centers are at various stages of development, but all are making a difference in thousands of lives each day.
In each of the Hope Centers the needs are endless. Most commonly, these locations suffer from the lack of water, whether for drinking or cooking or bathing, or even for the herds of cattle, sheep and goats they raise. Providing a reliable and affordable source of fresh water is the single most life-changing thing that Kenya Hope can do (apart from preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ). Watch the video at the top to see the vital role water plays in transforming these communities. We have already drilled three new wells in 2022 and so far we have drilled three new wells in 2023. This comes in the midst of a four-year drought.
