The Father's House Children's Home
In 2005 Chuck and Connie, Directors of HELPS, met Victor and Eunice Mwangi, founders of the Fathers House Ministries of Ruiru, Kenya. One of the many wonderful ministries they provide is a home for children. They have been caring for 15 children by providing for all their physical needs, including housing, medical care, food, clothing, etc.
HELPS came alongside and began by providing Christmas each year. New clothing and school uniforms. 2010 Chuck realized that 2 of the Children’s home students had finished school. What was to become of them? It became apparent that college scholarships were a need. And so HELPS began to send James and Jackie to University.
Then in 2011, another need arose High school education fees. HELPS, once again join our friends and started sponsoring high school students. 7 children all going to High school at once created another gap that needed to be filled. HELPS is only as good as its partners and donors.
Over the past fifteen years, these kids have become part of the HELPS family. With the help of generous donors like you, a scholarship fund has been set up to allow the kids to continue their education through high school and on to college if they so choose.
Thank you for your faithful support! We did it! They began high school most went on to college and the younger children are now finishing primary and on into high school. Scroll through the pictures and see how they have grown. They are precious and thankful to HELPS for believing in them. Let's finish this partnership; let's keep them going! Each life changed is a better tomorrow for all of us!
As you can see there are no babies here! Young adults finishing their school preparing to enter the world. They are full of hopes and dreams and HELPS is working hard to make these dreams a reality!
HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES
We love this picture showing James in his college gown and these girls in their high school graduation gowns. So proud of each of them for their accomplishments. Three of them finished school in May of 2020! They are each beautiful in their own way.
Another way we serve those in Kenya is through training at the Father's House Bible College. As of 2018 HELPS sponsored 290 students in the past 10 years. It has been a joy to see these graduates learn life skills, become confident, and all around better citizens, all because they attended Bible College! Life Transforming.
When we see these faces our heart smiles. To know them is to love them! Bright, cheerful, loving, great friends HELPS family!
These bright faces of men and women learning leadership skills, life skills, and having fun!
One of our all time favorite pictures of 2007 safari with the children from the home. Each year HELPS provided an outing of sorts to add fun and open their eyes to their own surroundings. What fun!
