Do you know where Lakartinya is? It's a small village in rural Kenya. The villagers suffer some of the ravages of poverty including severe drought and lack of adequate education for their children. Without those things, this tribe as little hope of overcoming their circumstances.
Melissa is traveling to Kenya on a mission through our church and Food for the Hungry to help build a classroom for the school and a fence around the school grounds. These are community-directed projects. This rural community places a high premium on education for their children, but there is a lack of classroom space. The fence will keep out goats that stray from their herds. Our church is in the 4th year of a 7 year project. Over the years, we have helped build classrooms, a kitchen, and water cisterns.
This is a 501-(c)3 non-profit organization. COME be a part of the transformation. Our mission offers hope in the form of self-sufficiency, peace, education opportunities, clean water, improved sanitation, fellowship, and love. Through God's love these people are not forgotten.
