More than 150,000 orphaned children.
The Be A Hero, Changing Lives Inc project (formerly known as Kingdom Builders Center Kenya – KBC Kenya) is a Christian home for orphaned abused and abandoned children between the ages of 4 to 17 years of age in the Republic of Kenya.
Most of the children are orphaned because their parents have died due to HIV-Aids, tribal wars and Malaria. We will take the least, the last, and the lost. We support children who do not have any living relative left alive to care for them.
In the Republic of Kenya on Africa’s east coast live more than 150,000 orphaned children many under the age of 5 years. With the help of the Ministry of Social Services of the Republic of Kenya, we have established a Community Based Organization (CBO) which will assist us in screening and assessing the needs of these children and learn of their background, their tribe and language and their reason for being orphaned. We will also have access to their medical records which would contain information about any illnesses they may have contracted. Many of the children are affected by Malaria and Tuberculosis. Some could have the HIV virus, but all of these diseases are treatable. Their physical ailments can be controlled and healed with consistent medical attention and nutrition.
With the Lord’s help and favor upon these little ones, we will fill the Be A Hero, Changing Lives Inc project with the teaching of the word of God, love, the laughter of children, and hope for their bright future.
What we’re doing.
The first phase of the Children’s residence, opened in 2008 is complete, and is furnished to house 30 children, one live in house mother and assistant, cook, and laundry lady. There is also a full-time guard living in the guard quarters inside the gate of the stone fence during the night, and a part – time gardener who lives off campus.
Since the Be A Hero, Changing Lives Inc project covers 15 acres of fertile farmland, the children will learn to care for the livestock and help the caretakers to cultivate and harvest the crops used for their food.
Free public schools are near the Center. The Center’s staff and volunteers are hired from the community village, as well as other parts of Kenya.
Teams of Christian missionaries, come to assist the project. These persons help to reinforce the children’s knowledge of the Holy Scriptures and Christian principles.
The physical needs as well as the spiritual needs of the children are being taken care of.
As the Lord provides through you and the Windsor Church family, the home for the children will be able to support up to 100 children. The children will reside in the home from age 4 through 17.
After completing their form 4 education at the age of 17, (which is the equivalent of a U.S High school education) they will progress to University if they qualify academically or a trade school center.
With training they can learn a variety of trades including, but not limited to, mechanics, electrician, plumbing, computer skills, and sewing.
