Summary

Hearth to Hearth Ministries operates 3 homes for orphans in Kenya and Uganda providing a total of up to 150 orphans with a safe, nurturing home environment and educational opportunities to assure that they develop into productive, self-supporting adults. These children have already suffered so much heartbreak in their short lives that a place to call home is all that they really want. A warm bed, good food and a loving, respectful "family" gives them the encouragement they need to move forward.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

13%of Kenyan and 14%of Ugandan children are orphaned before they reach 18 years. With high death rates from HIV/AIDS, poverty, and 50%unemployment, families don't have the capacity to take in extra children. Communities have few resources to provide assistance. Their inability to become self-sufficient adults has a great impact on their country's future. By providing loving support to these children, Hearth to Hearth gives them the tools they need to be assets to society.

How will this project solve this problem?

Kenya and Uganda are facing the same concerns; what do you do when more than 13% of the children are orphans, raising themselves? Without homes they are more likely to suffer early pregnancies, disease, and turn to crime for survival. Those served by Hearth to Hearth Ministries are raised to understand their responsibility to society. They become self-sufficient, educated contributors to their communities and the future of their developing countries.

Potential Long Term Impact

Hearth to Hearth Ministries provides orphans of any ethnicity or faith a place to call home with brothers, sisters and loving adult role models. Their strengths are supported so that they are able to grow physically, socially, and educationally. They learn respect, basic academic skills, growing their own food, and what it takes to make a home. Once reaching adulthood, they are guided through the process of becoming self-sufficient, productive adults and a positive impact on their communities.
