We Need Your Support

I am pleased to be in touch with our friends, donors and well wishers yet again and i hope 2013 is treating you well. Thank you so much for your support and continue supporting our projects.

The project is designed to provide a new home for 3 identified elderly widowed grandmothers and their orphaned grand children. This is just for the start but there are so many other disadvantaged grandmothers that we can help with your support in our future projects.  We have so far successfully managed to put up on structure and we are happy to have done that and given the elderly grand mother a new home, a new lease to her life, and a future home for her orphaned grand children. I checked on its family on 15th April 2013 and the family is happy in their home. I am happy we gave them lasting joy. I am glad we did that and we  can do more with your support.

The house project remains on stand still because of lack of funds. We are still excited about the project and always will be and will continue to strive to move it forward. There is no doubt this almost finished and habitable house is one of our biggest achievements so far and what makes it even more meanigful is the value we attach to helping the very helpless in our community. We continue to pray and hope that when funds do come in again, we will continue with the project as required. I kindly request your support in creating awareness for the project by informing friends and family about the same.

Our remaining two targets to benefit from the project are still in need of the new home. The structures they live in have greatly outlived their life spans, the occupants are at a constant risk of the houses collapsing on them in case of a strong tremor. The old roofs are leaking and a lot can be done to improve their wellbeing such as providing the new homes. The joy and satification our first beneficiary received in the time she is in her new home is our greatest inspiration. 

We are so grateful for your support and kindly request you to continue helping and supporting us. 

I request that you help create awareness for our project(s). We seriously need your support in every way. Thank you always
