Hello! Family Hope wishes to acknowledge you for the unending support you have given us.

Every time we have reached out to you for help, you haven't let us down. Wow! In this month of LOVE, we want to let you know, that we cherish you so so much.

Many people believe that a rose flower, a box of chocolate, red-wine and such pleasantries are the nitty-gritty of this month. They might be right, we agree!

But the philosophy of LOVE is well DEMONSTRATED by acts of kindness, compassion and charity. You have embraced the latter belief and that makes you our VALENTINE.

We know that you sacrifice a lot when you give. You are not giving because you have much either. But you have been giving because you believe in sharing. You believe in making the world a better place for others as well. You believe in bringing meaningful change in communities around the world.

We are so much honored to have you as our partner, friend and more so as a member of our global family.

Your donations have given us a lifeline. We have paid our rents because you give. Our children and volunteers eat because you give. Our children get learning materials and go to school daily because you give.

It is by your act of kindness that many children will have their careers built, their future safeguarded and their families as well as communities, at large, transformed.

As we usher in the atmosphere of LOVE in the coming weeks, we celebrate you for practically demonstrating that you in deed LOVE Family Hope Community Centre. MUCH LOVE!

Happy new year to all our friends and partners. We wish to thank you for  your kindness and support throughout the previous year 2021.

We are so much grateful, in particular, for our anonymous donors to our ongoing online fundraiser for the current project "Educate-200-needy-children-in-njiru-nairobi-kenya". 

With your donations, we were able to clear our 9-month rent arrears accumulated during the Covid-19 lock-down periods. Thanks to all our partners who responded quickly to our project appeals.

Our volunteers together with the children have enjoyed the peace of being in the center without worrying about ever being evicted due to unpaid rents. 

200 children within our Centre were fed, provided with learning materials and sustained continously throughout the year.

Recently we placed a special fundraising appeal to enable us settle our rents upfront. Kindly check your mails if you received it. We will be sincerely grateful if you spared a few coins or dollars to help us achieve the appeal's target of $300.

You could also consider being a monthly donor to our project. Being a monthly donor gives you an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our children regularly. You therefore ensure that the children have eaten, gotten perfect health care and other basic needs. 

Kindly, do not forget to always share our project link with friends, family, colleagues and associates alike. Together we can make this world one global family in which each person's cry is every person's concern. God bless you and we wish you all the best of luck in this new year. We know that together we can change lives for the better as well as transform our communities.

The calendar 2020/2021 has been one of its kind.  Covid-19 challenges not withstanding, lives must continue, children must go to school, families must thrive and projects must move. We are glad that most of you, our partners and volunteers understand this more than anything else.

So here we are again! We thank all of you for giving us an opportunuty to serve our community through your support. Your timely response to our project appeals, constant monthly recurring donations, emails of concern and sharing of our project link on GG with friends, colleagues, relatives and associates have not gone unnoticed.

Our feeding program runs because of your donation. Our volunteers are sustaineed  because of your donations, our children get writing materials because you donate towards that course, our premises'rents are paid for because you donate, our bills are settled because you have donated to us throughout the year and Family Hope thrives because you have got its back. 

When our project leader was diagnosed with Covid-19 towards the end of third term, lots of challenges followed, our offices had to be closed for a while, but most programs were managed remotely. We sent out appeeals for rent support. You did a great job by supporting us at that difficult time.We thank God that, he pulled through and he is now back and bold. 

The Competency Based Curriculum, as was  introduced in Kenya, has put a lot of pressure in the learning system. Lots of learning materials are required. We are glad that you,as our partner, have made all these challenges a walk in the park.

We initially sent out a project appeal to enable us put a down payment towards acquiring a piece of land on which the school sits. So far the amount set at 20000 USD has not been fully achieved. We therefore still appeal for more support towards this particular goal.

Together we have become global parents to many children who sincerely need us. The best way to empower a child, as global parents, we still believe, is through education. For all the great work you have done since the beginning of the year, we say a big THANK YOU! 

We still have a long way to go. Lots of things need to be done. Many children still need our help and support to be in school. Many children still need our support to have at least a decent meal even once in a day. Proper helath care is still  beyond the reach of many children and families.

If we work together, with global sense of responsibility towards all children and families, breaking the national, class, racial, financial, and physical boundaries alike, we can make this world one big family where each person cares about the other.

Kindly share our project link to as many friends, colleagues, associates, partners and organisations alike. In so doing, we shall build a team of partners towards this noble idea. Bless you all!

Hello! How are you doing? Hope you are safe and sound. We are in our  second week of the term. We are glad that our children are now catching up with learning after losing one week. Now everything is picking up earnestly. We have you to thank for this development.

Hope you heard time to read our immediate previous report, right? Well, thanks! In the report we placed a solemn request for support to help us finish acquiring the current site, because it's on offer, remember? The value stands at $40000. Acquisition of this site would go a long way in establishing the centre permanently thus ensuring a non interrupted learning process, permanent home for our children and on-site volunteers. 

This is and still remains the main goal of Family HOPE Community Centre currently. Achieving this will be a great leap towards realizing our main objective:

1. Ensuring that every needy child within the immediate community gets access to uninterrupted quality education. 

2. Every child in need gets food to eat, gets access to safe and clean water, access to health care plus other basics as well as a place not only to sleep but also a place to call home. 

Together we can achieve this. Thank you so much for being part of this life changing initiative. Thank you for being here in all seasons, thank you for always giving monthly donations and following up with us.

Thank you for reaching out and going beyond norm to respond to our urgent fundraising appeals.

I believe we can do this together. I also believe that this is the time to organize that fundraiser, this is the time to hook up that friend, family member, colleague, partner and associates by sharing our project link with them to help Family HOPE meet this one very important goal.

Receive lots of love from the team here and the children.

Warm Regards!

On 11th of May, exactly eleven days ago, we sent out an urgent appeal titled " HELP FAMILY HOPE TO PAY 3-MONTH RENT WORTH $600".

On that particular day, we were faced with the reality of possible closure of our school and Centre. This meant that our on-site volunteers would be homeless in a week's time. It also meant that our children would have neither a school to go to nor a place to call home in less than a week. 

So you can imagine this, our volunteers were on the verge of losing a place they call home. The children, in particular were losing a place they have known as both home and school. As an organization, we were on the verge of losing our investment in time and material. 

 

The agony and the despair in the faces of our on-site volunteers plus the sadness and the sorrow in the faces of our children filled everyone's heart with excruciating pain accompanied by sleepless nights. BUT, THE GOOD NEWS IS, you have stopped all that from happening. You came through for us! Your timely response and subsequent donation has given us a lifeline. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

From that day to date, a total of $621 has been donated by you in response to the appeal. We herein express our sincere gratitude for your kindness and pure demonstration of love. Your response has been  unbelievably quick and sincerely encouraging. We will be forever grateful to you for not only believing in us but also investing in our children's lives and Family Hope as an organization. You have rekindled the old adage " A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND IN DEED" in our hearts.

We have now managed to make and agreement with our lesser to allow us to continue with our operations as we wait for GG disbursement to be effected. 

We thank you so much for being here for us, though remotely and "ANONIMOUSLY", and for being the global parent to our children. We thank you for being a true friend and a blessing to the entire Family Hope fraternity. 

KIND REQUEST:

Can you help Family Hope finish acquisition of this land and ensure our children and on-site volunteers have a permanent home, a permanent school and a  permanent Centre once and for all? 

Can you organize fundraisers on behalf of Family Hope, share our project's link with family members, friends, colleagues, associates and other corporate groups to help us raise $40000 to achieve this goal? 

Above all, please don't forget that you are a true friend and we value this friendship. Remember that you are a constructive partner and we cherish this partnership. You have done much already and if it were not for you, things would have gone south for us. Be blessed!!
