Hallo, this is brother Franc Mona.I am by God's grace the administrator of international Faith Children's is a home under the international Faith ministries.It is under Bishop Raphael Buluma. It started in august 2005.We have majored on street children.We however have had some orphans and very needy cases reffered to us by the children's department.we also helped some children during the skirmishes (2007-2008) So far,we now have 23 children.they all go to school.Five are in secondary schools.the rest are in primary schools spreading right from pre-primary to std eight. The home gets funding majority from the International faith church.The children's need are met although with some strain on church finances. We are trusting God to get land for expansion and a van to help in transporting children to and from the church which is about 5km away.we are also looking forward to help sustain the home financially. The home is 5km away from kakamega town(on kakamega-mumias rd)May the faithfulness of our Lord God be upon you as you positively consider international Faith Children's home in your plans.
