What we offer
We are offering basic necessities in life i.e. food, shelter, clothing and Education.
We support destitute orphaned children, or those living with guardians who are unable to take care of them due to extreme poverty or physical disability.
Today we are supporting over 130 children, 12 mothers with disabled children and we are offering empowerment programs to the struggling single mothers.
The Project relies solely on the benevolence and generosity of individual/corporate well -wishers for its survival. Any help (in cash or in kind) is highly appreciated.
At present, sr. Lucy runs the project as full-time volunteer, assisted by 3 other volunteers and a committee of 5 members.

To support orphaned and vulnerable children, to empower youth and single mothers through initiatives that promote self-reliance and sustainable livelihoods
CONSTRUCTIONOF THE CENTRE:
We have been running this project in an open area next to Gatongora police station, during rainy season or when the sun is too hot it is difficult to have our meetings and we lack a home to house the orphaned and a secure place to rescue the street children. We have started the construction of the Home but are not able to complete due lack of funds. It is our hope and prayer that you will help us to meet the remaining cost through well wishers
We require a Boundary protection wall. There is some insecurity in the area we would require to keep our children in a secured environment. This is indeed a dire need and we look forward in hope for this support.
Total cost for the construction is –USD 30,000
Boundary wall- USD 5,000
