A 3 minute presentation about House Of Hope Kandaria.
House Of Hope is a ministry that brings hope to Children who are in needs. This beautiful girl to our medical centre with her mother. Both have been sick and they needs treatments. Kindly pray for them and support them by helping them with donations to help them get an X-ray and medications, and food.
Helping orphans in Kenya to have a home and education is the mission of House of Hope, More than a million orphans are living in poverty in Kenya after their parents died from AIDS and other diseases.
To help these orphans and vulnerable children, House of Hope Kandaria has embarked on a Project to build an orphanage and school for about 40 orphans. We expected to raise more to have the project completed.
The children in this orphanage will have access to an onsite health clinic House of Hope medical Centre and receive proper nourishment, education and encouragement. The school curriculum will include practical skills to help prepare them to be self-sustaining adults.
Under the direction of a trained staff, these 40 orphans, ages 5-18, will be housed in the facility’s dormitories. The school will offer primary and secondary instruction, as well as vocation training for older children. Training is planned in carpentry, metal work, electrical work, auto-mechanics and hair styling when opportunity allows.
The vision is to provide the children with a home now and also prepare them for a promising future.
David Okongo has been actively involved in the management of the organization since its inception eleven years ago. Project Aids orphan, Grace Community Church in Pittsburg, partnered with House of Hope to help build the orphanage.
The funds raised through from donors. The project has included purchasing a five-acre plot of land; land registration, architectural floor plans and site plans, fencing of part of the property, and development of the orphanage building’s outer structure. The project is about halfway towards completion. We certainly could use more individual and corporate support to help finish the project.”

House Of Hope Children Sunday School
Vision brings the organization together and helps keep it together, while division makes sure the right people are working in the right jobs. Then supervision follows to make sure the right work is efficient and observing the policies of the organization.
House Of Hope Medical Centre was opened in January and I am sure that the above statement applied, as the work started. I thank Project Aids Orphan for the many ways the Lord has used them to help us through many challenges and also for commitment in supplying the many needs.
Financially we have depended on gifts from our friends to build the new buildings and expenses of equipment’s. Still we are hopeful that joining our ministry can help us to meet more needs. We hoped to start construction of a children home which began in January 2012 , guest rooms, kitchen and dining hall, staff houses and schools in our Katito campus.
The ongoing child sponsorship in providing education, food, clothing, empowerment and spiritual needs have been successful. We have given hope to over 1000 orphans and children in the past 11 years. School health education and dental care and deworming have been a success. We are also beginning a scholarship funding for bright orphans who have excelled and joined university and college.
The farm has existed since 2005 and cows have been producing milk, goats have been given to orphans and chicken also provided for eggs and meat; an easy way to give a child protein (in chicken, meat and eggs).
Anyone who can contribute would be of great help. Your generous gift will help us improve many lives.

House of Hope and Health Care
The goal of House of Hope is to achieve daily, year-round staffing at the House of Hope Health Centre in Katito, Kenya. Staffing the Health Centre is the optimal way to sustain general medical and preventive care throughout the area, especially since the nearest hospital is an hour`s drive away. The cost for one full-time staff member is $300 per month; the goal is to hire professional and support staff members and train in future train our own.
· Malaria continues to be leading killer in Kenya, especially for children under 5.Thhhrough diagnosis and treatment, prevention by education, and the distribution of mosquito nets, House of Hope will continue to significantly reduce the incidence of Malaria prophylaxis.
· TB and HIVAIDS affect approximately 30 percent of the area population. Diagnosis, education and support can dramatically help end this deadly cycle. We hope we can make the House Of Hope Health Centre a TB hub for treatment.
As urgent dental problems are other major health concerns and can be addressed by House Of Hope. We can liaise with dentist(s) to provide biweekly dental checks.
· Nutritional and vitamin deficiencies are endemic among the children and affect immune health, growth and cognitive development.
· Death rates from pneumonia, diarrheal illnesses and other curable diseases will significantly drop with earlier treatment and education.
· Wound care, including tropical ulcers and abscesses, as well as chronic illness will be managed and follow-ups done.
· Immunizations of preventable diseases will be undertaken to help curb the morbidity and mortality rates.
House Of Hope and EDUCATION
The educational component of HOH is essential for the future of children in Kenya. The school day in Kenya is from 6:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and then from 2 to 5p.m. When House of Hope school will be ready this will help in feeding programs and child sponsorships. Meanwhile we are proud to have sponsored dozens of them to schools and take care of educational needs. This is the bulk of our budgets.
All the children want to go to school, but they must have the mandatory uniforms, books and supplies or they cannot attend. For many, these costs are prohibitive. The goal of HOH is to see that every child has the necessary items to attend school.
