Building a Rescue Centre, Kenya

Project Leader:

Sister Winifred Nkanya

I am Sister Winfred Nkanya from Nazareth Sisters working at the border of Isiolo and Meru County children's home known as Jesus Mary and Joseph. The home is based in the border of Meru and Isiolo county in the Eastern part of Kenya. For the most part people living in this area are nomadic pastoralists. They have no cash crops and the place is very dry with no rain. The place is inhabited by the following tribes: Ameru, Samburu, Turkana and Borana and most are Islamic and few Christians within the town. For many reasons they are unable to provide their children with a formal education. Our centre was started in 1994 with 30 children. Girls are trained in tailoring, dress making, culinary, and general hygiene. Boys are trained in shoe mending, art, and craft jobs. With humbleness we request your financial support to help repair and expand the centre making it a safe haven for all children in need. Thank you and may God bless you.
