Many children in Kisumu are orphans because of HIV/AIDS, poverty, rape or abandonment. They are discarded… unwanted… neglected.
But they have not been forgotten.
Our partners, Frank and Lindah, are creating a safe haven for these children –called the Milele Centre – where they can be nurtured and educated.
Frank and Lindah have a dream to see the Milele Centre one day become a ‘campus’ for children – there’ll be housing, a school, a sports field, training facilities for community leaders, and self-sustaining farming.
They want the children to be raised by the same ‘mamma’ through their child lives, so they can experience what it means to have a family.
Through your generous support, we’ve been able to buy 10 acres of land for the Milele Centre, on the shores of Lake Victoria. So far, we’ve built a beautiful residence for Frank and Lindah on the property, so they can be there to care for the children.
But that’s only the start. We need your help to develop this community.
Meet Frank & Lindah
Frank and Lindah Nyameche have a heart for those who can’t help themselves. When we first met them in 2006, they were serving people in the Kibira slums in Nairobi, Kenya. Their work was not glamorous by any means, but it was fruitful.
The Milele Centre is their dream and it’s an honour to partner with them to make it possible.
