God is richly blessing the work He started, here in Mombasa, Kenya. Through New Hope School, many children are being fed, educated and hearing the Gospel. Although we have seen many blessings here, New Hope has a lot of financial burdens, that if met, will allow more lives to be touched. If you are looking for a way to share the blessings God has given you, please consider donating to this work.
Several years ago, construction was started on the school to add more classrooms and to build a large meeting hall for holding Sunday services. Though it is not completely finished, the building is in use and many from the school and community hear the Gospel preached at New Hope School. The school is continually growing and there is now a need for high school classrooms at the school. Previously, the high school was held in a different location. Trying to run the school in two separate locations presents several challenges. It would be a great help if New Hope Primary School could be the site of New Hope High School too.
The New Hope feeding program provides breakfast and lunch, to children at New Hope School. Breakfast is bread and tea, mixed with milk. For lunch, children are typically served rice and beans or corn and beans. Meals are sometimes provided on Sunday's, for children that attend church. In times of increased need, the feeding program also helps specific needs of students, staff and church members. During the pandemic of Covid-19, the school has been able to provide food to church members that are suffering financially.
New Hope School was without a library until February 2018. The primary school alone, has more than 600 students. We partnered with Rotary Club International and several other churches and organizations to have books donated for the New Hope School library. Textbooks, literature and updated learning materials are always a need at the school. Because of the lack of textbooks and resources, learning often looks like students taking notes from their teacher, on a chalkboard.
It is not yet time to begin construction plans for an orphanage, but we are asking for your prayers. Sarah Olonde and I both feel very strongly that it is the Lord's will for there to be an orphanage at New Hope School. I do not know when this time will come, but I do know that it will only be possible by the Lord's provision. An orphanage is not like a typical construction projection that requires one set amount of money. An orphanage needs continual support and a route for sustainability, to provide for the needs of the children that the orphanage will take in. I can assure you that if an orphanage were here, it would be full of children that are hungry for a warm meal and God's love. Please keep this cause in your prayers.
A donation made to New Hope Fund, that is not designated to help a specific need may help a variety of projects and needs. Often general donations will support whatever is the most current need. This may be providing children with uniforms, helping finish construction projects, purchasing supplies for the school, or contributing to long-term projects that take time to save for.
