Kenya - City of Light
In 2010, Enock and Angela felt God calling them to begin a church in the large slum called Kipsongo-Kitale town in Kenya. To their surprise, the largest part of the new church’s congregation was its children’s church. The children coming to church were not only malnourished, but they were not attending school. Many of the children also suffered with infestations of lice in their hair and jiggers on their bodies.
Church volunteers began providing half a cup of porridge for the children to eat after services on Sundays and treatment for the lice and jigger infestations. Soon, more children were coming to the church to receive the porridge and other assistance. Enock and Angela also requested church volunteers to come weekday evenings after work to help the children learn basics, such as counting numbers, the alphabet and how to write their names.
With the help of Education Equals Hope, the church started its first kindergarten class in 2017. Zoe City Light School now serves 100 students in kindergarten through fourth grade. Education Equals Hope has provided three iron-sheet classrooms for these students, but many more children want to come to the school.
Enock and Angela now serve as directors for the school, but they need more partners - both teaching and non-teaching staff - working alongside them to ensure the children not only get an education, but also remain healthy. The school hopes to supply each student with school supplies, food, and needed healthcare.
Enock and Angela ask, would you be willing to donate and help keep a child in school? For $50 per month, one child can receive two meals each day and an education. If you can, join hands with Zion City Light School and help with the noble task of taking care of these innocent and beautiful children.
