Orphans With over 1 million orphans in Kenya due to the devastation of illness and poverty, we have partnered to build a boys(48 boys) and girls(84 girls) home for orphans. In addition, we are sponsoring an orphan and his "adopting" family for $20/month to enable orphans to stay in a home and within their community.
Medical The partnership equipped 14 dispensaries/health centers in May 2010 with a goal of providing local healthcare within Lumuru Presbytery. Over 80 companies and individuals contributed medical equipment($12 million in 2009) and funds. The medical team trained dispensary personnel, 4 parish nurses who will offer care at churches and in mobile clinics and healthcare workers, who will educate at churches and schools. The Presbytery has been given 24 more dispensaries to sponsor. On-going medical training trips will continue every 3-4 months to further training of medical personnel. Contact Colette Cozean at email@example.com for donations of medical equipment or to participate in a trip.
Education The Dick Grace Scholarship program supports approximately 20 students per year through seconary school, university and post graduate school. These recipients give back to the community for a minimum of 3 years.
Farming, Water & Irrigation The Partnership has drilled or caused to be drilled 27 boreholes. We have recently been given tens of thousands of acres of farmlands in Kenya and Tanzania to manage providing food security, water security, employment and improved health. Water irrigation and conservation programs in conjunction with University of California, Irvine, UNESCO & Presbytery are key to this effort.
