Glory Centre Academy Secondary School

Glory Centre Academy Secondary School

As the students from Seje Glory Centre Academy and Yogo Glory Centre Academy reach Class 8 and move on to secondary school, many of them are unable to afford to attend a quality school.

In February of 2020 a parcel of land was located and a commitment made to purchase the land.  A dream has taken tiny roots in rich Kenyan soil - a dream for the continuation of the excellent education provided to the current 500+ students as well as to many more students in the future.

Partners will be needed to bring the buildings and the infrastructure up to par. A plan has been laid out for the facility to grow year by year as the students graduate and the need expands.

Agricultural development

Agricultural development

There is an urgent need to ease the annual variations in an environment where drought and distance from rivers can be mitigated through irrigation. The local chief has donated a plot of land for the project, and there is a well in place that has a verified flow of 7200 Litres/hour (1584 Imp Gal/hour) with a depth of 43 metres (141 feet).

The Chigumukire irrigation project is located on 5.5 acres gifted by the local chief, and is the area on which the Timotheos Foundation will grow crops. These crops will be used first by the Child Care Centre (CCC) with any surplus being sold to offset the operational costs of the farm. This project will also serve as a pilot project for future expansion that will allow the local community to also grow their own crops.

Historically, the village has irrigated through flooding irrigation ditches which necessitates a change in their management of water resources, teaching and monitoring how this project can be implemented. To this end, annual operational costs are important to the success of the project. While there is a significant upfront investment, there will be a reduction in the annual operational costs each year of success, and the expectation is for the project to become self sustainable.

Community development

Community development

Haiti Bible Mission is dedicated to helping the people of Haiti through discipling emerging leaders, local churches, and educating future leaders of this country. They enjoy seeing their staff catch fire for God and use their gifts for outreach, whether assisting the sick or teaching sports clinics with a focus on prayer and excellence. This relational, grassroots ministry is supported by both individuals and churches throughout the United States who freely provide prayers, financial support, and mission teams of all ages. Haiti Bible Mission has been involved in various community development projects in and around Jeremie to not only address the needs of the most desperate, but also to assist in breaking the cycle of poverty.

Education

Education

Education is notoriously poor in the remote and impoverished regions of Haiti where Lemuel works to make a difference by providing a quality education.

In 2012 Lemuel ministries began construction of the only school in the entire surrounding area. Many children in the community were either not going to school at all or traveling long distances to get at least some education. The 150 children who attend the K-9 school have been utilizing the non-completed school building...until recently, that is.

Recent funding has made it possible for Lemuel to not only complete the Elementary school building but also construct an adjacent Kindergarten to increase their capacity as demand continues to grow in the community!


Casa Esther

Casa Esther

The primary ministry is Casa Esther, a safe house for teen and pre-teen girls that provides a family setting on the premises of El Refugio. These are young women who have been rescued from situations of violence, abuse, neglect, and/or prostitution/trafficking.

At Casa Esther the desire is to provide a safe, supportive, and loving environment where abandoned and at-risk children and teens are given the opportunity to obtain an education, receive counseling to resolve the pain they have suffered, learn invaluable life skills, and receive biblical training to help each individual grow and develop towards their full potential physically, emotionally, educationally, and spiritually. Case Esther helps them become upstanding citizens who love God and can affect change in their communities!

The goal of the project is to provide the girls with a large classroom upstairs where they can do their homework and tutoring. A conference rooms, a small chapel/counseling room, a physical education room, and offices are also parts of the expansion project. The downstairs area will have a large kitchen divided into two areas so the girls can be taught cooking and baking skills.

Widow Care

Widow Care

In October of 2014 the Voice of Hope group (VOH) made their first visit to Kakamega. During their time in Kenya they met some beautiful women who, because they are widows, are trying to make a life for themselves and their children without the protection or income that a husband provides. Since that first visit, the team has invested in capital projects (improving homes and living conditions), and in food hampers, tuition, agriculture training and access to business training and microfinance loans for a very grateful group of families.

Child Sponsorship

Child Sponsorship

Child sponsorship provides a child within a community with clean water, nutritious food, healthcare, education, spiritual nurture and more. In this child sponsorship program, the child receives school-related supplies, monthly hygiene kits, annual health check-ups, and educational tutorials.
