Voice of Hope
“Since its beginnings in 2013 Voice of Hope seeks to improve the quality of life for impoverished widows and orphans in Kenya with our  focus on creating lasting relationships.  We seek to encourage our widowed ladies spiritually, physically and emotionally with the Word of God and facilitating opportunities for them to have better everyday lives.”

They strive to be the feet that show Christlike love and compassion to the needy widows and orphans and sharing a cup of water to the least of these; to be a voice of hope; to answer the cries of the hungry and helpless. To build relationships with their women, to encourage them in the Lord.

The Voice of Hope started their partnership in Kenya in 2013 and has send their teams to the local communities ever since. Voice of Hope currently has two groups engaged with one based in Chilliwack, BC and the other in St. Thomas, ON, and plans for further expansion!

Voice of Hope

Kakamega, Kenya

The Chilliwack ladies group is at it again! This group, now called Voice of Hope, traveled to Kenya in the fall of 2015, focusing their work on widows and orphans. The group visited our friend Beatrice at the Arise and Shine School, along with the same widows who they had built relationships with last year.

The projects they were involved with included sending money for a new latrine for Beatrice and sending candidates out for bio-intensive agricultural training. The successful candidates will come home to Kakamega to teach local widows the benefits and skills of farming to hopefully gain them a cow, provided by a program called Send-A-Cow.
