Projects at our Partner Homes

Heart for Africa partners with children’s homes in Swaziland and Kenya.  Together, there are over 400 children living at these homes.  We are excited to see the development of the homes over the past few years.  As they grow, needs continue to develop.  We have four projects that we are working on at this time.  Please consider a donation to help us complete these important projects.

New Hope Center

New Hope Center is located in Swaziland and is home to  children.  We are working to provide septic and hot water in the boy’s dorm and the girl’s dorm.  These amenities will drastically improve the quality of life for the New Hope Center children.

Total Funds Needed: $5,470

El Shaddai Children’s Home

El Shaddai is located in Swaziland and is home to 70 children.  The private school at El Shaddai provides a quality education for the children living in the home and many other children from the nearby homesteads.  The El Shaddai school was the first completely free school in Swaziland.

El Shaddai has recently completed construction of 3 teachers homes.  Providing housing for the teachers is a great benefit to ensure consistent employment of high quality teachers.  We are currently raising funds to build three more teachers homes.  Each will provide a home for two teachers.

Total Funds Needed: $7,210 per home

Strong Tower Children’s Home

Located in Kenya, Strong Tower is home to approximately 50 children.  The home recently opened a new dorm which increased capacity from 24 to 70+.  However, the home does not have a proper kitchen.  Each day, the cook prepares three meals outside over an open fire.  We would like to build a proper kitchen for Strong Tower.

Total Funds Needed: $15,200

Merciful Redeemer Children’s Home

Merciful Redeemer is located in Kenya and is home to approximately 100 children.  Although the home has sufficient space to house the children, the two dorms do not have showers and toilets.  The children bathe each day in buckets in the yard and use toilets in outhouses near the dorms.  The showers and toilets are in place, but need a septic system completed before they can be used.

Total Funds Needed: $6,100

Calling Fathers and Sons to Kenya

DSC_0939Are you a father looking for a unique service experience with your son this summer?  We have just the opportunity for you.  Heart for Africa is planning a Father/Son trip to Kenya to work at our partner Strong Tower.  Currently Strong Tower is home to 24 former street boys from the Naivasha, Kenya area.  We have an amazing opportunity to model for these young men a positive father/son relationship.  And, through this opportunity, you and your son(s) will have a one-of-a-kind bonding experience.

The team will depart from the US on July 2 and return on July 12.  During the service trip, you will stay in a comfortable hotel in the Naivasha area.  Located in the Rift Valley, Naivasha is only a 2.5 hour drive from Nairobi.  During the day, the team will do construction work and gardening at Strong Tower, while building lasting relationships with the boys living at the home.  With space for only 20 people, this trip will fill up fast. Reserve space for you and your son(s) today.  Click here for more details.
