Hope for the Destitute
Hope for the Destitute is a nonprofit organization in Kisumu, Kenya that provides educational support for orphaned children and shelter for needy widows. Many children are orphaned as a results of the high prevalence of HIV and AIDS in this country, and are left in the care of elderly relatives who have no source of income. Education is not free in Kenya, and many students are unable to access it, leading to unemployment and a continual chain of poverty within their families. Hope for the Destitute ensures that orphaned children can access education as well as be nurtured spiritually in Lutheran teachings and devotions. We welcome you to be part of the Lord’s work through monthly or yearly donations.
We encourage and empower the relatives of orphaned children to care for them. Building new homes for widows and providing education for the children gives hope to the entire family.
Kibos Hope Academy was founded to provide education for young students from 1st through 7th grade who are sponsored for their tuition.
The catechetical seminar is an annual one week seminar for all our orphans and the youth in the area, led by Lutheran pastors to teach the Word of God, Christian doctrine, and important life skills.
