Focus

Village Project Africa seeks to foster methods that can break the chains of poverty that hold down many of the vulnerable people of this village and others like it throughout Africa. Some of the most vulnerable are women and children, and as such, they have become the heart of our work. Village Project Africa seeks to provide long-lasting avenues of self-sustainability that will allow vulnerable women and children to step into a brighter future of their own design. Our goal is not to simply provide for these women and children—we want to equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to provide for themselves and revolutionize their lives and their communities. To that end, women and children who are partnered with this program are given education and the support necessary to take their own steps toward a new life.

Although school is out, we are staying busy in the village. We continue to feed local children who are hungry, and many of our projects are still moving forward. Janet's posho mill is now installed and working. Posho mills are important in everyday village life - villagers use these mills to grind corn into the food they eat. We are so thankful to be able to provide the posho mill for Janet, who in turn can serve her neighborhood. Work on the apartment building to house our teachers continues, as does construction of mud homes for widows. Our goal is to get most of the outside construction work completed before the rains come.

In the midst of continued progress on our projects, this is still a very difficult time for our children and families and teachers. Many are feeling discouraged and depressed as the future seems so uncertain right now, yet we know we are in God's loving hands and we will get through. We know, too, that we are not alone in our experiences. It is a difficult time for most everyone everywhere. You are all in our hearts and prayers, and we ask for your continued prayers through this time.

We hope this message finds you and your families well. The world has certainly changed, and we are feeling it in Kenya too. Many of you have asked what is happening here, and we are so thankful for your care and your prayers.

While Kenya so far has only a small number of coronavirus cases compared to other countries and there are no reported cases in our region, the Kenyan government is being proactive and ordered all schools in the country to close. As you know, many of our children get most or all of their meals at our school - so our biggest concern has been ensuring that they still have food to eat. While we are not holding classes for an indefinite period of time, we are continuing to provide meals to our students. We are so grateful to be able to do this, and the children are grateful too! Thank you!

Please know that our hearts are with you all through this shared experience.

We are preparing Heritage graduates for successful futures!!

Our recent high school graduates just completed a computer class through the Kenya Institute of Management. When asked what they thought about the class, the students said “WOW!” They loved learning computer skills! Nixon, the KIM teacher, presented certificates to the students and a mug to symbolize Heritage Secondary School’s partnership with KIM. He will return to speak to current students about career opportunities. We are so thankful to a VPA donor for making this program possible!
