When: Saturday, March 3rd, at 6pm
Where: King’s Ridge Christian School in Alpharetta
Address: King’s Ridge 2765 Bethany Bend Alpharetta, GA 30004
Why: Come celebrate with us the completion of phase one of our building project and the opening of our new secondary school! Hear about the next steps of our continued efforts to complete this project in rural, western Kenya. The fine-looking group of young people at right are our first students at the Carter Education Center! On Tuesday, January 9th, we opened our doors to over 50 eager students in 9th and 10th grades. To date, we have 64 students enrolled, which is just shy of the 75 we had anticipated. Please pray that God would continue to send us students to fill out our classes.
Cost: $50 a plate or $400 for a table sponsorship.
As many of our supporters are from other states, we’re offering a remote table sponsorship option. You donate a table and allow us to fill it with key people we believe need to hear more about our mission and ministry.

Karibu pronounced CARE eee boo

Karibu means "You're Welcome" in the Luo Language, BUT when repeated 3 times in rapid succession by an intern, it means "I don't have a clue what you are saying". That is almost always followed by howls of laughter from the kids. It's amazing the bonds and 'Secret Language' that develops as you spend time with these kids.

Please take a moment to look at the orphanage through the eyes of Justin, one of our college interns, who spent the summer at the Hope Centre.

Help us build a school


Imagine schools made from sticks, mud and corrugated steel. Imagine one teacher for every 55 students and sitting on the floor because there aren't enough desks. Imagine three students sharing a desk and textbook because there aren't enough to go around. Imagine languishing in a classroom, in some cases, for most of the day without a teacher to offer instruction.

It's hard to imagine because it's so far from the American norm, but it's the reality that our children face. Our eager students occupy teacher-less classrooms for hours each day with no textbooks and no assignments. They are deprived of the cognitive stimulation and critical thinking skills that are the foundation of scholastic achievement.

Our vision is to open a school at The Hope Center, primarily staffed by qualified Kenyan teachers with capable American oversight. We would ensure a low student/teacher ratio and provide accountability for teacher attendance and performance. The school would offer sufficient access to textbooks, manipulatives, and other teaching tools absent from our village schools.

If you're interested in learning more about our vision for the school, would like to hold a fund-raiser to benefit the school, or know of a corporate entity that might have an interest in providing a grant, please contact us.

We Need them to GO...

Meet Pierce and Carma Foulk. We NEED this dear couple to return to Kenya. Pierce and Carma served for many years with Wycliffe Bible Translators as teachers and administrators in their school in Nairobi. When Wycliffe closed the school, Pierce and Carma returned to the United States where they have served the Lord in various capacities. But their hearts are in Kenya. They know the people, they love the people and they love the Lord. They will serve the Lord through Living Hope as administrators of our new school overseeing the construction, hiring of staff, and all aspects of the operation of the school. They are now in the process of raising support funds. If you would like to partner with them financially, please go to our donation page.
