As of December 8th, we still have 167 of the more than 400 elementary school children that attend Hope Educational Centre available.  The monthly cost of an elementary school education is ONLY $10 per month!  What a difference you can make in the life of a child, whose only hope for a life beyond poverty is a decent education.  Please stop by the kiosk on Sunday morning and choose to make a difference in the life of a child! 
We are so grateful to and thankful for everyone who has chosen to contribute to the Beautiful Hope Fund. ALL of our High School students have been chosen, and ALL of our High School students will attend school next year!

Our students at Hope Educational Centre, in Sakwa, Kenya, sing a song containing the line, “I have a hope, a beautiful hope.” You can bless our students and help to make their dreams a reality through the Beautiful Hope Fund. Your contribution shows the love and hope of Christ to the more than 400 students who attend Hope Educational Centre and area High Schools. 

Your investment allows us to faithfully deliver the highest quality Christian education by supporting the Tuition Matching Program and the 2020 Kenya Mission activities, including:   

Camp Hope (a Vacation Bible School experience);
Continued health care;
Teacher training;
Uniform repair; and,
Physical improvements to Hope Educational Centre. 
"The world can take away a lot of things, but they can never take away an education. Let's help make sure that our kids get this education so that they can change the world."  -Pastor John
