WE DID IT! A big Thank You to everyone who helped us reach our goal and our dream.

We found 8 Acres of land...
Our famiy lives here in Kenya to help bring a Future and a Hope to those who have lost it: the poor, destitute, lonely, ostracized, sick, and needy people we find in Kenya.
We help many people here in Nakuru, Kenya, but it can be grouped under three areas: The community project Our home for orphan girls Our home for orphan boys.
We bring aid to the community, especially those who have been rejected by society because they have HIV/AIDS. Specifically, we buy food for families who don’t have any, provide clothes for those who have none, buy medicines for the sick, and meet as many needs as we possibly can.
We need your help to purchase this land.
We hope to build a community. We want to put our 'homes' on it along the perimeter. We'd have our personal home with orphan girls, then we'd have our boys' home, plus in the future, we'd like to open more homes with family settings for orphans, and possibly housing for 'special cases' of people we find who need complete care in the last days before they die.
We could put a community area and play ground in the center, and then we'd utilize the rest of the land for farming and live stock as well.
"Part of me feels as if what I'm doing to help people will die with me unless I do something more to make a place that is permanent, where people can live together, learn, be helped, and then pay it forward and help others in the same way they've received." --Kate Brooks
What if we don't reach our goal?
We still receive the funds that are donated, and it will go towards land if we get at least $15,000 USD. We’d just buy four of the eight acres, use any excess to build a bit, and hope to raise the money to buy the other half later.
What if we raise more than our goal?
If we raise MORE than $30K needed for the purchase, we’ll buy all 8 acres, begin fencing, developing, farming, and housing! Wouldn’t THAT be awesome?
Thank you for your gift.
