We’re thrilled to launch our first external project — Bright Futures Children’s Home – along with our excellent partner, BrightPoint for Children — an organization directed by Steve Smith from Marietta, Georgia, that runs an orphanage and school for impoverished children in Migori, Kenya.
Migori is the capital of its district and has a population of 35,000. Bright Futures Children’s Home presently cares for 37 children ranging in age from 6-16 and houses both boys and girls. Most are orphans or children who were on the streets.
They are in a rented facility that runs for approximately $125 US per month, and are at risk of losing their facility because of the landlord who is threatening a rent increase. A local church helps with very limited support for the children’s home, but the church is very poor.
