WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR DONATIONS.
YOUR DONATIONS ARE REALLY HELPING LIGHTHOUSE OF GOD MINISTRIES TO CHANGE CHILDREN’S LIVES IN KIBERA SLUM IN NAIROBI, AND HELPING ST STEPHENS CENTRE
Through your kind donations, all children receive breakfast, porridge made with a maize flour, which stays in the stomach longer. It is saving lives.
WE have extended the school many times, to give more children education at St Stephens Centre.
WE have provided St Stephens centre with educational books, stationery and dictionaries. (PS if you have any spare dictionaries, please donate them to Lighthouse.)
WE now have a primary school in Kibera slum, Nairobi for children aged 3-12.
WE are providing clean water after food and education.
WE are providing jobs for 10 teachers and 3 helpers, at St Stephens Centre, Kibera. (PS we are only paying a small amount of wages, £20 each a month, and we would like to pay £50 each. We are looking for help so we can sponsor teachers, we urgently need to pay them more, and train more teachers too)
WE have provided new mattresses for the teachers to sleep on so as they live in Kibera too, and most sleep on mud floors. (PS we are also wanting to provide mattresses for all 600 children too as most sleep on the floor also. £15 each)
WE have made many children smile which is the Lighthouse Of God Ministries Motto.
WE have provided clean water into St Stephens Centre, which is not just helping our 600 children but is helping the local community. This has been our main project, as many children die drinking dirty sewage water.
WE have provided mosquito nets for 500 of our Lighthouse children so far, but this was 5 years ago. THE CHILDREN NEED NEW NETS AND WE HAVE MORE CHILDREN TO HELP.
MALARIA AND DYSENTERY ARE THE MAIN CAUSES OF DEATH IN KIBERA SLUM FOR THE UNDER 5’S. Please see Sandrine Appeal on the news and events page, as we help children with their health care needs
THROUGH DONATIONS WE HAVE LOWERED THIS DEATH RATE. THANK YOU
Our next main project: We want to sponsor all 600 children, ensuring all 600 get food and education, WE have a Sponsor a Child Appeal, now feeding half of the children in St Stephens Centre. (PS we are DESPERATE to get all 600 children fed, it is heart breaking sending 300 children away at lunch time knowing some of them have not eaten for 3-4 days apart from the porridge Lighthouse Donations have provided.)
Children who are hungry don’t stay in school, they have to work illegally: drug runs, prostitution to get a cup of food, etc The children are so vulnerable to being snatched when they are not in school.
BUT THANKS TO OUR CHARITY SHOPS AND DONATIONS FROM LIGHTHOUSE FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS, WE HAVE PROVIDED EXTRA FOOD AND CONTINUE TO PROVIDE EXTRA FOOD THROUGH YOUR DONATIONS.
BUT WE NEED ONGOING HELP
This year we were donated a laptop for the school by some friends. We gave the laptop to Angelina Nduta the Director of the school and gave her some basic computer lessons. Lighthouse also brought them a good quality printer for the school and now they are able to use this for St Stephens School to help with the children’s education.
We are urgently needing more laptops for the school so if you have any old laptops collecting dust, please donate them to us. Lighthouse Children and St Stephens Centre would appreciate your support, as education can change these children’s lives, and help them in the future to leave the Kibera slum. Thank you.
