Each child is important and deserving of a future…

Bethel Rays of Hope is a charity that focuses on providing for children who are orphaned and vulnerable in the city of Kisumu, Kenya.

It is run totally on a volunteer basis and all money that comes in goes towards the work in Kenya.  IMG_9616 - Copy

Our aim is to do more than just provide these children with food, clothing, and education.  We seek to do this within the context of a family unit.

We desire that they be trained in some type of job, consistent with their capabilities, so that they will be financially self-sustaining and able to provide for their own needs and that of their family one day.

 

  

We do this in a variety of ways:

  • By recognizing  God’s hand in everything we do.
  • By providing a “regular” family setting,  with a father and mother role model along with “brothers & sisters” to live with for children who might otherwise end up living on the streets ( or in the case of young girls, being sold into marriage).
  • By providing education, food, clothing along with medical treatment and counselling when needed.
  • Through giving donors the opportunity to support a family group –  not just a single  child but the entire family as they bond together.
  • Identifying areas of strengths for each child and facilitating opportunities for employment or further education when they complete their schooling.
