Our largest project is building the Sister2Sister Children’s Home & School in Ngong, Kenya. Thousands of children in Kenya are homeless due to poverty, violence, drought, or illness such as HIV/AIDS. Kitale is estimated to have approximately 2,000 children living on the streets, where the average life expectancy is just 16 years old. Sister2Sister has established architecture plans, purchased a plot of land for the home, have secured a water source and are now working on the foundation. We are actively raising money to fund the rest of this project. Our total goal at completion is $250,000.
By giving women a hand-up instead of a hand-out, we encourage them to become entrepreneurs through micro-financing their efforts to become financially independent. Women who receive a micro loan are required to pay the loan back. Sponsors may read profiles of these women and specifically choose who they’d like to support. We hope to have these profiles on our website soon! If you would like to hear more about these entrepreneurial women, please stop by our store Umoja on Trade St to learn more.
Pen Pal Program
Mothers of Disabled Children
Currently, Sister2Sister has numerous prayer centers where women come together to pray for their needs and each other. During these fellowships, the women open up to one another and discuss their problems. Sister2Sister is helping pay rent for these centers. Healing is already taking place through these fellowships. This is the most rewarding outreach of all because we know that prayers changes things.
Mission Trips to Kenya
Sister2Sister will take those willing to visit the mission fields in Kenya on a two-week mission trip. This will take place in July and October each year if funding permits. Right now COVID-19 has made travel difficult but mission trips are still needed and will be planned with the safest methods available.
