There are approximately three million orphans in Kenya. Nearly 700 children are orphaned each day—one child every two minutes—many due to HIV and AIDS.*
Walking into History Makers,
I carried only a Bible and a burden.
I loved the Word of God, but lacked vision to make a difference for the suffering children in my nation. As I was equipped with the Eight Core Values, slowly, the vision became clear.
My eyes were opened wide. I knew God was calling me to go against the grain of neglecting orphaned children and dedicate myself to share the love of Jesus with them.
God empowered me with His vision for my life. Now, I have the privilege of empowering orphaned children, ensuring they go to school, have clothes on their backs, and food in their bellies. Still, my greatest burden is teaching them to write the Word of God on their hearts. This is how I accelerate the spread of the Gospel.
This is how I make history.
