Everyone’s Child rests upon the principle of provision, holding fast to the idea that providing children with an education equips them to become the decision makers of tomorrow. Supplying orphaned and underprivileged students with a daily meal has become an important part of this program also, as children need nourishment in order to learn.
Since the beginning of Everyone’s Child, many have contributed to the ongoing efforts to sustain the orphans and underprivileged children in Kenya. Our goal is to continue fundraising efforts to build schools and support the Orphan Feeding program, providing education, food and support for these children. EC is currently supplying 500 meals a day to orphaned and underprivileged students at four preschool and primary schools in and around Nakuru, Kenya.
In 2009 and 2010 a team of medical doctors and nurses from the USA conducted several medical clinics in Kenya, where for two weeks at a time over 1500 patients were seen and treated. The American doctors and nurses worked alongside members from Kenya’s Ministry of Health to identify and treat patients with HIV/AIDS as well as tropical diseases. Plans are currently underway for the building of a medical clinic near the site of our first school in Lanet. This clinic will be staffed by the Kenyan Ministry of Health and will provide free medical assistance to residents of the village of Lanet.
In 2013, Everyone’s Child partnered with the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) to fund the installation of a rainwater harvesting system in the arid region of Kampi Ya Moto where the Orphan Feeding Program was established. For decades, people living in that area have retrieved their drinking water from a river frequented by people and animals alike. Thanks to this new system, the students at our school finally have access to clean drinking water!
