Making An Impact In Kenya…
On the eastern coast of Kenya, there is a small, remote and impoverished village called Gotani. For the last 7 years, we have taken teams of Eastwind members to this remote rural area. People living in this area experience extreme poverty, and walk many miles each day to find filthy and contaminated water.
We have partnered with Touch Africa International to help develop clean water solutions, including rain catchment systems and water delivery systems. We started a child sponsorship program, to allow people like you the opportunity to provide funds for these children, so they can enjoy all the benefits of attending school. A monthly sponsorship will cover four basic needs; needs we too often take for granted: supervision by Touch Africa, private school fees and tuition, school uniforms and a lunch program. All of these children have one thing in common. Each wants to get an education and do something with his or her life despite the hardships faced.
On these trips we have also offered support to our 250+ sponsorship children and their families, food assistance to some rural communities, construction and medical help, spiritual support through church partnerships, and a bit of fun!
