You could almost set your calendar by it every year. Between March and May, the rains come to Nairobi County and surrounding areas in Kenya’s capital city where the population of over 3.3 million people live in the nation’s largest city. While one can find all the amenities of a modern western city here, a closer look both inside and just outside can see that much of what is present is still a remnant of the poverty that has stricken this nation since it gained its independence from British rule in 1963.
The slow move to economic growth has come as a result of many things but the relentless and tireless work of godly men such as Mr. George Otieno Sera of Alliance Vision Education Centre, along with his dedicated staff, have seen to it that orphans have been cared for here since October 2008. We have featured some of the events and successes of this wonderful Ministry Partner of ours in the past and are pleased to say that they continue to thrive today. Unfortunately, as is the case every year, the rainy season is upon the people of Nairobi and the flooding has been devastating.
Alliance Vision Education Centre has been blessed yet challenged with the education and oversight of over 200 at-risk children. Needless to say, this is a task which takes an exhausting amount of funding to take on. For this reason, a fundraiser has been started to ensure that the ministry can continue on. You can be an active participant in making these children’s lives better by going to https://www.gofundme.com/avecfundraiser and pledging your support. You can also go to http://avec.webs.com/ and see the AVEC website first-hand to see exactly what is happening.
However you are able to partner with this wonderful ministry, on behalf of all of us involved, I wish to thank you and may the Lord richly bless you.
Serving Him through Serving Others,
James M. Dakis, D.Min.
