KISUMU - Kenya
GCB supports construction of a school building for Salem Ministries that includes temporary dorms for boys, a septic system and latrines. We’ve been able to give 3,500 books for learning and 400 Nocero lights. Through a strategic partnership with Convoy of Hope, we have also supplied 285,000 meals for the students. In an effort to address the needs of the large population of widows, we’ve donated land to 200 women, enabling them to farm the land, feed their families, and generate income. The need for basic utilities in this rural area prompted us to deliver electricity to the Bondo Farm as well as fencing for the property and pumps to supply water from Lake Victoria. Our board continues to consider further partnership opportunities with Salem Ministries and the communities of Kisumu and Bondo.
