At the end of 2005, we built a children’s home in Kenya in order to do something about the enormous number of orphans that needed taking care of. We also help disadvantaged children and their families in the surrounding slums through our Primary School, Secondary Education, Health and Family Empowerment programs. During the remainder of the time, we work hard in order to become less financially dependent on sponsors and donors in time.
