The Story

The Sengera House Orphanage is in need of help. All of our orphans came to us in the past few years from various cog church groups scattered around Kenya, church groups who could no longer care for these precious children after their parents died. They arrive at different times, but all arrived in the same condition, hungry (starving actually) wearing only the worn out clothes on their backs, scared, and out of school. Thanks to our Heavenly Father and the Agape Love that He bestowed in some in His church members (through their donations and offerings) all the children (17 in all) are now being well cared for with food in their bellies, clothes, and all enrolled in school. What a Blessing it has been for these precious children. But currently the orphanage is having some difficulties. The Kenya Government (in the interest of the orphans who are being cared for throughout the country) has imposed some requirements on all orphanages. We have complied to most of what they have required, but are now being informed That we need a few additional things like a cafeteria (currently all of our children are eating together in the sitting room of the house, with some standing as they eat, due to lack of enough chairs or even enough room to put them.) we are also being required to install better security of the compound, including a metal entrance gate and better fencing or wall to protect against intruders. They also want some tiles installed in the bathrooms (a requirement we were already aware of, but lacked the funds to accomplish it.) brethren, if you can possible assist these precious church orphans, please help in this situation, because we are being threatened by the Government here that if we don't comply soon, they will close the orphanage down.
your brother in Christ

(we have already started the constructing of a much needed store room.)

Greetings everyone, as you can see from the photo gallery, we continue to make progress on the cafeteria at the orphanage. We have now completed the construction of all three tables & benches, with only one still in need of its plywood top. The children are so happy and thankful to all of you for providing for them such a wonderful place to sit and eat their meals. We have almost completed the construction, but still need to install the glass in the windows, purchase and apply the plywood top on the remaining table and benches, and plaster the outside of the building with cement. We have also reduced the goal needed to complete this important project, and hope to reach it soon. School started on January 2nd for the elementary level children, and all are doing well. Two of the boys are hoping to begin High School this week. We want to thank all of you who have been helping these orphans, may the Almighty Father bless each and everyone of you. bill Goff

Greetings  everyone, we are still hoping yo reach our goal even though only a few donations have come in. The construction has been moving forward and making progress, but we were forced to borrow funds from the children's school fees that will be due soon as they reopen school on January 2nd. The Kenya Government was threatening to close the orphanage down if we didn't make progress on their demands, so it forced us to continue working. We had an inspection by some Government officials this past week, and they were quite pleased with the progress we are making. So things are going well, except we are short on funds. The orphans are all doing well, and have been much involved with plentry of "hands on" experience in the construction as we continue to teach them various trades. We are hoping for all of them to become self supportive as they grow up and finish their schooling. If you could possibly help financially (no matter how small a donation) it would be highly appreciated.

We continue to make progress on the store room and cafeteria construction, but we don't have enough funds to finish. If you could possibly help this orphanage, no matter how small a contribution, it would be highly appreciated. The orphans will be returning to school soon and we hope to have the construction complete before. There are pictures posted in the gallery that show the progress we are making. Thank you form the bottom of our hearts. bill Goff
