This is a remote village located in the Northwest portion of Kenya, specifically near the shores of Lake Victoria. Transportation in the village largely consists of walking and bicycling. With help from the locals, Helping Hands International has been able to sponsor the Christian Dream School and the Child Sponsorship program in this area, which benefits approximately 70 families and has more than 100 children who receive regular meals, school uniforms and the good news of the gospel. Helping Hands International is blessed to have Ron Asphole leading this year’s service trip!
