Helping Hands International currently supports over 200 students through our monthly Child Sponsorship and Scholarship programs. Plus, we feed over 1,600 students each weekend through a Saturday feeding program. We invite you to help us share the love of God by getting involved - see how below!
Sephastine is in the sixth grade. He lives with his younger sister, elder brother and his mother (who lost her job due to COVID-19). His favorite subject is English and he wants to be a doctor when he grows up. Will you consider sponsoring Sephansine?
Stasty is in the fifth grade and her favorite subject is science. She lives with her four siblings and single Mom (who sells French fries to support her children). She wants to be an engineer when she grows up. Will you consider sponsoring Stasty?

In August 2022, we received the following letter from this grateful student who has been sponsored with us since 2017!
In July 2022, we learned this Kenya student was falling behind in school because he needed prescription glasses. We are happy to share HHI was able to bless him with the necessary eyewear!
In May and June 2022, we continued to bless children through our new Saturday Feeding program!
In March 2022, we learned one of our Rakwaro, Kenya families welcomed the arrival of triplets!
In March 2022, HHI announced that we will be feeding 1,600 students each week at the Mcedo Beijing School, Bethany Education Center and Destiny Junior Academy in Nairobi, Kenya starting in April.
Students in Rawkawro, Kenya continue to receive the good news of the gospel, and food, every Sunday!
HHI distributes approximately 7 days worth of lunches
to students each week in Rakwaro, Kenya!
The HHI Child Sponsorship Program started with children from the Rakwaro, Kenya village. While the quality of this 2019 trip video is not great, the strong, sweet voices of the children our Volunteers went to visit is clear: "We are so happy to welcome you to our school. Our guest, you know we love you!"
In 2020, the Lord opened an opportunity for HHI to expand the Child Sponsorship program into Andhra Pradesh, India. This trip video shows the children at the Bethany Children's Home during our scouting trip in 2019. If you would like to sponsor one of these children, please see the children above who have a "#I" in front of their sponsorship number.
In 2021, HHI was asked if we would support 38 children from the Bethany Education Centre (BEC) in the Kawangware slum and 5 children from the Destiny Junior Academy (DJA) in the Mathare slum of Nairobi, Kenya. BEC serves about 650 students, feeds the children a hot breakfast and lunch (which for most students is the only meal they receive during the day), and teaches about Jesus on a daily basis. As of March 2022, we announced a new Saturday Feed Program in Nairobi, which is expected to feed 1,600 students (from Mcedo Beijing School, BEC and DJA) each week, which is >80k meals by the end of the year!

The Child Sponsorship Program provides funding for children 14 years old or younger to receive food, education and the good news of the gospel. Sponsors commit to providing $38 a month to support their Sponsored Child through the program.
Currently, we serve close to 200 students through global partners at three locations overseas! We started the Program in 2016 with a handful of children from Rakwaro, Kenya. However, by God's grace, we expanded the program in 2020 into Andhra Pradesh, India and in 2021 to Kawangware, a slum in Nairobi, Kenya.
Your sponsored child will receive nutritional meals, age appropriate schooling, a school uniform (where applicable) and learn about the good news of Jesus.
You will receive regular emails and/or photos from your sponsored child and have the opportunity to join us on a future mission trip to the village!
The Scholarship Program provides funding to students who have completed high school and are ready to pursue their higher education at either a trade school or university.
