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 help support 38 children from the Bethany Education Centre (BEC) in Kawangware (e.g. a slum in Nairobi, Kenya) which serves about 650 students. BEC 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. If you would like to sponsor one of these children, please see the children above who have a "#N" in front of their sponsorship number.
Your sponsored child will receive at least two nutritional meals a day, proper schooling, a school uniform 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!
We currently have over 160 children in the program who are spread across three locations, Andhra Pradesh, India (as of 2020), Nairobi, Kenya (as of April 2021) and Rakwaro, Kenya!
