Join us for Like a Mother's Love (virtual, of course!)

Friday, May 7 at 7:30

 

The event of the year is fast approaching! And we want you to be there. We are disappointed that we cannot meet in person but are very excited for the potential for this year's event on Zoom. This virtual format allows for out of town supporters to join us for the first time!  The event will be 45 minutes.

Here is what we have planned:

  • Raise funds just by showing up!
    A few key donors will give $25 to Speroway for Home of Grace for every Zoom participant! Invite your friends and watch the numbers grow!
  • Great stories of hope
    You will see video presentations from the children and staff, as well as from one of our volunteers.
  • Online Auction
    Coinciding with the event will be an auction of curated, hand-made pieces by Home of Grace supporters. Each item has been made specifically for our event — perfect for Mother's Day! Check out www.hogcc.org and our Facebook and Instagram (New!) pages for details and photos. The auction will open two weeks before our Mother's Love event.
  • Opportunity to give
    Home of Grace relies exclusively on donor support for its operation. As with so many organizations, the pandemic increased operating expenses. Help give a child hope for the future with education, healthcare and shelter.
  • Time to chat
    A highlight of our annual fundraiser is to catch up with friends and meet new ones.  We will open up the zoom screens after formal presentations for you to chat and ask questions. It will be like being there in person - almost!

Speroway supports orphaned and disadvantaged children and youth through the Home of Grace care center in rural western Kenya by providing a safe and loving environment, daily nutritious meals, access to medical care, and an education.

Children at Home of Grace are orphans, referred by the Kenyan children’s department, or abandoned at the doorstep by their relatives.

We are committed to contributing to the well-being of those at Home of Grace and children and youth in the surrounding communities that need it the most.

The children continue to be well during the COVID-19 emergency, but the need for your support continues.

In fact, the need is more urgent. Prices are rising, especially for food, as regular markets are closed. That means that the cost for day-to-day operations is growing and the need for emergency relief in the community is growing, too.

 

Community Outreach

We provide for these needs through three programs:

  • Residential care: Orphans and vulnerable children living at the Centre are given shelter, a loving and supportive environment, food, basic medical care and access to an education. Whenever possible, staff work to maintain contact with extended families to ease future re-integration into the community.
  • Community Outreach: Families of identified children in the community receive at-home support, including tuition support and other occasional support to supplement food budgets.
  • Lunch Feeding Program: Children in need identified by local schools and community leaders are fed lunch, to improve learning.

The majority of children arrive at Home of Grace weak and malnourished. We provide daily nutritious meals so that children can have the nutrients needed to be physically and mentally strong, concentrate in school, and have an opportunity at a better future.

Education

We focus on increasing children’s access to quality education at Home of Grace and communities, by providing tuition support, school supplies, and other education fees. By giving the gift of education, you invest in a child’s future. Through education, these children can grow up to be productive, responsible members of their community.

These are challenging times for all of us. We have seen so many stresses added to our daily lives. But we ask you to please consider making a donation today as a way of offering hope to those who are often forgotten — orphaned and vulnerable children in such an impoverished part of the world.
