May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13 NIV

During our recent geographical expansion into a new location, we found many students being sent home from secondary school due to their families not being able to pay school fees. This was a wide open door for us to start granting scholarships to Secondary School students in hopes that these students will be well prepared to enter into Vocational Training when they complete their Secondary Education. Our HOPE for the future lies in the current and future education of these boys and girls at Kirenga Secondary Schools. Our dream is that each of these children of God would live up to their full potential equipped with a solid foundation of education. These kids are our long term investment and we are confident they will be a huge blessing to their community.

Grab your friends, family & coworkers and join us for a fun day of golf, games and great food AND support a wonderful cause at the same time!!

We are pleased to announce our new partnership with Word of Truth Technical & Vocational Centre located in Maai-Mahiu, Kenya. Word of Truth has been equipping Pastors and Christian Leaders for the past seven years and is now approved by the government of Kenya to offer Vocational Education and Training. In exchange for our investment in equipment for courses in Food Production, Hairdressing, ICT and Fashion Design, we will receive tuition credits for our scholarship students to attend courses. Word of Truth has also graciously welcomed us to have office space in their facility.

We are excited to now be offering entrepreneurial training to all of our past and present students as well as local pastors who will take the training to their congregations. We believe a three-pronged approach is the best way to engage in the fight to eliminate global poverty. First, we offer residents of Kiambu County Kenya scholarships for 80% of the cost of vocational training. Second, we offer microgrants to fully trained students for 50% of the cost of tools and equipment to help them get their businesses started. Third, every student now has the opportunity to receive entrepreneurial training.

Lydia is the latest recipient of a Hearts of Hope International microgrant. Lydia first received a scholarship for 80% of the cost of apprenticeship training in Embroidery. After completing her training, we dreamed with Lydia about her owning her own machine. Lydia was able to save up half the money for a second hand machine and we are thrilled to partner with her by paying for the other half. Lydia is now working out of her home as she builds her client base and is selling her embroidery work to supplement her family income. One more step in fulfilling her dreams! Lydia’s story is proof that training is the key to a dignified rise above poverty.

Training Cost: $160

Microgrant for embroidery machine: $210

Our Cost: $210 to change a life, a family, and to begin to change a community


Our mission: To glorify God by equipping residents of Kiambu County Kenya with vocational training.

We partner with community members to find dignity embracing solutions to their very real challenges.
