Where Are We Helping
Samson & Gladys
In Maliki Village, Kenya Heart 2 Heart Hand N Hand supports partners, Samson and Gladys with projects like clean water well creation, sustainable farming projects, community education and basic needs for the children in His Family Youth Center. We have several outreach programs planned for the future that are intended to improve the lives of the community members here. Monthly support for staff, food, education and hygiene products are needed for the children of His Family Youth Center in Kenya, Africa. H2H is praying for those wanting to help support our awesome staff in Maliki Village, Kenya as they take care of these orphan children.
His Family Youth Center Staff
Heart to Heart Initiative advocates for loving and caring families that create a healthy atmosphere for their members to proudly enjoy. We are focused on preserving families and protecting children, making domestic violence and child abuse history in Uganda. In Uganda we are working towards creating a Heart 2 Heart transition Home for 3-17 year olds that are rescued from traumatic situations. The transition home will be all about reconciliation for families. Staff and supplies will be needed in the future and funds are needed now to plaster the walls to make this building a functioning transition home.
In Kampala, Uganda H2H works with partners, Franklyn and Sarah Kasozi, to assist with outreach programs that help the children that are being abused, abandoned and neglected. The compassion and dedication that Franklyn and Sarah have is amazing and their efforts are making a difference. Learn more about what Franklyn and Sarah are doing to help these children on their website. http://www.heart2heartinitiative.org
What We Do
Clean Water Wells
H2H is dedicated to helping African communites create wells that produce clean water. The water sources in Africa are contaminated and sometimes very far away. The cost of a clean water well is about $6,000.00 US dollars which will include a 500 gallon holding tank and all other needed items for the water to be used.
Sustainable Food Sources
H2H recognized a need for sustainable food sources for African communities. H2H has rented land for gardens, seeds, hand tools and training in agriculture. They were able to grow maize/corn, cabbage, potatoes, tomatoes and other vegetables. We have also purchased protein sources like chickens, goats, quail and lamb to raise and breed for future generations.
Providing Medical Supplies
Medical supplies, hygiene products, doctor visits and transportation to the doctor are all very costly in Africa. Many children are born with AIDS or have serious medical problems and are in great need of medicine and doctor visits. H2H welcomes volunteers that are doctors, nurses, dentists or counselors to assist in Africa. H2H also needs donations to help these children get the medical care they need.
H2H has been working in Kenya to grow crops for the community. Seeds are needed every year to grow new crops. H2H holds “Seeds For Africa” fundraisers every year. Please support H2H in sending seeds to Africa. This program provides nutrition, education, and stability to the local community.
Housing For Orphans
H2H supports an orphanage in Kenya, Africa. This orphanage houses 20 children and has 4 outreach children. Money for school fees, clothing and basic needs is needed to support these children. These children can be sponsored monthly with a year commitment as a God Parent. Contact H2H to learn more about these children or go the the donation page to sponsor a child in need.
H2H is also raising funds to create a transition home in Uganda for children ages 3-17 that have been rescued from traumatic situations. Staff and supplies will be needed in the future and funds are needed now to plaster the walls to make this building a functioning transition home.
Opportunity to Learn
Educating a child, empowers a child. Many children in Africa do not have the opportunity to go to school. Some schools consist of children using sticks to draw letters and numbers in the dirt. Basic school supplies are very appreciated by the children in Africa. H2H is committed to providing basic school supplies and clothing so children can attend school. Donations of items or money to buy them is greatly appreciated. Contact H2H to donate items in needed.
