Off to Garissa in the Morning!

Image

It’s almost 9pm here in Thika, Kenya and we leave for Garissa in less than 9 hours! Garissa is a 6 hour drive away and only 50km outside of Dadaab, Kenya…the largest refugee camp in the world. Garissa is a very dangerous place right as well. There is a lot of security concerns there. We have been blessed to meet a local pastor who will be looking after us while we are there. Please say a prayer for us!

God Bless You All!

The Children of Amri:

Amri Children’s School…a peaceful and inspiring place to 240 children who are either orphans, abandoned, or destitute (or all of these) in Kikuyu, Kenya, Africa. Pastor Joel Nganyi is doing incredible work for these children and offers something they desperately need: HOPE. Watch this powerful video and witness the meager conditions and resources that Amri School operates within. They have very little, but the joy of the children is endless. After viewing the video, if you can donate anything large or small, here is a list of needs and a dollar amount associated with that item:
**SHOES for the children: 400 Kenya Shillings(KSh) per pair ( $5.00 USD)
**DESKS for each  classroom: approx 4,000 KSh per desk ($50.00 USD)

Megan’s House Worldwide, Inc will be working collectively with Amri School to build sustainability with their programs and brainstorm ways to make the school more self sufficient.

Non-Profit Status filed…Megan’s House Worldwide, Inc

I am passionate about affecting change, I am passionate about my relationship with Jesus, I am passionate about helping others…but my weakest trait, I admit, is my talent for administrative duties 🙂 That’s where LegalZoom.com comes to the rescue! The process of securing and setting up a 501(c)3 non-profit was very easy with their help!
The name has been secured and we are moving forward with the process of official non-profit status…so now all of your donations will be tax deductible 🙂
Hallelujah! Now we can get on with saving the people of Somalia and still get a tax break 🙂 Amen!
