After an open meeting with the pastors, leaders and elders of Khalwenge
in which their desire for change and willingness to do what is necessary,
Covenant Ministries and Kidsworld decided to spearhead a development
project to help the people of Khalwenge uplift and develop their village through
agricultural & infrastructure development, educational training & resources,
as well as skills and managerial training for the whole village.

… and in particular to help the village develop their future…
through the Kidsworld Creative Training project.

Organic Farming

KHALWENGE – Organic Agricultural development

One of our first challenges was to deal with the subsistence farming practices.
With the support of Step30 Taiwan, we enrolled 7 young men from Khalwenge
at the Organics 4 Orphans Agricultural Centre in the Kitale district, with the
specific intention that after their training they would start Organic Farming
whilst also training local farmers in productive, organic farming methods.

After completing their course, they started planting without delay, and within
only 9 months, the first ‘fruits’ of their labour are ready for picking!
Much still needs to be done, but their training is bearing fruit,
and the local farmers are eager to learn.

At the beginning of 2003, I was invited by Pastor Edward Khaoya to speak at his church
that was meeting in a small room in Matisi in the Kitale district, where I ministered on
‘God wants to be part of what we do’
and … out of that small meeting, in that small church, much was about to develop.

In 2004 Kidsworld started ‘Covenant Home’ in Livayo, Kitale, in a rather sad building.
As this building was simply not adequate, we continued looking for better and safer premises.

Two years later, not far away, we were able to move to an new rented building.
Around this time pastor Edward, who made it his goal to obtain external funding,
and through Neighbours Aid Australia, we could continue to develop Covenant Home.

The Street Kids at Kidsworld Covenant Home steadily increased to well over 30 kids,
and it was a great blessing that Neighbour Aid said they wanted to build their
own home for the kids and also to take over the administration of the home,
with pastor Edward being appointed to lead the new project
‘Kitale Family House of Hope’.

At Kidsworld we were excited about this development, as
this would allow us to continue with our original vision, of starting …
new Kidsworld projects, that are able to develop and grow on their own.

At the new home, Kidsworld assisted in the building of the kitchen, with stove
and equipment, as well as with the construction of temporary school rooms,
until a new school building was erected on a separate property.

15 years after meeting and ministering in Pastor Edward’s humble one room church,
I was blessed to be invited to minister in one of the classrooms of the
‘House of hope Academy’
