Ever since my dad started going to Africa to train
pastors and leaders in life skills and effective ministry, the plight
of the street children has also been very much on both our hearts.
My Dad was convinced that there surely was a
workable way to also reach out to street children,
to both care for and train them in practical life skills.
“Dad,” I said, “you come up with an idea
and I will help you make it work!”
So when in 2004, my dad told me of a house outside of Kitale
in the Rift Valley in Kenya, that was standing empty
and that we could use with the owner’s permission,
I knew that my dream had come true …
I accompanied my dad on his very next trip
and the first Street Kids Center was opened.
KIDSWORLD became ‘alive!’
