Want to change the world? EDUCATE A GIRL!
Give an orphaned girl in Kenya a future with an education!
At Save Haven we strive to the change the lives of every child in our care as well as the community they live in, and in turn the entire world. By ensuring all 12 girls living in the Centre go to school we’re making future change for everyone!
Next year’s school fees are due by January 2, 2018!
We have 6 weeks to raise the necessary funds. Although we’ve raised a portion of the fees through local fundraising activities we are still critically short the majority of the funds, which is why we’re reaching out to all of you.
We know that $5,000 is a large number but every donation, whether $1 or $100, adds up and helps us reach our goal of sending every Safe Haven girl to school in January.
Safe Haven Care Centre is a charity dedicated to changing the lives of orphaned and abandoned children in Kisii, Kenya, Africa. Our mission is to support the children in our care so they may reach their full potential as contributing members of society and leaders in their community. In order to fulfill our mission, we have to ensure all of our children are educated, especially the girls, who in this culture, for many reasons do not get such an opportunity.
When our 14-year-old son Matthew died suddenly in April 2013, we went looking for a way to honour his memory and share our love with someone else. We started sponsoring 4 children through an Ontario couple who were running a small orphanage in Kenya.
We went to visit the children in Kenya in October 2015, and we had found our calling.
The couple running the orphanage decided to retire while we were in Kenya, and they passed along the running of it to us.
When we returned home from Kenya, we incorporated as a non-profit and started to apply for our charitable status with the CRA - which was granted to us in April 2017. We came home with a mission to make sure that all the children in our care had life-changing opportunities and a shot at the future they deserved.
