Gifts from the Heart
All girls deserve a full and happy life with an education. Girls in rural Kenya, an area plagued with abject poverty and drought, often are traded as child brides for a dowry of livestock. Girls who refuse forced marriage and the painful procedure of FGM, a traditional rite of passage, find sanctuary in the Pokot Kenyan Methodist Church where they are safe to continue their schooling.
The Kenyan Methodist Women are now working to build a shelter to give these girls a safe place to live and go to school in a supportive community. The sustainable shelter with 44 beds, a kitchen, clinic, library, chapel and security fence will be built on 40 acres of the church grounds.
