The video spot supports Island of Hope, a self-sufficient and self-sustainable community center, which we have been creating on Rusinga Island in Kenya. The project was launched in 2003. Nowadays, it is daily visited by over 400 children and it consists of an orphanage for 72 children aged 3 to 18, Montessori kindergarten for 90 children, elementary school for 300 children, educational center with a library, workroom for making soapstone products, health clinic for approximately 10 000 patients from the area, and a farm with an irrigation system, fruit trees, as well as fish and poultry breeding. We are also in the process of building a boarding high school for 120 students.
The Club of Friends of Island of Hope is looking for new volunteers, sponsors, and friends who would like to take an active part in creating this development project and thus help it head towards self-efficiency and self-sufficiency. Pass it on, thank you!
