In 2008, our church became a "sister church" of the Transformational Center in Machakos, Kenya.
We began helping this ministry in 2007 and have helped build four classrooms for the church's school. With the completion of the orphanage coming in 2009 we have found and documented the need for a well to provide clean water.
In addition, the Rotary Club of Nevada County South is applying for a matching grant in the 2009-10 Rotary year. The type of grant has been identified and will consist of five local Rotary Clubs participating at $2,000 each for a combined total of $10,000 to drill a well.
The government began to put electricity in the area in the Spring of 2008. However, as of yet electricity hasn't made it to the Transformational Center. When this is done, it will open up many more opportunities for the School and the Orphanage. Currently the facilities run off of a limited amount of solar power and a new generator.
The Rotary Club of Nevada City donated $2,000 in the year of 2008 for school supplies. NCS Rotary Club donated $2,000 for the Orphanage. The NCS Rotary Club sent $350.00 to purchase their own camera, helping to keep us updated with photos of the progress.
We encourage you to get involved directly. Send your own e-mail
