Ebenezer New Life Center
Ebenezer has a main centre which today consists of orphanage, pre-school, primary school, high school and a program for widows. In addition to this we have a centre for street boys (Tido) and a primary school (Ayweyo) some distance from the main centre, but which is regarded as a part of Ebenezer New Life Centre. Winnie and Silas Owiti are the leaders for Ebenezer New Life Centre.
Approximately 600 children live here, receiving schooling (all the way from pre-school to high school), food, clothing and shelter. These children are orphans without any close relatives to take care of them. In addition to the children staying at the orphanage, 400 children from the area come every day to get schooling and food. This means that a total of approx. 1000 children get food and schooling daily at the centre.
The school is a part of Ebenezer New Life Centre. Here approx. 240 children receive schooling and food. After they have finished primary school, the children are given the opportunity of going to the high school at Ebenezer’s main centre in Kisumu.
After finishing high school, our goal is to support all the young people who have the ability and wish to carry on with a higher education at universities, colleges or other trades to achieve their goal. This is a major challenge, as higher education in Kenya is expensive. However, we strive to provide this opportunity for as many as we possibly can.
