Children Sharing a Meal
O V C stands for orphans and vulnerable children.
Most of these children live in the streets as a result of various reasons e. g abandonment by their families,death of parents, separation of their parents, unresolved conflicts within families, poverty, etc.
  • Our vision :
Empower children from underprivileged families for realization and fulfillment of life.
  • Our Vision :
To enable the underprivileged children to face life through provision of holistic education founded on Christian principles.
•    Achievements

1.    Over two hundred children have been fed within the Diocese/Kirinyaga County.
2.    Children have been visited individually and in groups in the streets of Kagumo, Kerugoya, Kutus, Ngurubani, Makutano and Sagana. The purpose of the visit is to identify their problems and needs, thus assuring them of God’s love and that He is able to meet their needs if they learn to trust and obey Him. It is unfortunate that the largest percent of these children are boys. This answers the question, “where is the boy child?" He is in the street.
3.    We have been able to offer both individual and group counselling to those children with life issues.
4.    Children have amended their behaviour and there is progress both spiritually and socially.
5.    There is increase in behaviour change that has enabled children to cope with life and to interact well with otherchildren in school. We have children both in primary and secondary schools.
6.    In December 2019 we had Christmas celebration in all our six feeding stations and every child appreciated the gifts presented to them including special dish.

•    2020 O V C programme

We have weekly progamme for the department whereby the coordinator is able to visit the children in the streets and attend the feeding programme. This works as follows:
Tuesdays-Kutus at Diocesan office ground
Wednesdays -Kerugoya and Kagumo at St. Thomas Cathedral and St John’s church Kagumo
Thursdays-Ngurubani at St Luke’s Wanguru church ground.
Fridays-Makutano and Saganaat AckKaminjichurc and AckSagana town church.
From 15th to 18th December 2020, we shall hold a Christmas party for the children in every feeding Centre.

Future plans
The coordinator future plan is to network with other dioceses with similar progamme in order to learn what they do differently from us.
•    Will the department remain relevant even at this time of covid19?
We live by faith but not by sight. We are praying for our children without ceasing. The coordinator is using human resource to encourage children that all will be well. We are in captivity for a while and things will be back to normal.

•    Conclusion:
There is hope for the future and very soon we shall be giving new testimony that we are remnant of corona virus.
