Transcripts - Nakuru boy’s home update june 2011

  • 1. Nakuru Boy’s Home <br />Nakuru, Kenya<br /> The power of hope…<br />Prepared by<br />Dave Parker<br />Updated June 2011<br />
  • 2. In Feb. of 2009 our family visited Kenya for the first time. My heart was turned upside down seeing, first hand, the devastation of poverty. The feeding lines for the village children and the conditions of the orphanages were defining moments of my life. <br />When I met the boys of Nakuru and heard their story of surviving a horrible deadly uprising after the Presidential election in Jan. of 2008, where they stood together valiantly defending their home, I knew I was called to help make a better place for them. Their current home is right in the middle of the city where for 30+ days violent killings took place as tribes rose up against each other literally on the street in front in front of their home. God’s hand of protection was obviously on them because all the buildings within a few feet of their home and for blocks were burned to the ground.<br />We learned that 7 acres of land up on a beautiful hillside had already been donated for a new home but there were no funds available to actually build the home. It has been my personal mission to raise these funds and I am pleased to say that most of the home has now been completed. <br />If you want to join me and my business partner, Grant MacQuilkan and our wives in the final phase of fundraising, the last slide has more information on how you can donate. We are honored to have the opportunity to raise the awareness of a group of awesome boys on the other side of the world!<br />Dave<br />
  • 3. Current Home Living conditions<br />Can you see the springs hanging down from the top bunks? As Americans we see this as atrocious conditions. Yet . . .<br />the boys are just glad to have a place to lay their heads. <br />It’s much better than the rocky ground on the streets of Nukuru!<br />
  • 4. Kitchen<br />Dorm<br />Current Home<br />Toilets, play area, water tank<br />The neighborhood <br />Note the raw sewage ditch <br />at the boys feet.<br />
  • 5. the amazing boys of nakuru<br />Off the streets and in a safe place with food, a roof over their heads, adults who care about them and sponsors who financially see that their basic needs are met – these <br />boys have more than most in their country. <br />Now let’s give them more than they could even imagine . . . <br />A safe place out of the city!<br />
  • 6. February 2009<br />When we visited the site during our first visit to Kenya in early 2009 David Hatley took our team to the property and shared the vision of new boys home. <br />Since that time, I have not been able to get this project off my mind. I live with the reality that I can’t save the world but I can do something!<br />Here the boys would learn to garden, farm and weld giving them skills to provide for themselves.<br />
  • 7. the first walls<br />Throughout history walls have represented safety, security, defense, protection, status and the division between that which is outside and inside. <br />Inside these walls will be a home. <br />
  • 8. Exterior Wall completed Fall of 2009<br />On my trip in Oct. 2009, Pastor Anthony shows me where the various buildings will be located.<br />
  • 9. A look inside the walls<br />It was exciting to see the progress during my next trip in September 2010. The first two dorms were finished, the kitchen was nearly complete, the showers and “drop toilets” were started and ground was broken on the common area to be used as the dining hall. Even more has happened since then.<br />The following slides show all the completed buildings and will give you a good idea of their location.<br />Nothing wasted: Note that the unused dirt within the walls was used to grow the first crops on the property.<br />
  • 10. Dorm 1 completed Summer of 2010<br /> With the generous gift from acorporate donor, the first dorm was started months in advance of the initial plan. The dorms are spacious enough to sleep 20 boys.<br />
  • 11. Dorm 2 completed Summer 2010<br />Dorm 1<br />Dorm 2<br />The interior is simple and includes the standard design ceiling you find in Kenya.<br />Side of Dorm 2 & site of Living Room / Dining Hall<br />
  • 12. Kitchen was started in Summer 2010<br />The kitchen features a storage area, plenty of windows to vent out the smoke from the “open charcoal fire” on which they cook.<br />
  • 13. Kitchen completed Fall 2010<br />
  • 14. Toilets & Showers completed <br />Winter 2011<br />Kitchen<br /> Clean water is provided from thecommunity well which sits on the hill on the adjacent property. This water will be used for irrigation, drinking, showers… aka sponge baths and cooking.<br />Clean Water will cut down on disease and illness!<br />Dorm 2 * Showers * Toilets<br />Dorm 2 Toilets <br />
