Bryce Homes Kenya Update
October 201
9

 

Several miles away from the capital city of Kenya in a remote village is the home of Benter. As you enter the non-gated home, you quickly notice the void left by the demise of the former family’s sole breadwinner. Benter is a young widow living with her six children who look upon her for food, clothing and education. When you look at the children, what comes to mind is the future potential of these partial orphaned children. An interview with Benter reveals the painful experience in her struggle to fend for the family. To be precise, it has been a poverty stricken home.


Widow Benter


Throughout the interview, she mentions a program [Bryce Homes] which she testifies brought a new lease of life to her and her children. One wonders how desperate her life had become because of the death of the children’s father. Nearly all the assets she possesses now are from Bryce Homes gifts. Some of these include a durable house, permanent pit latrine and a water reservoir [tank] in which she harvests and keeps rainwater for domestic use.

In her hustle for her daily bread, she points at some of the bruises she had to bear while engaging in the strenuous economic activities such as felling down of trees to make charcoal for sale as fuel for domestic use.

 You could be reading about this story for the first time and wondering how the living standard of Benter, like many other widows, has gradually improved for the better.  This report would be incomplete without the mention of the actual genesis of Bryce Homes Program in Kenya. This program began when Roger Oakland from Understand The Times made a trip to Kenya nine years ago. He was touched when he saw the sorry condition of many widows in our area. He met Pastor Achilla who was later mandated with the duty to pioneer the program in the land. Many lives have changed for the better since the program has introduced Small Business Opportunities to instill self-sustainability.

Right now, the program oversees 33 homes dubbed as Bryce Homes. The strides made have been immense. Due to the common social challenges that most of these homes go through, the program has incorporated two pastors [Pastor Lucas and Pastor Lawrence] who mainly give spiritual counseling to the widows and their children. Generally, the entire Bryce Homes family is greatly encouraged.

 


Some of the widows in Bryce Homes live in a village as immediate neighbors.
They are very friendly to one another and embrace fellowshipping together.

As the secretary in this Program, I would like to encourage the entire community of readers to keep supporting these needy children of God at such a time as this. As the Lord may make resources available, we could help more of the widows to become self-sustainable by introducing them into agriculture and business where possible. Thank you all and receive the warmest of greetings from the larger family of Bryce Homes Kenya.

Lukio
