In pursuit of our mission to make a positive impact on the lives of children, Lift the Children has achieved a significant milestone by welcoming 398 more children into our program through the addition of 11 new children’s homes in 2023. This accomplishment stands as a testament to the unwavering support of our generous donors and advocates who believe in our cause. Today, we express our deepest gratitude to those who have made it possible to touch the lives of these children and contribute to their brighter futures.
Jon Elton Fundraising Event:
A special note of appreciation goes out to Jon Elton and all the wonderful souls that attend his musical fundraising event on August 4th, 2023. The music was wonderful and the event was a resounding success, raising enough funds to directly translate into positive change for 258 children.
Toto Angel Centre:
Located in the heart of Kanguruwe slum in Kayole Ward, Nairobi, Toto Angel Centre has undergone a complete transformation in just eight months since joining our program. Funding support from Lift the Children has not only ensured access to food and education, but has also improved the physical structures of the home and created a vibrant and child-friendly environment where the children are now thriving. In addition, the training provided to staff, including case management and documentation, has empowered them to secure additional resources, including a social worker. Elizabeth, the director of Toto Angel Centre, expresses her gratitude saying, “Thank you, Lift the Children, for your support. If it wasn’t for you, we could have been in a worse situation, especially with the economic crisis in our country.”
In Moi’s Bridge, Transzoia County, St. Miriam Children’s Home joined Lift the Children’s program in March of this year. The impact has been profound, as the children, who previously had no proper dining area and studied in a mud structure, now have a permanent stone building under construction. Lift the Children is delighted to witness the joy reflected in the smiles of these children. Every effort made is a step towards ensuring that every life counts, and we are overjoyed to have touched more lives this year and in the future.
As we reflect on the transformations at Toto Angel Centre and St. Miriam’s Children’s Home, we celebrate not only the physical changes but also the renewed hope and opportunities provided to these children. Every supporter, donor, and advocate plays a crucial role in this journey of impact. Together, we reaffirm our commitment to making a difference in the lives of children, recognizing that every life counts, and every positive change contributes to a brighter future for all. Thank you for being part of this meaningful and impactful journey with Lift the Children.
