Background Information


Before Lift the Children started to support Christ the Hope Children's Rescue Centre,  it had numerous challenges. Children went without food, they were constantly send out of school, and the centre struggled to keep up with rent and other bills. Although Teresia the founder has real passion and concern for the vulnerable and orphaned children, she needed help to actualize her work. Lift the Children stepped in to provide part of the finances required to stabilize the operations. Through this support, the orphanage has been able provide sufficient beds, as well as clean and well kept spaces where children live comfortably and can attend school. Christ the Hope Children's Rescue Centre is located in Kayole, a place where majority of people lack employment and depend on small businesses, casual jobs, and often live on below 2 dollars a day.
