This is a very independent center. They have built a full scale clinic and residence for a doctor. They have also completed an administrative building.
Kisumu has the highest ratio of AIDS in Kenya. There are hundreds of AIDS orphans in the city of Kisumu and in the outlying areas of the district. The Bar-Korumba Hope Center, as it is known, is our only secondary school. The committee at this center is very intentional and organized in their planning and implementation of this Hope Center. They have done an excellent job of making this a successful and growing school.
There are many needs at this center. One of their greatest concerns is for the young girls who are at risk from AIDS as well as the many orphans. This area used to have a strong Muslim influence but in the past few years many people have turned to Christ.
The school needs more classrooms built along with a chemistry and computer lab to meet the requirements of a secondary school by the Kenya government.
