Ololtoto was started in
1985, and is the oldest of our Hope Centers. It has the infrastructure of a chapel,
clinic, full primary school with teacher’s housing units, and a windmill that pumps water to two storage tanks before it runs by gravity through pipes to the clinic, kitchen and teacher’s
Besides the regular Sunday services, the
chapel holds other activities including Sunday school, Bible Fellowships, Saturday Clubs, and other programs that benefit children and their
families. Our pastor visits the surrounding villages every day to help and encourage the people.
Ololtoto’s clinic has become very important
to the Maasai community. The clinic includes both curative and preventative medicine. The nurse takes time to create awareness among the people of
the need for good hygiene, sanitation, food and diet.
Our Primary school provides education to
over 500 children under the Kenya Government curriculum of education. Two dormitories have been built for the 100 boys and girls who need such help in in
order to attend school. Several of our sponsored children attend high school in the locality.
We have begun a Food for Work program to
help those who are able bodied and willing to work. They maintain roads in the Hope Center, assist the teams who come to work and help with other daily tasks. They receive food in payment for their work, which is restoring dignity to men who struggle to provide even
such basics for their family, and to widows who need help, but have no one to provide for them.
Income generation projects are helping many
widows, and men with
families to support.
