Needed updates and maintenance to our athletic facilities at the DePaul Centre will engage the local youth and our seminarians.

Installation of Solar Power Systems–$16,064

New solar power systems will allow us to take advantage of Kenya’s abundant sunny conditions, providing a reliable source of clean renewable energy.

Maintenance of the Poultry Farm at DePaul Centre–$9,848

The poultry farm at DePaul Centre helps feed the Vincentians, our seminarians, and the local population.

Immediate Needs: $135,000

At age 15, Rose Wanjiku, a student at Batian Secondary School, lost her parents and was left to the mercy of well-wishers when her own extended family was unable or unwilling to care for her and her two brothers.

Providing assistance with school fees and other needs, the Vincentians intervened to assist Rose, her siblings, and her caretaker, a family friend who was already struggling to provide for herself and her own family.

In Kenya and Uganda, young people like Rose struggle every day in a challenging econonic environment, often with no safety net when tragedy strikes a family.

Please make a gift to this year’s Kenya Appeal and help us support the children, women, and elderly who are suffering and abandoned in Africa.
