Beldon Okeyo – SeedPower Kenya
Under the leadership of Beldon Okeyo and Peter Opinya, SeedPower Education Center’s mission is to provide tuition-free, Christian-based education to children with special needs, as well as to orphans and children at risk in the rural communities of Kenya. Beldon and his team value and treat each child as a viable seed with the potential to grow into responsible members of the community…and ultimately, into world changers. They provide access to safe learning opportunities that are life-saving and life-sustaining.
Kenya’s deficient educational policies make accessing basic education for vulnerable children a nightmare. Those from rural Kenya are the worst affected. The prevailing economic status makes early learning almost a luxury and an afterthought for most at-risk children. Ignorance mixed with barbaric cultural beliefs make living a nightmare in some villages for children with special needs. Due to the children’s special needs, these children are viewed as a curse by people, frequently hidden and treated poorly. HIV/AIDs and other deadly diseases have also contributed to children being orphaned and homeless. Seedpower Education Center steps forward to offer a remedy for this unfortunate situation.
To accomplish this, we welcome friends, donors, partners and sponsors to join our team. We seek and will appreciate your support in any form. Every beneficiary in our program will be better equipped, educated and empowered to begin the journey of economically and socially improving their lives and their communities. Making this a reality will be our humble contribution in making this world a better place.
At Seedpower, we undertake to uphold the highest levels of accountability. For this reason, we have partnered with Bridge the Gap International, Inc., a twenty-five year old missions service organization that will be handling all US funds given to support SeedPower Education Center. We thank you in advance for your generous support of this ministry.
