Supplies Help Start New School Year

School is back in session in India. The two month summer (hot season) break began in the middle of April but now the seasonal temperatures have moderated to where the students can return to their studies. Children's Hope International Foundation's Partners in Hope have helped with the kick-off to a new year by supplying hundreds of children with books and school supplies.

These students are from of the poor fishing villages and slums on the east- central coast of India. Many of them are the first in their families to attend school. The free education offered by Mission to the Nations gives the children an opportunity to work their way out of the deep generational poverty.

Chickens in Africa Come to Roost

feeeding timefor new hens
We’re hearing the clucking sound of chickens again at Bright Hope School in Ethiopia. Over 500 laying hens were delivered this week to replace the chickens sold-off at Christmas time. The sale provided a nice profit for the Bright Hope School but then they encountered delays in receiving a new flock. The eggs help provide better nutrition for the poorest of the students and income for the school.  

Since hens lay eggs at a productive level for only two years, they are then sold-off and replaced by higher producing hens. As the operation of the Bright Hope farm becomes more proficient, the gaps in egg production should be minimized.

Vegetable crops continue to
flourish in Ethiopian sunshine
Also, the vegetable crops on the cultivated land continue to thrive. The Addis Ababa climate and the Bright Hope soil seem to be a good combination for growing a variety of healthy vegetables in their sustainable garden food project. 
Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support of the children of Bright Hope School.

Please consider a one time or monthly donation to help supplement the farm operation.

the expansion of Alenah's Home

Around 200 people gathered on Friday to tour the newest section of Alenah’s Home in Beijing. The home, named after Alenah Rogers, a 23-month-old girl adopted from China who was killed in a tragic 2003 flood on a Kansas Highway, takes-in children from Chinese orphanages that need medical care only available in Beijing.

This expanded area of Alenah’s Home will provide the space needed to care for over 30 orphaned children. By rehabbing an identical house next door and merging the two court yards, the now complete Alenah’s Home has additional bedrooms, play area, and therapy room. The new extension also has boarding rooms for the care givers as well as bedrooms for short-term volunteers and visiting medical professionals.

The children recovering from surgery and their care givers moved into the first section of Alenah’s Home in June 2011. Children’s Hope orchestrated 300 surgeries for Chinese children in 2011, over 5000 operations in China since 2001.
