Our goal is to raise a group of people who will gradually develop a transformed mind-set; a self-aware people empowered to confidently tap into their full potential with renewed hope and a zeal to impact the world around them for better. It’s a centre for hope and a place for discipleship.

This as a residential program consisting of a Men’s Centre and a Women and children’s Centre. Here, men and women struggling with addictions and life controlling problems are supported to overcome their habits and are discipled using Christian based curriculums.
Under the residential is a Mental Health Clinic to support individuals with mental related illnesses. Many a time some people dealing with addictions are mentally affected by the substances they use; this clinic is for them. The clinic will also be open to individuals whose illnesses are resulting from past trauma and other causes.
The centre has a non-residential arm which focuses on reaching out to individuals that may not necessarily be able to join a residential program or individuals who by the nature of their demographic do not need a residential approach but rather a preventative and knowledge gaining approach. Therefore, through outreaches to schools, prisons and streets, Living Free trainings in institutions and churches and teaching and discipleship through support groups in the community, these groups of people are reached.
This comprises of a thrift store, a farm for crops and animals, Produce handling and Storage, and a microfinance Sacco/institution. This project not only ensures food supply to the Hope Village but creates sustainability for the village. It also helps in empowering individuals with skills, creates jobs and consequently reduces the unemployment gaps.
Under education we have a kindergarten, primary school, secondary/high school and a vocational institute offering a quality education that produces creative thinkers through thought-provoking curriculums. The education arm also includes a Leadership Academy where leaders are disciple and groomed into leaders with a heart to serve. The schools section is to house its own health facility/clinic, play area/sports centre and Church.
