What does every child in the world have in common? The need to be loved and to enjoy the freedom of being a kid! Unfortunately for many children, especially for those whose lives have been impacted by HIV and AIDS, this isn’t always the reality.
Guardians of Hope (GoH), is a program of CBM which works to improve the lives of those affected or infected by HIV and AIDS around the world – many of whom are orphaned children. GoH in partnership with national churches has been helping to change lives for almost a decade, offering hope and help in desperate circumstances – training in HIV and AIDS issues, reducing stigma and discrimination, improving health and food security and helping to pay school fees.
Celebrating the first decade
For the 10th anniversary of Guardians of Hope in Kenya, CBM together with its church partners is launching a new initiative just for the kids: Kamp Tumaini! Canadians have the chance to volunteer for two weeks on a short-term mission team in Kenya as a Camp Leader in partnership with Kenyan volunteers.
Through these daycamps, orphaned children of the GoH program will get the chance to be kids, to experience the fun and joy of summer camp, to get to know children who share a similar journey, and to experience the love and compassion of caring camp leaders.
How it works
With the participation and funds raised by every Canadian volunteer, orphaned children and Kenyan volunteers will have the opportunity to participate. Together we will experience God’s love in word and deed.
The first camp in August 2015 was a huge success and we are looking forward to 2016 and 2017!
We can make these camps a reality!
