Extreme Poverty Be A HEROAverage Gross National Income for every man, women, and child in America is $35,060. World Development Bank, 2003.

  • Of the 24 mostly Western Developed Nations (including NA, Western Europe, Australia & New Zealand etc.)  Population of 900 million, the GNI is $27,000 USD
  • Compare this to the fact that 1.2 billion people live on under $1.00 a day and 2.7 billion people live on under $2.00 USD a day.
  • 500 million people are hungry and another 500 million are so poor that they don’t consume enough food to render them productive.
  • Because of poverty 33,000 children (mostly under-five-year-olds) die every day due to preventable diseases – diarrhea, measles, malaria, and malnutrition – that is more than one child dying every 3 seconds.
  • 55% of all child deaths (17 million deaths a year) are just because the children are hungry.
  • Poverty is at the root of most of that which contributes to 'children becoming at risk'.

Heroes of the Nation, through its “Village Concept” is developing its orphanages with “home-based” care programs that help to prevent the disruption of the family unit that is essential to Kenyan life.  The “Village Concept”, as part of the health-care program, includes the development of resource centers in rural areas that contain videos and information about the AIDS virus and its prevention.  HOTN believes that education leads to hope, and hope leads to action.

The Heroes of the Nation School, has been operational since 2002 and currently has 534 students in primary and high school. This element of the project is very important to the development of the community for the following reasons:

The children of the community attend HOTN for schooling for the following reasons:
i)    the standard of education is very high;
ii)   there is a boarding school available because it is too far to travel daily;
iii)  it is the only boarding school in a 10 km radius;
iv)  the children are fed a nutritious diet enabling them to concentrate;
v)   the location of the school is a long way from bad influences eg. drugs/alcohol, etcetera;
vi)  the school is needed because nearest town is 7 km away.
