India Community Centre - Telpura Be A HERO

City:  Telpura, India
Project: Community Centre/Medical Clinic/Convention Facility
Partner: Bel Vikas Kendra

The Community Centre/Convention Facility is seen as a vehicle to transform society by taking strategic measures to reduce poverty and increase opportunities, particularly for destitute children and families.  A medical clinic will provide a much needed fully stocked and staffed clinic for this region.  The school would provide access to education in this impoverished area.  

Community Centre: This will provide a location for medical clinics; adult education classes; health seminars; tutoring and meals for children; recreational and other community activities.  These classes and clinics will contribute to an improvement in the over-all well being of the community, providing hope for a better tomorrow. The Convention Facility will host conferences, seminars and retreats for leaders, youth and other groups, providing both a much-needed resource, and generating income for the programs.

Kenya Heroes of the Nation Boys Accomodation Be A HERO

City: Nyahururu, Kenya
Project: Boys's Home
Partner: Heroes of the Nation

January 21, 2006 was a very joyous day at Heroes of the Nation as the older boys moved into their new dormitory. Those moving over from the old site used the donkey and our Land Cruiser to move mattresses and belongings. An atmosphere of celebration prevailed, with much laughing and fun.

Completion of this new dormitory allowed Heroes of the Nation to take in more orphaned children. On Monday morning the new children arrived. It was precious to see the boys greet and welcome the new orphans – they know what it is like to be a newcomer, and so went the extra mile to be warm, helpful and friendly. The “old hands” were eager to show the new boys around, helping them settle into the dorm, and quickly involving them in games and activities.
