Welcome to Blessings Hope Educational Centre, we are a Christian based school located at Birunda, the undulating slopes of the beautiful Mt. Elgon. It’s about 20 kilometers from Kitale town and 15 Minutes drive from Kitale Air Strip.
Most occupants of Birunda are people who were affected by 1990 and 2007 instigated clashes on the slops of mount Elgon. During this clashes which were tribal in nature, many people lost their families, kids and dependents.
It was therefore in the year 2010 Pastor Samuel started the school and opened doors to some of the destitute and orphaned children of Birunda area.
Blessings Hope Educational Centre it has got 400 children, both girls and boys, most of them are orphans, destitute and from poor families. The community has got large who are still starving and willing to join the school, but due to low income and limit of finances, we have limited the number and the rest we have put them in waiting list as we also keep trusting upon the Lord to supply enough income and the needed material.
The school is situated in a relatively poor area where the big percentage of people struggle to make a living. HIV /AIDS, poverty, poor health and massive unemployment are the main challenges people meet on daily basis. Quite a lot of children are orphans or live in families that are not able to care for them of all.
