Sustainability is an important consideration at Gethsemane. Our desire is to be wise stewards and efficiently use the resources that God provides and make a sustainable impact in Kenya by breaking the cycle of poverty.
We try to keep costs low in a variety of ways while still providing a quality home, quality education, and Godly, dedicated staff for the children in our care. We keep staff costs low by only paying our staff that are on location in Kenya while our limited staff and board members in the U.S. serve on a volunteer basis. We also grow a vegetable garden and raise chickens and cows on the home’s property to keep food costs low.
Our hope is that our impact on each child that enters our home will have an exponential impact in Kenya. We trust that the strong education, the physical and emotional support, and, most importantly, the transforming power of the Gospel will help these children grow into strong adults who will establish healthy homes and families and break the cycle of poverty.
