Help the New Scent Center!
We need your help! One of the great challenges in Kenya is violence toward women and children. The cultural norms around abuse and control of women continue to run counter to the claims of the gospel. We have been working this past year with the Kenya Gender-Based Violence Partnership, a collaboration with Africa Nazarene University, Nazarene Compassionate Organization, Strategic Applications International, Servant Forge and several Nazarene Churches from the United States including Nashville First Church of the Nazarene and the Crossroads Church of the Nazarene in Arizona. We are seeking to design and build a comprehensive Gender Based Violence Prevention and Treatment initiatives.
Servant Forge in partnership with the New Scent Center in Machakos, Kenya is creating a safe and caring space for 40 children who have been sexually assaulted and abandoned on the streets of Kenya. These girls have been rescued from some of the most horrible experiences you can imagine. At the New Scent Center, they have shelter, food and are receiving an education that gives them hope and opportunity. Flora Mwikali and her team are shepherds moving these young children from despair to hope. The staff walks the streets searching for children who have been cast away or have lost their families. It is a mission of Justice and Mercy.
The work of New Scent Center grows everyday and Servant Forge is asking you to help us support the expansion of this ministry. We need to raise $10,000 to help them expand their space, purchase beds, books and supplies as well as for general care of these vulnerable young girls.
