The Current Ndumberi Children's Development Center
If you have been on a mission trip with us, chances are you have visited the current Ndumberi Children's Development Center, or CDC. This center is located adjacent to the Ndumberi PEFA Mercy Medical Clinic and is a great assest in the community. The center serves the needs of the children by providing spiritual, physical, educational, and social mentorship and training.
The CDC receives around 75 children each day at its current facility and that number jumps to 275 on the weekends. Unfortunately, the center is in dangerous disrepair with exposed wiring, broken windows, leaking roofs, wood rot, bug infestation, and rusted playground equipment.
The Future Ndumberi Children's Community Center
The future center will include the following:
Training & Resource Center
Library & Computer Lab
Kitchen & Dining Hall
Two Safe Rooms for Abuse Victims
Offices (including EIA's)
Below is a "flyby" video created by Tamarack Grove Engineering in Boise, Idaho. It was created from architectural plans provided by the PEFA & EIA planning committee in Kenya. This video helps us envision the future Children's Community Center in Ndumberi that will serve generations to come.
We are partnering with PEFA Mercy Ministries and Compassion International to acquire land and build a new Children's Community Center in the Ndumberi area. We are excited to announce that due to generous donations given at Build Hope 2019, we were able to purchase the land for this project. Although this project has experienced some delay in 2020 due to COVID-19, we are believing God for the funds to come in to begin construction on the first two floors in 2021.
