Meet the community of Matete, located just north of the equator in Kenya’s Western Province. The Matete District is home to more than 60,000 people, mostly subsistence farmers and members of the Luhya tribe, living on less than $1/day.
Bethany has partnered with World Vision in a long term relationship to enable Matete to become self-sufficient. In 2011, Bethany and the surrounding community sponsored more than 500 children in Matete, setting them on a path to live life in all its fullness.
Much progress has since been made in Matete. They are building new schools, improving the health and hygiene of Matete’s most vulnerable members, and bringing clean water to several thousand people through new wells and protected springs. World Vision is also nurturing spiritual development wth training for the faith leaders and the children.
Our generosity is making a difference in Matete. But more child sponsorships and donations to clean water projects are needed to address the primary challenges.
