Hope Partnership

In 2011, Community Presbyterian Church in Celebration recognized a growing number of families and children experiencing poverty and living in hotels and motels along Highway 192. They knew the faith community had a role to play, and the idea of Community Hope Center was born. ‍

Kenya, Africa

Rene and Jennifer meet for the first time!

Founded by Paul Robinson and Debbie Scott-Robinson, this amazing ministry not only provides food, shelter and education, but also offers a loving, caring, nurturing environment for children in need. The Kenya mission’s greatest need is for 60 student sponsors each year for school intake.

Could you sponsor a student for just $42/month? ($500 per year)

Fees cover the following:
Education, 2 sets of uniforms, shoes, workbooks, stationery & lunch.

Sadly, for a lot of the students their school lunch is the only meal they receive each day. Students are at Celebration High School (CHS) for 4 years.

It’s very rewarding to be a part of shaping a child’s future. In return CHS will contact you 3 times per year: Easter, Summer and Christmas by email with a letter and report for your student. You will also be given an email address should you wish to send letters of encouragement via the CHS secretary. We also run a 2 week sponsor trip each year so you can actually meet your student!
