Transforming East Africa Report- August 2016
“Near the end of the 3 Day leadership conference 5 pastors gave their hearts to Jesus for the very first time, and many 100’s came forward to receive the blessing of the Spirit of adoption from their Father in heaven as true beloved sons…”
Then the Governor of the State of Bungoma asked, “What can we do to help you with your plans to build Teen-boy-orphan Academies in our state? Art Hobba replied, we need 10 Acres of easy access farmland deeded over to us, with no strings attached. “Done!” said the Governor, “When can you start?“

God moved in so many unplanned and miraculous ways, it’s difficult to write all of it down but, for a play-by-play summary, open this link.
The greatest risk demographic, these 14-17 orphaned boys, are cast off from the educational system without hope, without any vocation, or means of support. 250,000 are sent into the streets each year. The high levels of crime, slavery and violence are controlled by older orphan-alumni, and they actively recruit these 8th graders as their new proteges.
Our vision includes an ambitious goal of building 60 K9 – K12 Leadership Academies by 2030 where qualified indigenous teachers, pastors, and coaches will train, nurture, and graduate 1,800 18 year old young leaders each year.
The State of Bungoma has donated the first 10 Acre parcel to Core 300 already, and we need funds for architectural design right now! Help us raise the first $10,000 of the first $100,000 for our first Leadership Academy by giving a one-time gift here
Orphan Academy Prototype for 120 K-9 through K12 Boys According to a 2015 study, NO ONE is addressing this demographic group of discarded teens. Unless we act, these innocent victims will continue to be the greatest risk to their own nation as they grow into manhood because:
- They are the farm team for the majority of crime in Kenya and beyond
- They are the primary fertile recruiting field for muslim terrorist organizations to the north
- They will perpetuate the tribal abuse and enslavement of children and women
