“Today, orphaned teenage boys 14-18 are the top                         recruitment target for Terrorist Training Camps in Somalia…”                                                    – Bishop Barasa Wanyonyi

According to a recent Kenyan government study, there are no organizations or benefactors, in Kenya or the US, that are investing in this high risk demographic. In contrast to this, 75% of all of the needs of orphan teen aged girls are provided for, mostly by US churches, non-profits and foundations. But planning is underway for the development of multiple RCEA-Core 300 Youth Leadership Academies top be built on RCEA property across Kenya.  The school is being designed to nurture, train, and develop, teen orphans who are emerging as young men who have no father, and prepared them as young men of God for success in life. There is no secondary school for available for this age group, with Secondary (9-12th grade) only accessible to those children with both parents.

Many of these young men have “aged out” of current orphanages, and have no alternatives but fending for themselves on the street. They have no men to mentor them into becoming a man, and no leaders to model devotion to God, character, work ethic, or real servant leadership in their lives. Several children’s orphan homes in the area have already contacted us saying “We will give you all of our teenage boys!

“And judgment is turned away backward,
and justice standeth afar off:
for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
15 Yea, truth faileth;
and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey:

and the Lord saw it, and it displeased him
that there was no judgment.
16 And he saw that there was no man,
                             and wondered that there was no intercessor:..”                                                        – Isaiah 59:14-16

Our mission is to heal their hearts with love and purpose, while sharpen their writing, reading and math skills, train them in the Warrior, Priest and King and then take them all the way through Stage 6 leadership development. Another focus will be real-life job skills development based upon each young mans unique gifting. We will also regularly have them engage the local community to practice servant leadership where needs are the greatest. Finally, as we are able to add qualified teacher-mentors to our staff, a blend of 21st century agricultural training, and pastoral theology will be taught to these future leaders. Total cost of the finished 25 bed facility construction is approximately $75,000 and we are looking for donor-partners to stand with us throughout the process.
