The Igoda Children’s Village was created in 2007 to provide a permanent home for at-risk children whose lives and livelihoods have been impacted by poverty, illness, neglect, and abuse. The 70 residents, who range in age from infant to adolescents, come to us seeking a last resort refuge from their difficult lives. Many are orphaned, some have physical disabilities, and all come from the poorest backgrounds- but every child in our care has shelter, sustenance, opportunity, and support. But it’s not an orphanage! It is, quite authentically, a village: a warm and thriving African community populated by children and by the House Parents who serve as their guardians, caretakers, mentors, and friends.
Six months ago, through the generous support of our family and friends from around the world, we were able to raise almost $4,000 for our “Houses to Homes” project which provided fresh paint, new rugs, and locally made couches and tables- turning every Children’s Village house into a cozy home. These interior renovations were wildly successful and our children have reaped the benefits of their bright, comfortable, and stimulating environment. We were humble by the love shown to our wonderful kids. But providing safety, security, and comfort to 70 deserving children is never done! This holiday season, we want to give our children a very simple, but SO needed gift: a new bed for every child at the Children’s Village.
