Our center continues to grow steadily. In addition to providing education, the center’s social workers, spiritual development officer and CHE trainers reach out to the community and evangelize to individuals, families, and groups. As a result various development groups were established. During the center’s existence, the community has experienced remarkable improvements in security, household income, infrastructure, and sanitation. Community members are constructing permanent structures to replace temporary shanties, an indicator of increased hope and community-building.
