Bondeni is home to approximately 200,000 people. The major religions in this community are Christianity, and African indigenous religions. The economic activities in the area are brewing, selling fire wood and other small-scale business. Major challenges in the community include unemployment, crime, drug addiction (especially among the youth), illiteracy, teenage pregnancies, prostitution, school dropout (especially for boys).
Our Bondeni center continues to grow steadily. In addition to providing education, the center’s social workers, spiritual development officers 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, roads, and sanitation. Community members are constructing permanent structures to replace temporary shanties, an indicator of increased hope and community-building.
