Preserving Human Dignity Ministry Inc. is registered as a 501(c)3 non profit organization that seeks to build and manage rehabilitation centers (Half Way House) for families, care for orphans and vulnerable youths and to mentor and empower youth at risk.
We aim to achieve this by providing a platform that links resources (funds, skills, talents) from partnerships with individuals, organizations and corporations based in the U.S. with outreach organizations in developing countries that endeavor to achieve the same objective.
The goal of this mentoring program is to help young people build physical endurance, emotional and psychological stability, and spiritual aptitude. The program also seeks to provide career guidance and create self-sustaining opportunities, enhance life skills development, inculcate family values, act as a catalyst for career apprenticeship, offer professionals attachment opportunities across the globe, and provide scholarship opportunities for deserving needy learners.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27 NIV
This program supports children’s homes and rescue centers that provide assistance to OVCs (Orphans and Vulnerable Children). We are currently partnering with Maryfaith Children Centre, a rescue center that takes care of children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned. Our goal is to help Maryfaith reach its target budget of $218,052 for the year. Currently, Maryfaith is spending $1,896 per child per year and $158 per month per child. Additionally, we have identified three other homes in Dagoretti South that are in need of support.
Why halfway house?
Someone said that Covid-19 came and left us but we never remained the same. It turned our world upside down! For those who survived this global monster, our lives, our relationships, our leisure, our business, our marriages, our trust in systems was totally altered. At the height of Covid lockdown, we set up an online Family Intervention Psychosocial support platform with a specific bias for Couples in conflict. Homes had become toxic. Children were angry, parents were confused, families were in mourning and the government was helpless. The “home” as we know it became a place of death-some of us watched our loved ones take their last breath right before our eyes because the hospitals were full and the doctors were few. Finally when the Covid-19 madness stopped, it left in it’s path widows, widowers, orphans, “jobless providers-fathers and single mothers”, and every manner of psychological vulnerability. Children and youth had lost a year or two full years of school calendar. We had become accustomed to “Socially Distancing” ourselves for self protection but we were yearning for “Social connection” with those we love and care about.
We are grateful for the cash and in-kind contributions made by individuals, corporate and institutional partners. We work with on-ground organizations that directly serve the most vulnerable people in communities. To be a catalyst of change, you too can join the alliance!
