BROMSGROVE man Bill Jones who moved to Kenya to set up an orphanage and community project has created a video in a bid to get more people to help his cause.
Our Home Nakuru (OHN) is a community-based organisation currently aimed at improving a progressive and inclusive Kenyan community in which the poorest and most vulnerable citizens work together to empower themselves and their whole community.
OHN’s mission is to provide a safe, secure homestead for Nakuru’s street children and orphans, addressing their medical and educational needs.
Rather than just take orphans out of poverty and ignore the problems behind the situation, OHN’s ethos is to tackle the issues head-on in a bid to bring them to an end.
His sister Pilly Jones, who contacted The Standard, said she was very proud of her brother and what he had been able to do so far in Kenya but more help was needed out there.
“The idea is that we emulate the make-up of a community, creating an intricate web of connections across the project whereby each individual is intricately linked to, depends on and supports all the others.
“We believe that if you really want to create a sustainable community project, you have to act like a community.” she added.
