RYP Volunteers: Walk for the Rehema Home
Date & Time
The Pentecostal Evangelical Fellowship of Africa [PEFA] asked career missionaries Ruth and Irvin Schwandt to start an orphanage. Rehema Home was founded in 1998 – starting with only four children.
It was the overcrowding and horrendous conditions of the government homes that galvanized Irvin and Ruth Schwandt to provide proper, loving care for Kenya’s abandoned and orphaned children. Rehema Home is committed to caring for each child, regardless of their health status, taking them into our home and providing them with love and instilling in them a hope for a future.
We have heard it from many visitors who have walked through our doors ”You are not an orphanage, you are a home.” Irvin and Ruth have created a dynamic where every child is known by name, receives individual attention, and is challenged to fulfill their God-given purpose.
Rehema Home is unique, in that they are not a “Western Organization” attempting to do some good in a “Third World” country. They are a Kenyan organization, (PEFA), led by Kenyan leaders who have responded to a need within their communities.
