Event Beneficiary

PPCO makes it possible for orphaned and abandoned children in Kenya to have a future. Since 2003, our ministry has provided access to education, basic physical needs, as well as emotional support to children involved in our program through our outreach program in Eldoret, Kenya.

Our goal is to have our own high quality boarding school on the land owned by PPCO in Eldoret, Kenya. We have plans to build a multi-purpose hall serving the entire community as a place of worship on Sundays and as a private school throughout the week. Children will attend the school on a sliding scale model and disadvantaged families will be able to pay a discounted rate. Orphaned children or children of extreme poverty will be able to attend the school through sponsorships and scholarships offered through our organization.

For additional information on our ministry, we hope you will visit our website at: You can also find us, and ‘like’ us, on Facebook! PPCO is a registered 501© 3 non-profit organization. EIN 02-070806.
