Neema Stomp - Stand in Solidarity
May 1, 2021 |
One weekend. One Stomp. One purpose. Stand in solidarity with us as we support our family in Kenya especially as they move into their third Covid wave. Schools are closed and many cannot access work or food.
This is one small thing we can all do together to offer our support while lockdown desperately affects our students and their families. Register today for Neema’s second virtual Solidarity Stomp and help us reach our goal of registering 200 people and raising $15,000!
When we all join together from different locations around the world, we can have an even greater impact! So we’re holding this virtual race to increase our impact for Neema! What's a virtual race? It’s a race you do at your own pace, from wherever you're located, and in your own way - run, walk, on the treadmill, on the trail. You choose! Whatever you decide, just do it in the allotted time frame. That way we’re all doing it “together.”
Full Distance is 7.248 mi | Half Distance is 3.624 mi
*7,248 miles is the distance between our home base in West Chester, PA and the Neema school in Kitale, Kenya. Trek with us to Neema!
More about Neema:
Neema provides skills training, counseling, and discipleship to vulnerable young women in rural Kenya. The young women at Neema come from extreme poverty and inequality, and many have experienced prostitution, trafficking, indentured servitude, and other forms of abuse.
All of Neema’s students and their children are provided with a safe home environment and medical care. Not only do they spend their time training to become certified dressmakers and tailors through a national certification process, they also receive trauma counseling and discipleship.
We’ve seen Jesus bring healing and hope into the deepest places of trauma and hurt, and many of the young women have experienced great transformation: they’ve reconciled with their families, entered into healthy, Christ-centered marriages, and found dignified employment as graduates of Neema.
Hope is being shared in the towns and villages around Neema as the lives of our students are reshaped and restored. We believe that every life is significant and that through restoration and education, we will continue to see transformation in the hearts of young women, and in their families and communities as well.
