We have big news! Last month CHO welcomed 19 more children to our family! God has directed their paths and provided them with a new home at CHO.
CHO staff members are working toward self-sufficiency by growing most, and eventually all, of the food needed for the orphanage.

All of the ChristHope Orphanage children— including our college students —are required to be home at the orphanage in Arusha for a national census this month.

With five more students moving up to Hebron Secondary School in Sakila, we have 42 children living at ChristHope Orphanage in Arusha and 27 at boarding school.
On October 22, five more of our orphans graduated from Form 4, the equivalent of 12th grade, and this month they are taking their national exams.
Students who choose not to go on to university or college may opt to attend IEC's trade school called Crower Trade School, which is located in the village of Maji ya Chai.
Once again we say "Bwana asifiwe" (praise the Lord) for His goodness and faithfulness! He has provided for the new CHO kitchen and dining hall.
The rain this year has been abundant and has caused damage to the CHO wall and created a lot of mud.
