We hope that you will consider partnering with us to change the life of a child. Each year 20-25 more abused, neglected, abandoned/and or orphaned children are placed at In Step. We are so thankful for the opportunity to bring them into our family. This, however, is also consistently increasing our expenditures. Your gift will make a lasting difference in the lives of the children we care for.
Donations: Donations received are pooled together and are managed by Rehema Ministries to fund programs and projects in Kenya. In Step Foundation and other similar organizations or individuals that care for vulnerable children in the Cherangani Hills area of Kenya submit “grant requests” to Rehema Ministries for review and approval. Rehema Ministries, a U.S. nonprofit must have full control of all funds donated to a foreign entity. Grants help fund program and project requests, such as general operations for the children’s home, operational costs and educational supplies for the school, medical needs, facility improvement projects, new housing projects, and any other needs that support the care and education of the children. Whenever possible we will do our best to honor donor preference, but we must reserve the right to use all donated funds for the
Child Sponsorship: When you sponsor a child, your monthly gift is combined with others to provide housing, clean water, 3 balanced meals a day, education, medical care, clothing and and the staff that care for all of the children. Full child sponsorship is $150 per month, which equates to about $. Monthly child sponsorship also helps to cover all the needs of the children including salaries for the staff. It requires many hands to properly care for over 179 children. In addition to our outstanding group of volunteer missionaries, the home employees 52 local Kenyans. These positions include house aunts, farm and dairy workers, cooks, teachers, social workers, etc.
We pool together all monthly sponsorship donations to leverage them for maximum effectiveness and to make sure the needs of both the sponsored and the un-sponsored children are met. Your monthly sponsorship of a child makes a huge difference in the lives of all the children in the home.
Due to the emotional sensitivities of our children, we do not disclose to them any specific details regarding sponsorship. If you do choose to send your child a letter, please word such correspondence in a way that says you are thinking about them and/or praying for them. We let the children know that they are being prayed for by people that love them and that many give generously so that all the children have what they need. A few times through out the year we will do our best to send child sponsors updates regarding the child you have chosen.
We hope that you will consider partnering with us to change the life of a child.
Under U.S. tax laws, donations directly to foreign organizations typically are not tax-deductible. A U.S. public charity, such as Rehema Ministries, cannot act as a mere “conduit” to transfer donations to a foreign organization. For this reason, pursuant to our grant agreements with In Step Foundation and In Step Children’s Ministries, and in accordance with the Internal Revenue Service, we have exclusive legal control over all donated sums. We reserve the right to use donated sums for other complementary purposes if In Step Foundation and In Step Children’s Ministries do not comply with the terms of their grant agreements, and we reserve the right to apply any unused funds to where they are most needed and best used. Given our longevity and close relationship with these organizations and our audit/review policies of approved grant requests, however, it is extremely unlikely that this would occur.
