Gethsemane Garden Christian Centre (GGCC) is on Mfangano Island in Lake Victoria in Kenya. Over five hundred students are currently enrolled at the Christian-based school, where they consistently exceed the national average for end-of-year test scores.
The students at GGCC are among the poorest of the poor from Mfangano and the surrounding islands. Up to 65% of the people depend on government assistance for daily sustenance, and 60% of pregnant women are infected with HIV. The number of orphans increases each year as parents die from this disease.
Scripture tells us that Christ, our Savior, experienced agony and distress at a place called Gethsemane. The victory He won there, His death on the cross, and His resurrection bring hope and joy for all mankind. It is our desire, by meeting the spiritual and educational needs of the Suba children, to replace the sorrows of sickness and poverty with joy and hope for the future.
To give hope to, and empower, children who are victims of poverty and HIV/AIDS by providing them with a quality, Christian-based education.
