Jitegemee is pushing forward with plans to build a new center, where we can build classrooms big enough for our expanding program, dorms for homeless youth, a permanent kitchen for our feeding program and a library. Jitegemee has entered into a contract to buy a one-acre plot of land in Machakos on which our new center will be built. We plan to complete the sale in 2009 and begin construction in 2010.
To make the dream of a new center a reality, Jitegemee will need to raise $150,000. A generous donor has pledged to match donations for the building fund, so your contributions will go twice as far. We have already raised $25,000—which means that we have pledges for $50,000 or a third of our total goal. Contributions may be made online on our Donate Today page.
