Mt. Elgone CarePoint
Mt. Elgone CarePoint, located in Kenya not too far from the Kenyan border, lies on the gentle slopes of Mt. Elgone. The CarePoint is about an hour northwest of Kitale, Kenya and serves an impoverished rural area. This project is highly committed to serving the children, as well as their parents and guardians.
Mt. Elgone is HopeChest’s first partnered CarePoint in Kenya in partnership with Seeds Ministries. Seeds Ministries was founded by Pastor Richard and Hellen Makani and through their ministry they are seeing despair, hopelessness, abandonment, and abuse being replaced by a sense of hope, love and belonging
With the partnership of Christy Vermeer Connect Community, the children at Mt. Elgone CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Christy Vermeer Connect Community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Mt. Elgone
Empowering a child is one of the most personal ways that you can make an impact on global poverty. It is more than providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. When you sponsor a child, you build a relationship that shows that child they are valuable, worth loving, and worth investing in.
Your sponsorship is the starting point of a journey that equips vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to create sustainable transformation. When you sponsor a child with HopeChest, you are not just supporting one child — you are helping transform entire communities.
Story of Impact
HopeChest Partners with “One of the Best Companies to Work for in Colorado”
Dana Owens / March 5, 2019
Did you know that HopeChest also partners with businesses?! “The most successful companies give employees a sense of belonging,” says Sue Shellenbarger in the Wall Street Journal Article, “Why Perks No Longer Cut it for Workers.” This is why Children’s HopeChest is partnering with businesses that are about more than the bottom line. At HopeChest, we believe the corporate setting is a powerful place where a greater calling and purpose can thrive.
Start a Fundraiser for Mt. Elgone
HopeChest’s approach to alleviating poverty is asset-based, because we believe that in every place on earth there are resources, not only for surviving, but for thriving and succeeding. Local leaders tell us what they do have instead of what they don’t have, and we walk with them to see their vision for their community come to fruition through development projects.
A fundraiser for Mt. Elgone CarePoint is transformational rather than transactional. It promotes empowerment rather than dependence. Your support for these projects will go a long way as, together, we invest in holistic and sustainable solutions that address the root issues of poverty.
