The Lost Kids of Kenya,
Reaching a Generation on the Streets for Jesus
Through sports projects, feeding programs, and HIV/AIDS workshops, Pastor Joseph Ongany, along with his family and team, is empowering children living on the streets in the city of Kisumu.ABOUT BLESSED OVERCOMERS (C.B.O.)
We are a registered non- profit, community-based organization that seeks to rescue, rehabilitate, reintegrate and empower street children to live a dignifying life through value additive programs.
Since her inception, Blessed Overcomers C.B.O (BOCBO) endeavors to roll out highly individualized programs to help disadvantaged children living on the streets of Kisumu, Kenya. It is worth noting that not only do most of these children have no access to formal education or basic services but also family affection and support. They are neglected children with little chance of having a decent future – condemned to live by deceit, stealing, prostitution and even violence. Some of them are homeless and many who attend school initially are forced to leave and consequently, relapse into illiteracy.
Blessed Overcomers C.B.O recognizes that street children are endowed with their own personal gifts and potential. They seek to bring out and "tap" this individual ability in each street child, with the view of adding value, first to the beneficiary and secondly, to the human capital in Kenya and the world at large. This, in turn, curbs wasted lives that hold great potential. Blessed Overcomers C.B.O's strategy is to organize its resources into tailored programs that will have a positive impact and produce a testimony in every street child's story.VISION, VALUES & OBJECTIVES
To empower and improve the quality of life of street children through sustainable value additive programs. To Give a "new lease on life" to disadvantaged children living on the streets.
Kisumu, formally Port Florence, is a name derived from a Luo word "Kisuma," meaning "a place where the hungry get sustenance." The third largest town in Kenya with an area of 417 square kilometres (157 square kilometres of water and 260 square kilometres of land) is located on the Eastern shores of Lake Victoria with a population of over 500,000 people (of which over half live in the slum settlements which have not been urbanized).
