This year, we are pleased to welcome Miss Melanie DeJonge, grade 8 teacher from Timothy Christian School, who will recount her experience of teaching the Open Doors curriculum. We will also have Kaitlyn Jonker, Emma Vanderwoude, and Ruth VanVliet, Guido de Brès Highschool students who will be doing a short interactive session where they will be teaching us about what they learned about the current situation in South Sudan – this is a direct result of presentations made CRWRF and WorldRenew to grade 11 geography students about work done in South Sudan. Both of these short presentations will allow guests to understand the important work being done by CRWRF and other Christian Non-Government Organization and how CRWRF endeavours to partner with schools to educate and connect with youth.

Mufu Rescue Centre

Project Profile

AIC (Africa Inland Church) Mufu Rescue centre was initially started as AIC Mufu Children’s Home but later in 2012 the home changed to a rescue centre so as to align itself with the government’s policy on orphans and vulnerable children. The centre is sponsored by Africa Inland Church under Africa Inland Child & Community Agency for Development. It is located in Embu County, Runyenjes Sub County, Kyeni North Ward in Mufu Village. From the centre one is able to view the beautiful scenery of Mt Kenya as the centre is situated on the slopes of Mt Kenya.
