Jopeva Children’s Home is located on the outskirts of Lodwar, Kenya and was established by Peter Esekon.
Peter Esekon and his wife Josephine turned their own small home into a refuge for children without parents and currently provide for six children between the ages of 6 and 17. MAP/Jopeva provides food, education, school supplies and uniforms, care, love and medical care for the children.
MAP / Jopeva supports and provides help for orphans and the most vulnerable children of the local community to ensure them a better future, safe home and caring family. An important part of this is to provide them with an education and an opportunity to escape poverty, both of which would be near impossible goals otherwise.
A unique part of our support includes also an internet connection.
This has made it possible to support and communicate with the children in a very meaningful way.
With tools like Skype, YouTube and Google: we have been able to support and encourage among other things new projects – that would otherwise seem very farfetched and even “strange”: like the earth bag building we have just completed.
Jopeva is organised under MAP-Make Possible as part of their non-profit organization.
