Good News Community Centre has finally achieved the goal of providing sheep and goats for the widows in Ouya Village. So far 128 sheep and goats have been given to the widows in Ouya village. Sheep and goats are multiplying and lives of widows in this village have been transformed because they sell their sheep / goats to earn money to meet their various needs.
In the year 2009, GNCC started basic sewing training. Eight (8) young widows are being trained and will be graduating soon. When they finish the training, they will be able to repair clothes, make dresses, school uniforms, etc. The school has now five sewing machines. When the students graduate, we will be giving them sewing machines so that they can start their own clothes making business.
From handing over local sheep and goats for the widows, as a ministry are now breeding Alpine goats known to give a lot of healthy milk. Goat milk is known to boost immune system of the body especially those who are HIV / AIDs positive....
Through GNCC, we’ve been able to give back the dignity to the widows whose huts were almost collapsing. We have helped to build 18 tinned roof huts for the widows. This is a milestone for the ministry of Good News...
GNCC membership in Kisumu has grown to 70 adults and 60 kids. The members are contributing to the needs of the poor in the community by donating clothes, shoes, food and funds. This is done through fellowship wing of ministry called Mercy Box. Every Sunday, willing member brings whatever they have decide in their hearts to give.
