Our family is growing, and we need our help to finish our third Emseni children's home!
The cost for the construction and furnishings for Emseni 3 is $410,000. Here's some great news - we've already raised nearly $342,000!
Like the other homes, Emseni 3 will house 40 children and 8-12 residential caregivers. Building needs to conclude by July so that we can make room for babies coming to Project Canaan this year. The Emseni Children's Campus is the newest development on Project Canaan, and is designed to be our children's home until they turn 18. Emseni is the siSwati word for "grace," and we truly appreciate the gracious generosity that enables us to provide these homes for our children. By 2020, this campus will consist of five buildings housing a total of 160 children as well as the Oasis, a communal kitchen/dining hall. Over the last two years, we've build two Emseni homes, the Oasis and a playground.
We rescued 42 babies in 2016, and as of today have 155 children in our care. On average, we received ababy every 9 days in 2016 and are preparing for another 40 plus children this year.
Will you consider a gift to enable us to finish construction and furnish this home by July 2017?
Thank you for providing our children with a future filled with promise and hope.

campaign if and when the fundraising goal is met. In the event that an
individual project is completed under budget and excess funds remain in
