RAISING HOPE for impoverished children

RELEASING HOPE for developing churches

This man is making a difference...
for over 160 impoverished children!
His name is Lawrence Owino. He was born into miserable poverty. He experienced the pain, hunger, rejection and loneliness of living on the streets. Yet when he encountered Jesus, Lawrence knew that he was destined to share the Good News of Jesus and help needy children find hope. 
His compassion has been contagious. So in 2012 we partnered with him to build relationships with people who wanted to help. That's how TEAM Alliance was born.

We are RAISING HOPE for impoverished children.

We provide monthly financial support to Kingdom Champions Children’s Centre & Academy. The Centre provides two meals a day, uniforms, books, classrooms and teachers to impoverished children who have nothing.
Tatyana (pictured here) came to Kingdom Champions at age 4. Slum homes have a lack of running water, toilets, and food. The slum itself is full of prostitution and drugs. Being raised in this environment by her teen mother had left Tatyana withdrawn, mute, and unable to feed and toilet herself. She constantly wet herself in class. Like many children at the school, when Tatyana was first given the 2 meals per school day provided, she became sick. Her body wasn’t used to food. Eating every day and receiving basic life skills and education made all the difference! After a year, Tatyana is completely potty-trained and feeds herself. She also interacts with others. Her teachers say that she has emerged “out of her cocoon.”

We are RESTORING HOPE through Inner Healing.

We promote individual freedom and inner healing while speaking the Word of God with power and authority. Using The Redeemer's Key we help participants respond to life and to God as the person God created them to be. What an amazing experience it is to see people walk free from curses, vows, judgments, ungodly beliefs, anger, bitterness, etc.

We are RELEASING HOPE for developing churches
We minister at seminars designed specifically for pastors, ministry leaders, men, women, fathers and mothers. In all the local churches and homes we visit, we develop friendships with our African brothers and sisters, pray with them, and provide Bibles, supplies and other resources.
