The Rehma Boys are officially a registered charity!!!
This is such a huge blessing!
We actually teamed up with my auntie and uncle who run a non-profit already. They were looking for more projects to take on as they had shut down some of theirs and we were praying for a door to open for us to register as a charity. It just matched up so well!
We are more inspired than ever to move along with the project. We have some big visions for our team, our boys and the entire community. Kelvin and I spent the better part of the year wondering where God was taking us. As the time passed by and doors closed, it was made very clear that we are indeed suppose to be in Mombasa. And we are so excited to be there.
So what does this mean for YOU?
Well, as a registered charity we are now able to issue tax receipts (to Canadian residents only). I realized what a huge deal this was when many people were hesitant to give knowing that they couldn't get any tax breaks. But now you can! I have also set up online giving which makes giving so much easier and more convenient.
Another huge benefit to being registered is accountability. We now have a board of directors and people to help us with the finances watching to make sure that we are being good stewards of our money. We are also excited to have a team of people who are willing to help and guide us as we make decisions concerning our work.
Uh isn't God amazing???!
So if you would like to give to the Rehma Boys, you can click the link on the left hand side of my blog. I have also updated their site (www.rehmaboys.com) to give you a better idea of what we are doing, where we are going, and how you can help.
Thanks for staying invested in our lives and the lives of the precious young men we love so dearly!
Here are some random videos of the boys that I had stored on my computer and wanted to upload with my awesome internet.
