The Lord has been gracious to the Trust, such that we have been able to register three groups, namely: ACK Kimbimbi Utugi Group (2) ACK St. Andrew’s Kabare Utugi Group (3) ACK St. Mary’s Ngariama Utugi Group. The other groups that are in the pipeline are: Mutithi Utugi Group, Baricho Utugi Group, Mutige, Kithunguthia and Kiaritha. These groups are in the process of being registered.
Once a group is registered, it opens an account and the group is allowed to run her own account, but the trust monitors her progress and facilitate on empowering them on how to make use of her resources. A member is supposed to register with 250/= and make a saving of not less than 200/= every month. One is expected to save for six months, and then qualifies in receiving loans with a rate interest that is favorable for every member.
We are encouraging as many members to register as many as possible. This programme is for Kirinyaga Community as a whole. There are no religious boundaries, everybody is invited and welcomed. We need to grow together as Kirinyaga Community, in making Kirinyaga the best county in Kenya.
RETREAT CENTRE IN THE THIRTEEN ACRES OF LAND
SAFARI YA BIBILIA
The Christian journey is both enjoyable and tiring. The children of Israel had to go for a long journey that made some of them weary, afraid and almost giving up. Remarkable also is the early story of Israelites in their walk with God. This Retreat centre will give you a walk through the Bible and the Lord will speak to you and your heart as you meditate on His goodness and greatness. We are in the initial stages of developing the ‘WALK THROUGH THE BIBLE’. The Retreat Centre is opposite JOY MILLERS, about 100 meters walk from the main road.
