Who We Are And What We Do
VCHF is born out of James 1:27, “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” This was birthed in the heart of Jesus for widows and children. He prophetically impregnated it into my heart many years ago, and today it is a thriving reality around the world. “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world.” (1 John 5:4).
Our vision and purpose is to, ‘Have a heart big enough to encompass the World’.
To reach vulnerable children, orphans, and widows who are destitute and who need a hand up and out of poverty, so they can firstly come to know Jesus, and have a life worth living. We are His hands extended.
Victory Bursary Fund
Featuring Albert Mugisha Hillson, one of many recipients of the Victory Bursary Fund which gives further education to orphan and vulnerable children after High School Graduation. Albert Mugisha Hillson came to our orphanage, Victory Family Home of Champions in Rwanda when he was just 7 years old. His elderly grandmother could no longer care for him, so he was taken to our Home, where he grew up.
Here is Albert’s testimony:
My mother gave birth to me when she was 13 years old. She could not feed me and clothe me, because she was still a child herself. I was raised at my grandmother’s house until I joined Victory Family Home of Champions in 2007 . I love my grandmother and see her as often as I can. But today, I don’t know how I can thank Papa and Mama Victory, Drs George and Hazel Hill, who obeyed the Lord and did what He requested of them. I’m happy that I am who I am, because of what they taught me. Because of them I know Jesus, I’m a worshiper; because of them I am studying in University; because of them I learned that I need to share my talents so that others can be blessed because of what they gave me. I don’t know how I can explain how Jesus, through Victory changed my life. But honestly, my heart is ready to share what Jesus, through Victory has given me. It is my honor to be called a Champion. Thank you also for my sponsor from Ontario, Canada, who allowed me to go to University, where just this year I graduated with a BA in Business and Information Technology.
Where would I be without you?
Our Christian school currently educates orphans and vulnerable children, from nursery to high school, with the potential of a life skills program in the future. Our school and home population is around 450 beautiful staff and children, whom we call Champions.
The picture below is the orphanage, Christian school, and its children.
Above is our dedicated Christian staff surrounding our CEO, Mr Francis Ager in Kisumu Kenya. Our staff are teachers in our Christian School from nursery to high school; also social worker Joan Otieno, and many other valuable team members, too numerous to name. The Home staff pictured here care for our children, as well as cook for them and gently mother and father them, doing their best to obey the scripture which says:
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”
Did you know slavery still exists today?
In the kiln factories in Pakistan people are enslaved. Children as young as 5 years old are forced to make bricks from clay and mud with their bare hands, as they work beside their parents 6 days a week, sunrise to sunset! Children are illiterate, poverty stricken, have little to eat, and no medical care. Supernaturally, the Lord lead me to reach out and trust Him to help me find a way to help these children. I was led to a Victory Pastors wife who also has a passion to help these children.
She also has 16 years experience as a teacher in Pakistan. Since that day Annie and I have worked together to start ‘Hazel’s Place’, a school to educate these children. We started with 70 children. We feed them and teach
them and lead them to Jesus! We show them love and they have fun with us. God is so good! It does my heart good to see smiles on these children’s faces where before there was just hopelessness.
I dare say all this puts a smile on Jesus’ face too!
Widow Joy's Poultry Business, Zambia
A VCHF MicroLoan Outreach
Funds given to widow Joy to start her own small business have not only given her a life worth living, but money to educate her daughter. After the first chickens were hatched and sold to locals and restaurants, Joy turned a profit, rewarding her for her hard work as she continues to grow her business. It is never easy when a woman is left alone to care for her children.
The Lord watches over them even from heaven.
“A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy habitation.”
