Park City Community Church’s outreach programs touch the lives of those most in need. PCCC regularly provides funds and volunteer support for the following initiatives in an effort to effect positive change in our congregation, community and world.
Park City Community Church
supports vulnerable children and youth living in Kithoka, a rural area
northeast of Mt. Kenya.
The challenges facing children in Kenya are many. Disproportionately, children must survive after being abandoned and / or losing parents to to domestic violence, desertion / neglect, cancer, and HIV / AIDS.
PCCC partners with the Kenya Urithi Education Fund, a 501(c)(3) to support their "Feeding Program" for over 1,200 local children, the "Educating Girls Everyday" project supplying over 450 girls with sanitary pads to keep them in school and the Kithoka Amani Children's Home. In 2012 PCCC raised funds to build a Greenhouse at BLISS high school, to assist their "Feeding Program" sustainability goals.
The Kithoka Amani Children’s Home was created by Dr. Karambu Ringera from Kenya, who recently was awarded the “Life Time Achievement Award” from University of Denver where she received her Ph.D.
Dr. Karambu is the founder of International Peace Initiatives and Kithoka Amani Children’s Home – programs that are a part of Park City Community Church’s Kenya mission work.
PCCC Pastor Tracy Hausman knows first-hand that Dr. Karambu is deserving of international recognition. Pastor Tracy said, "As a member of our church’s mission team, I had the privilege of witnessing her deep faith, commitment to peace, and resolve to develop sustainable programs that empower her community."
International Peace Initiatives is dedicated to supporting and funding initiatives that mitigate the effects of poverty, disease, discrimination and violence. IPI provides homes for orphans and vulnerable children, supports African grassroots organizations and community leaders, and provides trainings in peace education and conflict resolution.
