The RAPT Foundation

Restricted Assistance Projects

Changing Lives Through Fellowship & Relationships

The RAPT Foundation in the past few years has provided food, housing, medication, medical supplies, ambulances, construction assistance for facilities as medical centers, education centers, outdoor comedors (public kitchens and food distribution sites), housing, adult education centers and now pre-natal centers. We strive to keep our faith by helping others who are in need. Please join us in our mission.

In Kitui, Kenya thousands of orphans and abandoned children as well as some families live in unspeakable conditions on the streets, the victims of gross poverty and the HIV/AIDS and COVID-19 pandemics, and lack of education. We are an organization assisting the Sisters, Poor Servants of the Mother of God, (SMG) at their Kitui, Kenya Missions in improving the lives of these children and families. The Sisters are presently working in Kitui and Mwingi, and Kiambu, and are in the process of setting up a new center in Kitale which is near Uganda. They are in the process of setting up new centers in Kitale and Mulutu where new fundraising goals are currently utilized to establish new medical and educational facilities. Once these are completed efforts, we will be directed to the new creation of a convent and adult technical learning center in Tanzania. But, first things first, please review our life-giving donation tree below and become a supporter. Help us bring life and health, housing, clean water, sanitation to the marginalized communities in the African Medical Missions.

Today, the SMG Missions are home, family, school, hospital, and Family Sponsorships to thousands of children and many families.

Prenatal Dispensary & Maternity Clinic

In Mulutu, Kenya, the need for a regional Immediate Health Care Facility emphasizing prenatal care and maternity needs, as well as local immediate medical attention provisions are essential since this area is located adjacent to several impoverished slums, marginalized communities, and uncounted rural tribal villages. Here this center will not just treat broken bones and mild infections, but more comprehensively provide pregnant women (many with HIV and/or related similar conditions) with well-supervised prenatal nutrition, medical examination, birthing, pharmaceutical, and postnatal care. With your help, thousands of families and newborn children will receive the essential care required to identify, monitor, and treat contagious, developmental, and preventable diseases among the world’s poorest families.

PAST PROJECTS

The SMG Education Center

The SMG Education Center in KITUI, Kenya provides for the primary education of children and daycare for many Orphaned Children, as well as Vocational Learning for Young Adults and Adults. This includes Child Care, Sewing, Brick Making and Woodworking, Sewing, and even Computer Skills!
(see slides below)

Housing and Community Center Construction

In all neighborhoods where the RAPT Foundation supplies direct assistance on the provision of suitable, but humble housing remains a primary objective. Our belief is that helping developing regions achieve quality education and suitable, secure housing provides the basis from which personal and social success in a functional community becomes possible.
The recreation of insecure, dangerous, and unsanitary marginalized living circumstances into secure, stable housing and community buildings provides for the next level of life and happiness. Only with your help can this work continue.

Feeding Program Project

Vision of The Frances Taylor Family Learning Centre Feeding programme
To be a centre where street children are helped to become responsible adults,
live reasonably and have a dignified life.
Mission
Frances Taylor Family Learning Centre Feeding Programme exists to show love
to street children by bringing them closer to their family for we believe God has
given each one of us the power and goodness to live a dignified life.
Main Goal
To reduce the number of street children and improve their quality of life
through creating awareness on the issues of exploitation, neglect and any kind
of abuse which might put their lives at risk.

NB: Daily we provide meals for approximately 200children per day.
We try to give a healthy balanced diet to our children and all meals are freshly
cooked in centre’s kitchen by trained cook. The cost of providing food for one
day at the Centre is approximately 450Kshs.
The current exchange rate is roughly 82 Kshs to the Dollar. We depend totally
on donations from friends and well wishes for foods for this on – going feeding
programme we thank you for taking an interest in this project. Any donation
however small, will be greatly appreciated.

Water Tank Project

We were able to fund three water tanks, so that our new maternity unit can have a reliable source of clean water. A supply of clean water, especially during the long dry season, has enabled us to work very efficiently with our delivery service.

The settlement of Mutito lies in a semi-arid area, some two to three hours (depending on the condition of the dirt road) from the nearest town in Kitui County. Our dispensary is very near the town of Mutito. We provide many good health services for the rural community. Recently, electricity came our way, so now our services can be even better. Water supply is our big problem… we rely mostly on rain-water stored in tanks. Because of the addition of the maternity unit, we need to harvest even more water. We have the following plan………..

We are hoping to get a supply of water from a water scheme, now almost finished (water harvested from the bed of a local seasonal river). This water is passing by the dispensary and we have requested a connection. We therefore need three tanks, each holding 10,000 litres. the cost of one is approximately 70,000 Kenyan shillings. Above is the picture of what one tank looks like.

We humbly request some funding to help our needy cause.
Many thanks for all the ways in which you have assisted us.
