Making a Difference Around the World

Even though the kids have lost their parents, are struggling to survive and barely have any material possessions, one thing they do have is hope—thanks to the hard work of those behind Project 24.

Project 24 is a non-profit organization founded five years ago behind the leadership of Rev. Bernhard Seter.

Together with Rev. Seter, five men founded the organization whose goal is to build 24 orphan rescue centers in Kenya, located in east Africa, near Kenyan Lutheran churches or schools, and provide scholarships for orphans.

Kurt Daudt of Crown, who is also State Representative for District 17A, was one of those who founded Project 24. Daudt recently returned from a 12-day trip to Kenya to see the results of the efforts that began in late 2006.
