Christopher Hufton: The Building of a Center to Empower Community, especially Youth, is Commendable!
Pastor Christopher Hufton of Roswell, Georgia passionately supports the work of Imbako Foundation in rural Kenya. A Georgia Tech graduate and currently youth pastor, Christopher has a background in construction and reiterates the importance of having a standing facility as a place of safety, training, learning and consequently empowerment. As a youth pastor, he advocates for the support and empowerment of youth. He says “We know how important is to have a facility for people to feel safe in, to learn and grow in...The dream of having a center for the community to be used as a center point for training, learning and empowering people is so critical. However, it is only possible when people choose to rally behind and support the foundation. People like you!” In 2016, Imbako Public Health & Imbako Foundation launched a campaign to build a community and research center in rural Kenya. Titled IPHCRC, the center will be one where members will be taught, encouraged and empowered. Taught; Basic education in language, healthcare, arts, business and IT will be offered.
