Bringing Hope, Transforming Lives .....One Village at a time
PottersHeart is a youth and young adult education charity working in some of the poorest communities in rural Kenya. In villages way off the end of the tarmac road. With villagers who have little or no education….. who are struggling to survive and feed their families every day.
The money we raise goes towards our projects in Kenya. Our volunteers, mostly from the UK and Kenya, teach and train in health, nutrition, farming, business skills, vocational skills, marriage, parenting and many more topics, the aim being to enable families find a way out of poverty.
Since 2015 we have seen lives changed, Families restored. Hope that once was dead and buried come back to life.
We believe that education and training is the key that unlocks their futures….. and we want to do more…..
One of the things that John and I, Founders of PottersHeart, have been praying is that we would find successors to take over The PottersHeart baton. After a false start we were left with frustration and disappointment. Through a very tough time we stood firm and kept trusting and praying. Suddenly, what now seems very obvious, came into focus.
For the last 12 years we have worked with Pastor Jonah Tito, he was born and raised in Miti Mingi village, Nakuru. Jonah is one of those people who has Community Development stamped right through him! He loves people and will not rest until he has done what he can to improve the lives of those around him, near and far. Jonah firmly believes that potential is tucked away in every person, and he is on a mission to help them release it. He has travelled hundreds of miles with us over the years, introduced us and our teaching into many villages. He has worked tirelessly as a volunteer for PottersHeart. There you have it, Jonah is the newly appointed CEO of PottersHeart Kenya. He is a man of integrity, he loves the Lord with all that he is, and together with his family and his Kenyan PottersHeart we pray that the road ahead will be clear, and the harvest plentiful.
Jonah, his wife Eunice, and his brother Stephen are in the process of registering PottersHeart Kenya as an official entity. We can’t wait for it all to come through. We will carry on our work here in UK, and still plan to travel to Kenya, but probably now only once a year.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
1 Peter 4:10
When potential is released, communities thrive!
Loving, teaching and training, bring life and hope which help to alleviate poverty
“My heart is to see my people have hope, find their own solutions to help them stay alive and do well. PottersHeart brings hope and solutions by teaching and training us.
Thank you and please keep coming back”
