Barbie Odom (one of the owners of Ft. Knox Locks) has had the privileged of visiting with the children and founder of Great Mercy Orphanage in Kenya on several occasions.

Those Faces!

There are about 120 resident children at the facility and they supplement their income by accepting paying students from the surrounding community due to their excellent reputation.

You have to Smile!

These children have so little compared to "US" but they are so full of joy and hope for the future.

Minimal facilities but they work.

Most of the building are simple wood frame with sheet metal.  They are hoping to start upgrading the building to concrete and/or block in the future.

Grow your own food!

This picture represents the way we are trying to help this orphanage.  They wanted to buy some adjacent land to increase their capacity to grown their own food and we help make that happen.

Strong in their Faith!

Although founded by a Christian woman as an application of her Master thesis project, the school welcomes Muslim Somali refugee children from the area to join in their excellent educational program.

We are the ones who are blessed!

The success and blessing Ft. Knox Locks has been to us (Milton & Barbie) has enabled us to pay forward support for this amazing orphanage in Kenya.  To date we have been responsible for over $30,000 being responsibly funneled to Great Mercy Orphanage.  We want to thank our customers for being a part of passing on a blessing.
