WE HAVE GREAT NEWS!! We are pleased to announce the completion of our very first two “Build A Home” projects!
“Build A Home”
projects are designed to assist AIDS Orphaned children and their
extended families by building a home they can all live together in.
Additionally, the project replaces homes that are un-repairable and in
dire need of replacement. Finally, “Build A Home”
projects ask the recipient families to give back some assistance to the
AIDSOrphan712 program in an effort to get local indigence people
involved in the AIDSOrphan712 program
The Bollinger Family was the first sponsor to“Build A Home” for Cynthia Akinyi and her family.
She is the girl in the event video that cries her heart out for help!

This is Cynthia's new home with her mother and siblings.
Cynthia was also the first recipient of our “Young Legends” program.
Since our assistance with tuition and school supplies through this
program, she has moved to third in her class of 45 students in test
scores and has shown exceptional leadership in class! Cynthia will be
required to provide an internship to the AIDSOrphan712 program where
additional leadership skills will be taught and where she will learn how
to be involved in the program.
The Guildner Family was the second sponsor to “Build A Home” for Jared Orida. He is the boy in the event video that lived in his deceased grandfather’s home with the anthill.
Jared was in desperate need of new housing where he could sleep in the same home
with his step-mother and step-brothers. The house that he was sleeping in had to be demolished!
Here is Jared and his Step-Mother and Step-Brother next to their new home!
volunteers helped build the mud and stick walls. Our team worked right along side the local volunteers.
Along with building these
homes a dedication service was conducted the next day. A family
picture placard from the sponsoring family was given to the
recipient family, with a community dinner for the recipient family,
community leaders, local pastor, friends of the church and all the
people in the community that helped build the home. Later in the day
volunteers helped the recipient family move into their new home!
first two homes are the prototype for future home projects. We'd like to thank Founder and President Rob Bollinger and his daughter Rachel, to be among the first to test
the process of production for these homes and will set the stage for
future “International Teams” to do the same.

The Second Annual AIDSOrphan712 Benefit
Event with Comedian Brad Stine at Stonebrook Manor was a HUGE success! The event was attended by over 270 people and raised 45% in pledges of our annual financial goal for 2013.
Nehemiah's Restoration guests were treated to a Pasta Primavera meal and a choice of brownies or lemon bars for dessert. There were plenty of items to auction on when the festivities began at 5:30 PM Friday night. With 24 items up for auction many guests bid four and five times to assure their winnings!
Emcee Harold Velazquez started the evening off with a lively, "Who has the highest speeding ticket!" The winners got to admit they needed to slow down... Harold then introduced Founder and President of Nehemiah's Restoration, Rob Bollinger. Mr. Bollinger reported the various successes of AIDSOrphan712 for the past year. Mr. Bollinger exclaimed, "We started out believing we could help about 240 children with the funds we received.; however, God had a way of multiplying our efforts by helping a little over 500!" Much of the multiplication was through a focus on Micro-Enterprising Extended-Families with seed to grow crops and chicks to raise into hens for eggs. Then he shared the great news and success of AIDSOrphan712 by showing us how we have helped STOP the Cycle of Poverty for one AIDS orphaned child who is now a primary school teacher. Please watch and enjoy the great news:
He further explained our goal for 2013 is to assist 1,200 children by raising $100,000.00 this year. Additionally, the program is expanding its efforts by starting two new projects within AIDSOrphan712 called, "Young Legends" and "Build A Home".
The "Young Legends" project identifies young prospective leaders and assists them with their school fees in order for them to graduate from secondary school and move on to college. The idea is to track these young individuals in order that they may someday become strong Christian leaders within their communities. This project was inspired by the young man in the video above.
The "Build A Home" project identifies AIDS orphans who are in dire need of housing support. This is a joint project with the local church community. For $1,000.00US Nehemiah's Restoration can provide all the building materials to construct a three room home with a metal roof. The church community provides the labor to gather wall timbers from the local area and mud for the exterior/interior walls. Then an international team will assist in the installation of the windows, doors and roof. This project was inspired by the young boy in the video below.
Mr. Bollinger introduced the Co-founder and Vice President of NR, Nick Bollinger. Nick shared Nehemiah's Restoration vision for assisting people and told us, "If we don't help others with the love of Jesus Christ, no one else will." Then he shared this video with us and reminded us, there is still much more to do!
The evening was topped off with a full-hour of funny man Brad Stine! Brad kept us laughing and helped us to see ourselves as God's called children to help the orphaned and widowed!
"This was a much bigger and more entertaining event then last year's! I'm thankful for all of God's provision", said Founder and President Rob Bollinger.
He concluded with, "I'm not asking you to help us! However, the children that desperately need your help are!"
Please help Cynthia and children like her!
