The story of Terekeka started back in 2007 when founders Dennis and “Mama Lilly” Klepp sought an opportunity to expand in another region to help meet the needs of the orphans. That year, the Klepps met with local officials in Terekeka and were deeded land for Harvesters to run an orphanage and school. Construction began the following year and by 2010 we officially opened and began caring for 27 orphans. By 2011, Harvesters’ Terekeka was caring for 46 orphans and providing schooling for 60 students under the mango trees on campus.
Today, Harvesters’ Terekeka cares for 55 orphans and provides education for 443 students. Our campus includes missionary staff homes, dorms and a clinic within a five acre, fenced-in campus. We have an additional 42 acres for our newly built school and agricultural activities. Church takes place off campus at a local Evangelical Presbyterian Church.
