Beacon of Hope has its origins in the desire of one woman, Jane Wathome, to move out of her comfort zone and to share the love of Christ in a practical way. The desire to serve among the less fortunate women began in 1996 while she was serving as an intern with Nairobi Chapel. Two years later, the Lord put a desire in her heart to pursue further training in Counseling and Theology so that she could be more effective in her work of service.
After her studies at Nairobi International School of Theology, she partnered with MAP International for her internship training where she was exposed to the world of HIV/AIDS and through that experience, her desire to reach out to women who were infected and affected by HIV/AIDS within poor communities grew. She realised that God had equipped her with gifts and talents to bring hope, significance and self-worth to those women.
After her graduation at International Leadership University (formerly NIST), and through a contact at MAP International, God led Jane and a small core of her friends to the Ongata Rongai area in September of 2001. There, they met an already existing group of women who had taken initiative to deal with the HIV/AIDS scourge that was afflicting their families.
