Child Sponsorship

The vision to foster hope and a sustainable future for those in need includes caring for orphans and vulnerable children. The first of our two Children’s Homes opened in 2004 and welcomed 91 orphans from the surrounding communities. We now care for over 240 children between our Ilula and Kipkaren Children’s Homes in Kenya.

We invite you to be a part of this important ministry by becoming a child sponsor. Your partnership can help meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our children.


HELP RESCUE 24 MORE ORPHANS

Your sponsorship is

RESCUING | REVIVING | RESTORING

an orphaned child.

You can help welcome 24 more orphaned children into our Children’s Homes in Kenya! Your sponsorship places children in a forever family with a mother, a father, and 24 brothers and sisters. Each child will have their own bed and belongings, will receive healthcare, a quality education, counseling, and healthy meals. You are showing the love of Christ to a child in need!

WHAT YOUR SPONSORSHIP PROVIDES

Family: Our goal is to do the best we can to replace the families that have been taken from these children. Each child will live in a family unit of 24 children with a married couple as a mother and father.

Home: We seek to provide a loving, Christ-centered environment where children have their own beds, shelves and drawers for their belongings. Communal areas are available for the children to use for studies, play and devotions.

Education: Each child will receive a Christian education. School fees, uniform and supplies are provided. They will also be taught biblical truths, housekeeping, farming and social skills.

Food & Clothing: Many of the children arrive with no clothes or shoes and are malnourished. In our home, they receive three nutritious meals a day and clothes needed for school and play.

Healthcare: Medical checkups and immunizations occur regularly. The children are taught personal hygiene and healthy living and participate in physical activities.

Counseling: We began our counseling program in November 2014, and we have seen great results from this new level of care in our Children’s Homes. The program includes group, couple and individual counseling and training throughout the year for all of our children and staff. Career counseling for our graduating kids is also included.

Administration Support: Caring for over 100 children at each home can only be as good as the staff caring for them. We hire staff (house parents, kitchen staff, security and office support) with strong Christian character and superior training experience.

Higher Education: You have the unique opportunity to sponsor your child into Higher Education. Giving our children the chance to attend one of the many avenues of Higher Education such as University, Vocational School or even learning to start their own business are just some of the ways we are combating and breaking the cycle of poverty. In a country with a high rate of poverty, education is key and equipping them with skills are vital to the success of these children.
