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 200 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.

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.

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.
