Kisumu Children is dedicated to improving the lives of some of Kenya’s poorest children through a three-fold approach of running a Home, supporting other children within their own homes, and a broader, longer-term strategy of community development.
Kisumu Children’s orphanage, the Cherry Brierley Children’s Home (CBCH), has existed since 1995, starting with a few desperate children taken in by a Kenyan pastor and his wife. It has now grown to become a 72-capacity Home that is also becoming a hub for greater community involvement.
Located some 6 miles from Kisumu, CBCH provides a safe, comfortable home, ensuring clean water, a nourishing diet, clothing and medical care, all within a loving, Christian environment.
All the children receive primary education, going on to secondary education, apprenticeships, vocational training, college or university as appropriate. Education is a crucial step to self-sufficiency.
As well as looking after those admitted to CBCH, other children are helped with their schooling costs, or by the provision of meals, or having other basic needs met.
Educating the community on issues such as healthcare, AIDS and agriculture is also a growing part of Kisumu Children’s ministry, transforming lives through information and training.
Kisumu Children’s projects are run by dedicated local Christian Kenyan staff.
