Would you Like to Sponsor a Child in Kenya?

Things are moving on!

We’re pausing taking on new sponsors of our children and focusing on our Emergency Kitchen (click here) and Emergency Food Packs (click here) while Covid wipes out people’s livelihoods.

We’d love you to stand with us as we stand with these families.

We have looked after so many wonderful children since 1995 and now, responding to new Kenyan Govt policies, we are very pleased to say that we have successfully placed almost all our remaining resident children into family homes near their extended family and into the best local schools we can find for them.

Lavender's Story

Lavender is 15 years old.

Lavender is a very bright child from a very poor background. She was born into a family of 11 children. Her father works as a security guard in a nearby company, while her mother earns a little money by working on a farm. Lavender is a top performer in her class and would easily do well in her education if she could find someone to support her. The family have had many great challenges in meeting the educational needs of their children due to poverty. They work hard but cannot earn the financial means to support their talents. One of her sisters managed to score a C+ and qualified to join university in 2016 but has since failed to go without the money to support her. Lavender's brother scored extremely highly in his KCPE exams and received a call to a prestigious secondary school but, again, finances prevented him from attending although he has been able to attend a local secondary school. Lavender can easily succeed if she were to find support and we pray that her talents don't go to waste but that she will have the opportunity to reach her full potential.

If you would like to sponsor Lavender, to help care for her, to help her to stay in school and gain the education which we believe she would excel at, she will then one day be able to break the poverty cycle and stand on her own feet no longer needing to rely on charity.

She would love to know that someone cares for her and wants her to succeed, someone with whom she can build a relationship and tell her news. Would you like to sponsor Lavender?


Vincent's Story

Vincent is 14 years old.

Vincent is an only child. He was born out of wedlock before the death of his mother shortly after he was born. Vincent is a total orphan with no knowledge of who his father is. His father may not even know about his existence. Since his mother died, Vincent has been living with his relative and guardian, Ayub. His guardian is disabled and already has so many children to take care of from his limited resources and income, he has little time or food available for Vincent.

If you are looking for a boy to sponsor, to help care for him, to help him to stay in school and gain an education for a better future, he will then one day be able to break the poverty cycle and stand on his own feet, no longer needing to rely on charity.

He would love to know that someone cares for him and wants him to succeed, someone with whom he can build a relationship and tell his news. Would you like to sponsor Vincent?

Kevin's Story

Kevin's exact age is unknown but we would estimate that he is about 9 or 10 years old – the youngest of four brothers and sisters.

His father is a casual labourer but sadly no one knows where his mother is. She has suffered from mental health difficulties for many years and left the family home a few years ago.

Kevin’s big sister is at secondary school and is assisted by her maternal family but the other siblings are still at junior school and their father tries his best to take care of them around his work. Any spare money goes to pay for their school uniform and books. The family is in an extremely needy state and Kevin was particularly at risk from malnourishment until he was referred to our Home.

Kevin currently has no sponsor and we are looking for someone who would like to help care for him. We rely on people like you to help ensure Kevin will have enough food to eat and an education so that he will gain the skills he needs for a successful life ahead, finally breaking the cycle of poverty which misfortune and few resources has bestowed upon him.

If you would like to sponsor Kevin, please complete the form below and get in touch. He would love to have someone to write to and share his news with.


Denis's Story

Kevin is 12 years old.

He is the last born of a family of four. His mother married Morris, a Bodaboda rider, in Kano in 1999 but the marriage was not a peaceful relationship and resulted in frequent assaults which often had to be resolved in court. In 2016, the court awarded Denis's parents a divorce. His mother now lives in a rented house within the village and runs a small business to support her family as best she can.

Denis currently has no sponsor and we are looking for someone who would like to help care for him. We rely on people like you to help ensure Denis will have enough food to eat and an education so that he will gain the skills he needs for a successful life ahead, finally breaking the cycle of poverty which misfortune has bestowed upon him.

If you would like to sponsor Denis, please complete the form below and get in touch. He would love to have someone to write to and share his news with.
