Kenya Children Centres rescue orphans at our children's home and provide food and healthcare to the poorest children in slum villages. KCC started caring for orphans in 2000 with a small rented building and 4 orphan girls and this slowly expanded to 12 girls. In 2008, they constructed a purpose-built children’s centre within a large walled compound on a one acre plot at Ngoingwa, which is near Thika, about 30km northwest of Nairobi.
Today, the centre at Ngoingwa consists of a residential home with capacity for 80 orphan girls, a bakery, staff accommodation, a computer centre and a community hall. There is a resident team of social workers, carers and housemothers. They have goats, chickens, a vegetable garden and rainwater harvesting, which enables the team to teach the children husbandry and horticultural skills and provides a degree of self-sufficiency.
- Continued support for the home renovation, and ongoing accommodation.
- In particular food, clothing, and education.
