About this project

We are the new roots e.V. and we have set ourselves a goal: to offer needy children in Kenya a safe and constant home. 

We already purchased the suitable property for our children's home in Watamu last year and now we would like to fill it with life. 

While we have taken care of all the official requirements in Germany as well as in Kenya, numerous street feedings have taken place in Watamu and Nairobi, through which we have already been able to tell the children as well as the community about us. As a result, we have already taken 2 children off the streets and placed them in a friendly orphanage for the transition. 

We give the children not only a bed and a roof over their heads, as well as balanced meals, but also the opportunity to go to school. 

The situation in Kenya has worsened drastically since the Russian attack on Ukraine. Prices are rising and people can no longer afford even the most basic necessities. 

Your support is important! Together we can help and improve the lives of the children and give them a home away from the streets and crime. 

How you can support us and make a difference with us: 

We need to have the property cleared - cost approx. 500€.
To ensure the safety of the children we need a wall around the whole property (4.200sqm) - costs about 12.000€.
The first house in which we can accommodate about 10 children (offer from Kenyan construction company is already available) - cost approx. 17.000€
The children in Kenya and all over Africa are in need of help. Support us, because we can only help if you help us!

Become part of our heart project with your donation and help us to give the children a safe home and hope.

You can follow regular updates on the construction and our activities on site on our Instagram channel.

Thank you for your help!
