We welcome both boys and girls into our home, most of them coming to us under the age of 5. We have a larger home that houses a kitchen and common gathering areas, and behind this home, we have our boys’ cottages for boys aged 10 and over, in line with Kenyan tradition. Everyone else is in the smaller, supervised family-style cottages.
Our Kikuyu home sits on 50 acres of picturesque land on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, with over three million people. The area surrounding our home has many hills and valleys and being at a higher elevation we experience cooler temperatures at night and during the winter months.
Children of Hope® contributes to the community by providing caregiver, agricultural, and livestock jobs to the people within the local community, and even have beautiful rental cottages available (for church retreats, family reunions, etc). We want to work with and be a blessing to our local community.
