Boys and girls of any age are welcomed to our home. We have a larger home that houses a kitchen and common gathering areas and living quarters for the boys 10 and older. 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 health of the local community by providing caregiver, agricultural and livestock jobs to the people within the local community, as well as a safe playground for community children to enjoy, and even have beautiful rental cottages available. We want to work with and be a blessing to our local community.

Elaine joined us at just two days old. She was found by an elderly woman after being abandoned by her mother in the bushes. She was welcomed with great excitement, songs and dancing.
Our home is a haven of hope, peace, and love, where children can lay their heads down in safety. Surrounded by their family of brothers and sisters, and ‘aunties’ and ‘uncles’ they can enjoy a secure, happy childhood. Our home in Kikuyu provides all the essentials for the well-being, growth, and development of our children. Our mission is to care for and nurture each child who comes to us as we would our very own. The caregivers, known as, ‘aunties’ and ‘uncles,’ and the children share meals, laughter, stories and chores, and enjoy full physical and emotional healthcare, comprehensive education, safe shelter, spiritual guidance and lots of love.
Looking for a get-away? We have beautiful guest cottages and grounds that are available for hire. This area would be a lovely setting for individual and group retreats, weddings, and for the more adventurous, camping. There is a kitchen, where we can prepare meals for you, or for your use if you would like to cook meals on your own. All proceeds from the cottages and grounds will be used to support the children in our Kikuyu home.
