Within the Bondo District of Western Kenya, 20% of children are orphaned and without care, largely due to the AIDS crisis. The community receives the least annual rainfall in the region, resulting in unfulfilled harvests, poor drinking water, widespread malaria, and extreme poverty. As a result, Bondo’s children are without a bed to sleep in, adequate daily food, an education, and loving guardians. And long term? No promising future.
Our next micro-community and children’s home will give our future Bondo kids a home that not only meets their basic needs, but offers each one a life-changing path to self-sustainability and purpose. We call this a holistic care approach. So what does this look like? Click here to read more.
We fulfill our mission through a micro-community model: A children’s home based within a small, thriving community environment, home to no more than 100 children at any given time – all managed by trained, caring and local staff, and governed by a Kenyan Board of Directors. Within the community is a primary school, life skills center, medical facility, playground, and on-site agricultural operations that provide food for the micro-community and local markets, and offer training opportunities to children and staff. This model allows us to provide every one of our children with holistic care – the education, training and life skills necessary to be self-sustainable.
