The home was started in the year 2000 and registered in 2010, as a good will of giving back to community and as a way of appreciating life because of the nature of life the founder went through as a young girl. Pamela Adhiambo (Director) was born in the rural set up of Nyanza Kenya under the true hardship of poverty and because of this, she only managed to learn up to class 4 and drop out to face the true nature of survival as a young girl, working as house help in Nairobi. She got married at an early age with the hope of getting a better life which was not the case and after several attempt without success because of being abused and buttered, she settled down to be a single woman raising her three children as a business woman. Based on her life story of not being able to go school, she decided that she was going to give unfortunate children from different background an opportunity she never had and because of that the orphanage was born.
School fee payment-We have struggled doing our best giving that we have since we started but as the number has continued to grow our ability to help has reduced and this has made our children to be sent home because of school fees arrears and at time they lack stationeries, shoes and uniforms. Our major challenge has been covering the cost of those in high school and especially this year 2016 where we have two boys joining form 1, and one waiting to join University it’s a big challenge.
Rent payment-The house we shelter the children is a rental house and there has been a big challenge paying for it with community help here and there but that is not enough. Currently we have an arrear of $2000 which we fear that soon the home doors will be locked.
Medical cover for children-The issue of medical cover is one big load we have struggled with and in 2013 we lost one child to sickness. The home does not have sponsors and so we rely on self medication incase a child gets sick, with severe cases taken to district hospitals which does not provide good medical services.
Money to buy food-Since the home begun we thank God that He has been faithful that he provided community members who bring us food which has really help the home, the only problem that exist now is the money to buy the actually food like meat, kales etc..The community provides floor, rice and cooking oil.
Together as a team we have done our best since the home begun till now but we need your help to enable this innocent children achieve their full potential in life. We do not discriminate any domination given to us no matter how small.
Hope for children Kenya is an orphanage like no other, located off kangundo road kayole junction, a home which provide shelter to 35 orphans and vulnerable children whom because of dark past in their life, lost hope. The orphanage practice family value of brothers and sisters not caring which tribe, region, dark past one experienced. All are raised under the umbrella of a family, where the home matron and the founder act as the mother of all children.
Our strategy is unique as all children are allowed to mix with other children in public schools and local churches to share positive life stories, religious attribute and academic, with the view of erasing the dark past the children experienced. Our children attend public schools and local churches, where they are able to play together with children from other normal families, make friends and share dreams together. We aim to give each and every child an opportunity to dream again and create new life stories which will transform their lives to have positive worldview and dreams. Our exit strategy is to ensure that every child is given an opportunity to be self reliant in life through education. We ensure that every child achieve his/her dreams through education and those who don’t succeed are enrolled in different colleges where they acquire skills in entrepreneurship, and other areas which will enable them to be self reliant.
