Summary

Diani Children's Village (DCV) is not only a children's home for children in need - currently housing 17 children - but also a rescue centre for abandoned babies. These babies were abandoned by their desperate mothers, who are often HIV+. The babies are found in place like bushes or a rubbish dump, often underweight and with all sorts of health problems. Therefore, special (medical) care is needed. When the babies are healthy and strong enough, we will try and find a (adoptive) family for them.

Challenge

Diani Children's Village (DCV) is not only a children's home for children in need - currently housing 17 children - but also a rescue centre for abandoned babies. These babies were abandoned by their desperate mothers, who are often HIV+. The babies are found in place like bushes or a rubbish dump, often underweight and with all sorts of health problems. Therefore, special (medical) care is needed. When the babies are healthy and strong enough, we will try and find a (adoptive) family for them

Solution

With your donations through Global Giving for this project, the children's home can provide the new-born babies with the healthcare they need and support them to grow up to be strong an healthy children. In addition, we can try to find the parents or relatives of the babies and secure their future by either reuniting them with their family or finding a lovely adoptive family within Kenya.

Long-Term Impact

Diani Children's Village aims to find a family for every child. There are three options: growing up at the children's home, growing up with relatives, or growing up in an adoptive family within Kenya. In this process, DCV is working closely with the Children's Department. The children are our priority and we are trying to do what is best for every single child, taking into account their different needs.
