Education Safety Home Love for Endangered Orphans

by Hearth to Hearth Ministries Vetted since 2013 Site Visit Verified


Over 2 million orphans are at risk in Kenya/Uganda. Our mission is to house, educate and provide safety to as many as possible in our two centers. Our school in Kenya provides education for over 150 of our own orphans plus others from the community who cannot afford a uniform to attend local schools. Our children were once at high risk for disease, crime, and sex trafficking. We provide a loving home, education through high school and beyond, health care, nutritious food and life skills

monthly donors


There are 200,000 orphans/endangered children in Homa Bay county where Hope Center is located. They are at risk for sexual abuse, disease, starvation, with no opportunities for education. High poverty rates and lack access to medical care, clean water, or hygiene impact the economic development of the area. Without intervention, these children will either not reach adulthood, or will live a life of misery. The children often turn to prostitution, crime and picking through refuse just for food.


Our project gives orphans/endangered children a safe home, medical care, nutritious food and a loving staff to care for them. They attend our on-campus school until grade eight, after which they advance to high school. We have a large farm, teaching them how to grow food, care for livestock, and harvesting. Most do not speak English on arrival, preprimary prepares them to do their lessons in English in our school where it is the primary language.They live with us until completion of high school.

Long-Term Impact

We concentrate on empowering the girl child, fostering equality in all areas. Our center has served over 350 children since 2001. Our graduates are engineers, teachers, nurses, police and government officials, chefs and farmers. Most work in the community to benefit at risk children and have stayed involved with Hope Center as their home. This benefits the entire community and Kenya at large by fostering economic/technology/and infrastructure development. Education is necessary to progress.
