New Rules for Kenyan Orphanages

            REORGANIZATION:  Mercy Thuo reports that there will be changes in the operation of The Good Samaritan Children’s Home.  Children’s homes and orphanages will have to adjust policies to be in compliance with government rulings.  The official title of children’s welfare in Kenya will change to “Charitable Children’s Institutions,” ICC, affecting the governance, organizational structure, programs and physical structures.  The Good Samaritan Children’s Home will have to move into compliance by 2030.  Objectives of the ICC are scholarship for basic education and vocational training, basic needs, and medical care.  These are the objectives for which GSCH can accept funds.  As we move forward, we will need to cooperate with the Good Samaritan Home and the Kenyan Goverment's rulings.
