About Us

Every child has the right to have a safe 'home'

We offer a solid foundation for children who don't have a safe 'home' in Kenya and had to be rescued because of abuse in any way whatsoever or have been deserted by their family. By offering a stable home in Kiota children's support center, the future of these children will look much brighter. We believe every child - no matter where in this world - has the right to grow up with their parents or other loving family members, but if that's not possible any time soon, we will support the child itself together with the family with the aim they can be reunited again.

Next to Kiota, we have our project 'The Kiota Dream'. This will give us the space we need to work to the full potential of the children and their families! You can read more about it below.

Education is very important

Additionally, we think that every child should get the opportunity to at least finish primary school and secondary school. This will increase their chances to find a job. We even support them to continue with either vocational education or university. In this way we contribute to break the cycle of poverty. Next to all that, it is nice to hear that most of our children wish to help their family or other people who are in the same situation as they used to be.

The Kiota Dream

Since 2012, Kiota Children’s Support Center is located in a rental home where children, employees, visitors and volunteers all come together. Additionally, renting a home is always a risk, because it will be the end for us if the owner wants his house back. We would like to accomplish more to start self income generating projects, reunite the families and teach them how to be self-reliant. Therefore we need more space.

In 2021/2022 we hope to finally start constructing houses on our 3 acre piece of land we purchased in 2021.
