Short-Term (few weeks/months)


Mombasa County


The main goal of this project is to support, nurture and improve the lives of orphans and children that have been subjected to poverty and abuse by providing them with food, shelter and education.

The staff provides physical and emotional support, spiritual nurturing and lots of tender loving care. We encourage and give hope to each and every child. With the right help and committed support we help these children turn their lives around. We believe that every child deserves the best start in life and a chance to fulfill their potential and we therefore support them, stand up for them and bring out the best in each and every child.

The project aims to serve the poor and vulnerable by facilitating access to basic health, social and economic needs through capacity building, advocacy and skill development as a means to reduce poverty, discrimination, encourage talent and improve the quality of their lives.

• Taking care of the children as well as playing with them
