Putting Smiles on Their Faces

Here at Homa Bay Children’s Home, we believe that every kid deserves a chance. They are the hope of our country. With the help of awesome partners like you, we’ve been able to provide the basic commodities for them. Together, let’s be part of their story. 

We Believe in Education as a Liberating Power

Our kids are at different levels of their studies, from pre-unit all the way through college.

They are the Future of Our country

Our kids have stood up in charitable events and campaigns that aid in national cohesiveness. These include Peace campaigns, the Tribeless etc.

Who We Are


Homabay orphans children home/project was started due occurrence of a natural calamity when lightning struck and killed a mother who has just converted into Christianity leaving behind a one-week-old infant, the missionaries, not knowing what to do with the infant (Esther Juma), took the infant into their home.  This prompted the registration of the Home in the year 1969.  Read Our Entire Story

I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway… let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.
