Project 2017

After all the building projects at our children’s home it is now in excellent condition. Beside different rooms, which allow us to give the kids of different ages a solid home, we have a kitchen garden, a big place to play and enjoy. The trees we planted the year before have grown quite a bit! There is also a see-saw which not only the younger but also the older kids enjoy using. We have a rabbit which Peter takes lovingly care of and – 16 new kids! We admitted 12 boys and 4 girls aged five to twelve years. These lively little rascals will keep us busy in the coming years! We don’t only support the kids who live in our home, but we also support 12 so-called external kids at the moment. Those are kids who we paid the school fee for but who live with their families.
Some of our older kids – Nancy, Faith and Esther – will take part in the exams at the end of Primary School (KCPE). These exams take place all over the country. We keep our fingers crossed an whish them good luck!
