It is estimated that there are between 250,000 – 300,000 orphaned children in Kenya, with roughly 7% being under the age of five years old.
With no government-operated facilities and no foster-care program to care for these children, thousands live on the streets of nearly every city.
Machakos County (one of our bases of operation in Kenya) contains over 1,000 such children.
It is for this reason, that we broke ground in October 2022 on what will become the “Anderson Rays of Hope Orphanage” in Tala, Kenya.
This facility will house 200 boys and girls as old as 18 years old.
