Orphanage Sponsorship Programs & Needed Supplies

  • Quality education for all the children
  • Provide clothing for all the children
  • Provide nutritional food for the children - Meaning well balanced diet for all meals of the day.
  • Salaries for all the casual workers employed by the orphanage.
  • Replacement of old domestic utilities for instance cutlery,kitchenware and furniture.
  • Renovation of the orphanage.

Education - School and Madrasa

Sending a child to school is one of the best ways to break the cycle of poverty. US Dollars 35 or its equivalent of Kshs 3150 per month per child is sufficient to provide an education in an established public school. This will provide for:

  • School fees (Tuition money)
  • School uniform and school supplies
  • Extra money for food and some drink at school
  • Extra money for sending to visit their homes once a year

Teacher Sponsorship

We currently have one teacher for Quran classes and extra tuition after school. Although the number of children is big we cannot afford to employ more than one teacher as our monthly budget does not allow us. The teacher’s monthly salary is Ksh. 5,000 per month. We would like to employ two more teachers.

Salary for each teacher would be KES 17,000 (USD 200) per month.

A small group of combined donor efforts can make a significant difference in lives of these children.

Child Caregiver Sponsorship

We need to raise salary for two Child Caregivers (‘Mothers’) who take care of the children’s needs. Currently we pay them a total of KES 11,000 (5,000 for one and 6,000 for the other). this is below the minimal wage and we wish to increase the amount to KES 10,000 per person.

Cook Sponsorship

We need a Cook to prepare meals for the children three times per day. We do not have a cook and this leaves the responsibility of preparing meals to Ms. Asha who also has to take care of the day to day activities of running the orphanage, leaving her overwhelmed with responsibilities. Cook's salary KES 10,000 but out financial situation does not allow us to hire one at the moment.
