Our mission is to provide hope, education, and a loving Christian home for the children of Migori so that they may become the future leaders of Kenya.
A Place of Hope Children's Home, Inc. was founded in October of 2005 for the purpose of building and maintaining an orphanage in Migori, Kenya by raising funds through private donations and fund raisers. Our focus is not only to provide safe shelter in a Christian environment for these children, but to also provide them with an education and vocational training to equip them for the future.
In August of 2008 we purchase 2 1/2 acres of land in Migori, Kenya. In 2010 we drilled a well on the property, began construction on the first building, and held Vacation Bible School for 750 children in the Migori District. At present we are completing the construction of the Mission House and preparing to send another mission team to the field in 2014.
Once completed, A Place of Hope Children's Home will include a water tower, kitchen/dining hall, and two dormitories. We will have a vegetable garden and livestock to not only provide food for the orphanage, but allow the children an opportunity to learn about farming and agriculture. As we continue to grow we plan to add additional dormitories and a vocational training center.
Our goal is to have a sponsor for each child that through a monthly donation of $50 will provide food, clothing, medical care, school uniforms, a high school education, and possibly even a college education. It is not our goal to have these children adopted out of Kenya but to provide them with the tools to become successful members of their community and leaders of their country. We believe that this can only be accomplished through a moral Christian upbringing and education.
