Situated in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, Arise and Shine Children’s Home is a place of refuge for over 30 vulnerable children, who through bereavement, poverty or abuse have no family of their own able to care for them - children who might otherwise end up having to fend for themselves on the streets begging for food and sniffing glue in an effort to suppress their hunger and forget their misery.
The kids dormitory are separated by gender. Unfortunately, the boys are now sleeping in really bad conditions. When it rains (quite frequent), the water drops through the roof and the boys get wet. The walls have a lot of wholes and during the night it gets quite cold, reason why many of them get ill.
Our idea is to repair the roof and the walls ourselves, counting with some local guidance.
