Just before you close this page, just have a moment a read... Proverbs 19:17 whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will reward them for what they have done.

Dream Children’s Home is the realization of my dream to care for orphaned children. After telling my husband about opening our house to some orphaned children, he agreed to support my dream. So we created a space in our home to share what we have with the orphaned children. We have three children of our own: two sons and a daughter.

My desire to care for the less fortunate started from when I was a young girl. Being brought up in a slum by a single parent, I witnessed how children were suffering after being abandoned by their parents due to alcoholism or poverty and orphans who were left destitute after the death of their parents.

In February 2005 I went to the Ministry of Social Services to express my desire to help the needy children and after hearing that children were already living in our home; they agreed to register us as an orphanage. So today we are registered under the Ministry of Home Affairs as a charitable institution.

We then put up a sign to advertise the orphanage to the public; the children’s office and the communities at large have been knocking at our door with orphaned children who have no one to take care of them. We intend to keep the children till they are 19 years old unless they are still in education. You can read more from our website https://www.dreamchildrenhome.org/

Our home has now grown to have 287 children in total. We are thankful for the support we have received since we started. We recently acquired land where we want to build accommodation for the children, we cannot do it on our own, that is why we are calling for your help. We need to raise $100,000 to put up a 4-floor hostel with 75 rooms that will host our children. If this message moves you, please stand with us and help us realize our dream. The children need us.

God bless you abundantly
