About Us

Greetings from Mumias, Kenya.

Hello, my name is Collins.  I am 25 years old and three years ago seeing the need of these children I started an Orphanage and School.  Today we have one hundred and one kids, both boys and girls.  Our orphanage is poor, it’s no secret.  We struggle to keep food and clothes for the children.  One of the things we do is raise laying hens.  We also plant maize (you may call it corn), peanuts, peas, kale, and are trying tomatoes too.  We moved to a home given to us by my Uncle James, so the kids will have a place to live, rent free.  This gift saves us close to 200 dollars each month.

We have no electricity.  We use lamps at night to see.  We have no running water.  We have a well and a bucket on a rope.  We are a primary school (we home school) and educate the children so they may pass the Primary Testing for kids to graduate to Secondary school.  We do our best.  Obviously we can use help and it would be a joy to host a visit for you at the Orphanage and School in Mumias, located in western part of Kenya.

Sincerely, Collins Kokonya

This is before the move in April 2014.  Don’t these boys look like “normal” kids.  They are!

James 1:27

 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:

to look after orphans and widows in their distress

and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

One thought on “About Us

  1. I definitely plan to sponsor a child in this orphanage, but I am going to have to redirect some of my other giving in order to do it.
