Targeting: Re-integration with Community and Family, Quality of Care

Project Summary: 
Our latest sustainable project at the Journey of Hope orphanage in Thika, Kenya, is a greenhouse + 1 hectare of land cultivation farm project. This income generating project will transform the quality of nutrition for children living at JOH, and provide income to support the centre’s social welfare programs in the community. These programs include outreach in the form of school and food sponsorship for over 130 children living with their families. These children are at risk of becoming social orphans due to the extreme level of poverty their families are in.

Projected Income (Annual) : $6,333.00

Number of Children Impacted : 170 Children Total. 20 living full time at the JOH centre, 150 which the centre supports through their outreach programs

 

Impact

Short term:

  • Transform the quality of nutrition for the children living in the home, by providing fresh and nutritious fruits and vegetables from the greenhouses.

Long term:

  • Once income begins to be generated, it will be used to pay for the employment of the social worker that will help reintegrate children back to their communities, as well as continue the outreach program which JOH currently runs.

Partner Background: 
Journey of Hope is located in Thika, Kenya. They provide critical care to 20 children who live in the center, and provide care in the form of supplemental nutrition and education costs for over 100 children in their outreach programs. The children in their outreach programs are able to live with their families and communities as they receive critical needs. Children in the center are provided shelter, psycho-social support, and reintegration support as they seek to reunite with their families or find new families to live with permanently.
