The Home located in Kitale, Western Kenya on a 3.5 acre piece of land, has 55 children most of whom have been orphaned by HIV/Aids, marital conflicts and recent post-election violence that rocked the country. It is estimated over 50,000 children were displaced in the violence in Kitale and are now beggars on the streets. KSM rescued some of them and have joined the Kitale family. 14 children are in high school, the rest in primary schools.

 

Boarding section has one house, a kitchen, and a dining hall. With 55 children and 5 workers housed in one single house, it is beyond its capacity and a need for another  building to ease the congestion. There is a need for family and study rooms, drilling of water among other needs.
