Arise and Shine is a registered non-profit making organisation that seeks to provide the love and stability of a supportive family, essential for the wellbeing and development of the children in its care.

Situated in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, the home is a place of refuge for around 25 vulnerable children, who through bereavement, poverty or abuse have no family of their own able to care for them.

Mission Statement

At Arise and Shine, we endeavour to help every child that comes into our home to fulfil his or her potential and aspiration in life, through education, good health and social welfare. More importantly, we aim to give our children the opportunity to excel in their ambitions by providing the love and stability of a supportive family that encourages integrity in conduct and moral values within a Christian ethos.

About Us

Since its beginning in 2005, our home has become well established and bears witness to God's goodness in how many children's lives have been both spared and transformed.

We are fully registered with the Kenyan Government and Provincial Children's Welfare Department from whom many of the current children were originally referred. We also strive to support the neighbouring community through employing local staff and buying local produce.

When welcomed into our home, the children become part of our family. They are provided with clothes, including Sunday Best, receive a balanced diet and are given the opportunity to attend school - in addition we give them the chance to learn relevant skills around the home and on the land, so that as they approach adulthood they are able to become self-supporting. We are proud to report that all the children who have been through our home are faring well, - some working in prestigious hotels in the country's capital city, one in another children's home and two now married with children of their own.
