Mission Statement


In the first instance, we want to look after the children of Kisii who have lost one or both parents or who, for whatever reason are vulnerable. We also want to offer counselling to those children who do not need a home, but are vulnerable in some way. In order to do this KCIS Shild Support Centre has acquired some land on which we are going to build a home for these disadvantaged children. Presently, the childen on our register are fostered out to families in the town. This is costly and makes it difficult to ensure that the children receive all the care they need. With this in mind, we are looking at the possibility of renting houses into which we can install the most needy children. To raise funds to build the home (or rent the houses), to look after the children presently in the care of the centre, and children who may come into their care in the future.

Description


Twiga Children's Home (formerly Mercy Gate Champion Children's Home) part of the KCIS Child Support Centre and is a non-profit organization (seeking NGO status) based in Kisii, Kenya, that is run by a team of volunteers. The centre has been established to give support and aid to children with problems, with shelter, food, clothes, education and conselling. We are financed purely by donations and the amount of work we can do is proportional to the amount of money we receive - but we never turn a needy child away. The centre was founded by Abigail and Vincent. They inherited a plot of land and rather than do what most Kenyans do - build their home on it - they decided to dedicate it to the orphans of Kisii. So, they founded the home. They have the children, but as yet, no home. But this is just the beginning of the story. Now, we need two dormitories, a dining/cooking block, washing block and a leisure/study block. We also intend to have a vegetable plot so that the children can grow their own food. We already have banana and avocado trees and a small pineapple plot.
