What We Do
AIDS has decimated communities in Africa and it has created a generation of orphans. There is no social safety net for these children and they are dependent on outside support. In 2015, The Place church began a ministry to care for the orphans in Busia, Kenya. We started as an orphanage for three children. We now support over 250 children and we’re growing. Timothy’s House feeds, shelters, and educates these wonderful children. There’s still more to be done.
Where We're Going
Our rapid growth is due to the pandemic and death of parents. Some have been abandoned by single parents that have disappeared. We have staff that works with our kids and the legal system in Kenya. Our goal, through the support of donors, sponsors, and volunteers is to make Timothy’s House Orphanage self-sufficient through agricultural and industrial training. We are teaching children that had no hope to learn and become self-sufficient.
How To Help
One-time donations, child sponsorship or mission trip participation are a few ways you may participate. We are always eager to hear from you and look forward to your support.
