About Us

The House of Hope Foundation levels the playing field for orphaned children in Kenya who were given a tough hand in life. By harnessing the power of a global support network, a holistic care model and unrealistic expectation, we’re in the business of providing big opportunities to a small, but audacious group of young children with near-infinite potential.

Located on the outskirts of Nairobi, the Lord’s House of Hope orphanage utilizes everyday necessities —a loving and supportive environment, a healthy diet, medical care, spiritual guidance, access to technology and heightened educational standards— to support the personal growth and well-being of our kids. We believe in developing the next generation of Kenyan leaders in Kenya, and work to build strong and sustainable local support networks for our children that will last a lifetime.

We measure success one child at a time. Scroll down to get to know our kids, connect with us on social media or donate to our cause.
