Project 82 Kenya, Inc.

  • We believe that orphanages and group homes are a compassionate response to the orphan crisis but that a child has the best opportunity to thrive in a family environment. We are therefore committed to ministry solutions that support empowering community and family to protect and care for the orphans among them. While our goal is to keep children with family and community, our approach may vary as we employ different strategies based on the diversity in the communities that we serve.
