INDIVIDUAL SPONSORSHIP: $35 Monthly commitment
Ensure that each child is provided three meals a day. A typical daily menu consists of porridge and hot tea for breakfast, lunch is usually beans, maize (corn), and rice, and ugali (a type of stiff porridge made by mixing corn meal with boiling water: the basic starch constituent of a meal), cabbage, and kale for dinner. Meat and fresh fruits are very expensive, and are served twice a week. Individual Child Sponsorship ensure that each child at Haven Children’s Home receive the nutrition essential for growth and health.
GROUP SPONSORSHIP COMMITMENT:
Group sponsorship commitments are available and can be adjusted to meet each organizations’ budget; they assist with provisions for medical care, education fees, and building maintenance. This type of sponsorship is great for Sunday school classes, businesses, organizations, or even a small group of friends.
ONE TIME DONATION:
We always welcome your gifts, as 100% of your donation is spent on the children and considered a blessing. Your donations go toward whatever the current need or project is for the group as a whole. This could be education, healthcare, a new dorm, clothing, bedding, etc. We always welcome your gifts as 100% of your donations goes to the children. We are a volunteer based organization and have no paid staff.
EDUCATION AND HEALTHCARE ASSISTANCE:
Preventable diseases remain a serious issue in Kenya. With funding, appropriate healthcare can be accessed for each child. Education is important for these children to become self-sufficient. In Kenya, education comes with a price. Haven Children’s Home has a primary school on site for the younger children, but there is not a High School for the older children. There are two options for high school: Boarding school (which has the potential to lead to government scholarships for University) and Day school. The cost of Boarding school per student is $720 per year and Day school is $450 per year per student. We feel education is important for these children to become self-sufficient and independent; essential for breaking the cycle that these children have been subjected to most of their lives.
