African Orphanage


Core Values

We intentionally seek to apply these values in all of our endeavors

Mercy:  We serve Jesus by giving food, clothing, shelter and care to orphans and street children (Mathew 25:35-36)

Empowerment:  Wherever possible we work with the local community to empower them to participate in the development and management of all supported projects

Vocation:  We seek local and international volunteers and people who see this as an opportunity to serve Jesus.  We welcome as volunteers all within the family of Christian faith.

Sound Doctrine:  Our statement of faith emphasizes the traditional essentials of Christianity

Christian Growth: We encourage our volunteers to grow in their faith by serving and worshiping with believers of Kenya

Training: We seek to teach and train the community to “bake bread so that they may bake bread for the rest of their lives.”

Discipleship: Disciplining is one of our primary principle activities.  In whatever service we provide, we are training others to take our place.

Financial: To be transparent in all matter associated with money providing a complete accountability for all resources received
