A rescue centre / orphanage for vulnerable children
Social work and community projects
Cecilia’s Children is a registered charity in western Kenya which operates in the rural village of Kisumu. Currently in its very early stages of development, Cecilia’s children has plans to open up an orphanage and rescue centre providing education and shelter for vulnerable children in the area.
WHERE WE WORK
We work in a little village in Kisumu, western Kenya. Kisumu has been devastatingly affected by the HIV/AIDs epidemic that has terrorised the Nyanza region for decades, leaving families vulnerable and impoverished. Cecilia’s children works alongside the community to bring hope and opportunity and a future to hundreds of children.
Our Mission is to provide opportunities for a better future to the disadvantaged children of Kisumu. We aim to support children and young people exposed and exploited in child labour, sex trades and caught in a cycle of extreme poverty. We want to see every child given the opportunity for a real childhood.
