We are inviting you to get off the beaten track and come and visit us in Thika to experience a day in the life of a former street child!

We would like to share with you both our successes and challenges and give you the opportunity to experience a side of Kenyan life that the majority of tourists fail to see.

By spending a day with our projects, we hope that you will have a unique insight into the problems facing many of Kenya’s children and give you the opportunity add another dimension to your stay here in Kenya.

The day promises not only to be a learning experience, but one full of fun and inspiration.

Our dedicated staff and children will make sure that it is something you never forget!

We ask that all visitors contribute a minimum of 1000ksh which includes all refreshments, a traditional Kenyan lunch and a project contribution.

If you would like to stay for a night at our Interim Care Centre to give you more time to explore Thika and nearby attractions (Blue Post Hotel, Fourteen Falls, Ol Donyo Sambuk National Park) we ask for a further contribution of 1000ksh –evening meal and breakfast will be provided.

Project contributions are vital to us to ensure that our programmes are run successfully. All contributions go directly into the running cost of our Interim Care Centre.

We would also be happy to accept donations in the form of clothing for the children, sports equipment (especially footballs!)., games and art materials.
