Our goal is to support 60 children each year

Help free these children .

Every child has the right to grow up in a loving and safe environment
To us, that seems obvious, but for many children in Kenya, unfortunately, this is not the case. Kilifi province is home to 231,000 children. Nearly half of these children are at risk of (sexual) abuse, neglect and/or maltreatment. They desperately need our help. Kenya Child Care ensures that these children grow up in a safe environment. We can't do that alone. That's where we need you support. With your support we provide safety, shelter, (psychological) care and guidance for these children. We shower them with lots of attention, compassion and love, and we help to give them a safe return to family. This way, we give every child a home. You can really make a difference in a child's life.

Rescue center .

We provide safety and a place to live, heal and grow. The rescue center of Kenya Child Care is a temporary shelter based in Kilifi. Here we accommodate 20 children who have been removed from a situation of acute need. We are doing everything we can to find these children a safe place for the future.


Release and give shelter

We provide children with primary care and a safe place to stay.


Medical check

Children’s health is important. Each child is medically examined upon entry. If necessary, we will arrange for appropriate treatment.


Therapy and education

Our children are mentored psychologically by our psychologist. For the safety of the children, the teacher comes to our location.



Rehabilitation followed by possible reunification with the family takes place under the supervision of our psychologist.

We couldn't do any of this without our team .

When the children come into our home, they are met by one of our housemothers. They make sure the child feels welcome and makes him or her feel settled at the rescue center. Our psychologist provides appropriate treatment regarding trauma processing and accompanies the child in a medical examination or in a court case and supports or mediates rehabilitation with the family. The safety of the children is guaranteed in part by the guards at the rescue center.

They are present both day and night. The children cannot leave the grounds for their own safety so a teacher is present 5 days a week. This way the children don't get too much behind. The grounds and our vegetable garden are maintained by our gardener with help from the children. These loving and qualified people are directed by our manager.
