About the Home
Mukaa Children's Home is located 2 hours south of Nairobi - just off the Mombassa Highway and into the hills of Makueni County. The home itself is on the side of a hill just up from the prestigious Mukaa Boys School. The home is as colorful as the beautiful people that occupy its premises. When you pull into the home, you will see the office block, then the girls dorm. Follow the stone path and you will reach the Dining Hall, the Kitchen and the Library. Up the stairs you will find the Boy's Dorm, the Manager's House and the Assistant Managers quarters, as well as guest housing.
The soil is red and the flowering bushes and trees make home for these children absolutely beautiful. These days you will see corn not only in the garden but dotting the hills. We have great plans for an orchard of fruit trees to further supplement the children's diets. In 2013 a borehole was drilled and the home has enjoyed clean water.
Mukaa is very invested in the community around them from the clinic to the local church and primary school. The way they see it, if the children of Mukaa Children's Home are going to be successful, the community around them must also be strengthened.
