Mukaa Children's Home

Creating a better tomorrow for the abandoned and orphaned children of Kenya.

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.

How You Can Help...

Sponsor a Child

Since 2009, Sustained Acts has been partnering with the leadership of the AIC Mukaa Children’s Home, to sponsor orphaned and abandoned children as well as to provide funding for other needs at the home. 100% of the monies received are wired directly to the Children's Home.

COST OF SPONSORSHIP

For $60.00 a month you can provide one of these orphaned children:

  • 3 meals a day

  • a safe place to sleep

  • primary education

  • clothing & school supplies

  • medical attention

  • social & emotional care

  • spiritual guidance.

As you can see, the Home ministers to the whole child - his or her physical, mental, social and spiritual needs.

Provide the Gift of Education

Sustained Acts is committed to providing every child in our care with an education, so they receive a strong foundation for a successful future. After 9th grade, children leave the home for Secondary School. The average cost/year of Secondary School is $700. From there, based on test scores, they may qualify to attend a College or University. Those who do not qualify for Secondary School or College, are eligible to attend Polytechnical school to learn a trade. The average cost per year of Trade School is $1,000, while the average cost of attending University is $2,000. We currently have 35 children in Secondary School, 14 in Trade School, 10 in College/University, and another 2 waiting to join College/University. Educational fees have grown to over $35,000/year and remain one of our greatest needs.

Support On-going Capital Needs

As you might imagine, running a household of 122 children and 11 staff members has its challenges. Just as with your home, our home needs to be maintained, including things like painting, updating electrical systems, and rebuilding structures/retaining walls that are failing.   

 

We are also constantly looking for ways to create sustainable projects that will serve to benefit the children long term. Things like the borehole for clean water and the planting of a garden for fresh vegetables.  Below is a list of our top priorities for 2023 and beyond.  

  • Complete current build projects using the funds raised by one of our sponsors. This includes building a new Guest House and a Home for our Manager.

  • Rebuild walls and fences that have recently failed due to heavy rains this November.

  • Demolish and construct a new Girl's dormitory. The current structure is beginning to fail.

  • Build a Fence/Perimeter wall around the entire home, and new gates with security rooms and a washroom

  • Provide solar lighting throughout the home and solar garden lights with motion sensors around the home

  • Upgrade the dining hall roof, ceiling, and tables 

  • Repair the Boy's dormitory roof (i.e iron sheets)

  • Construct a Garden Store

  • Purchase a new car for the home. Possibly a double cabin truck

  • Provide required maintenance for the home's existing buildings

  • Purchase perimeter fence for borehole

Asante

Thank you!
