Our Children in Children's Garden Home
 
CHILDREN OF LESSER SUNSHINE

Every child who came to live in the Children's Garden Home has a story. Unfortunately, none are happy ones. Although most children stepped into our home with a fearful heart filled with anxiety and traumas, their faces soon blossom into cheery smiles through our parental care and unconditional love. Hence, a new chapter begins for these little souls.

 

MIGHTY OAK-TO-BEs

Every child is an acorn born with the potential of a mighty oak tree. All he needs is watering of love and nourishment of knowledge to help him soar to his greatest height. YOU too can play a role to help us in the development and growth of these children, many of whom are filled with aspiration to excel and to serve.

Ng'ang'aNg'ang'a
1+ years old

Baby Ng'ang'a was tragically abandoned by his mother at birth. Thanks to a good samaritan who picked him up from the street and sent him to Children's Garden Home. Little Ng'ang'a may never know who are his real parents, but he certainly has a Daddy and Mum in Moses and Sylvia, and a big family of sisters and brothers to play and grow up with now.

 

 

JamesJames
5 years old

James was a 3 year old infant when he was accidentally knocked over by a motorbike in the slum. While his little life was saved at the Kenyatta Hospital, no one came for him for about 2 years. The hospital sent baby James to Children's Garden Home in 2011, where he now receives parental love from Moses and Sylvia, a big family and a home he can call his own.

SilasSilas Mang'ong'o
& Minor Junior

5 & 12 years old

Silas was 1 year old when he was brought to Children's Garden Home in 2007. His adopted mother passed away and his father could not be found. A kind sister from a Catholic Church brought both Silas and his elder 8 year old brother, Minor, to the home. Under the care and love of our big family, Silas is now a great singer and rapper whilst Minor likes to repair and fix things, a sign of an engineer-to-be.

 

 

NelimaNelima Metrine
14 years old

Nelima was 11 years old when she was brought to the Children's Garden Home in 2009. She was abused and locked up in her home until she was rescued. The trauma greatly affected Nelima and she was fearful of people, even someone as fatherly as Moses, the founder of Children's Garden Home. We helped her with weekly counseling and she has improved greatly. She now feels safe and happy.

Stella NirereStella Nirere
18 years old in Form 3

"I have been here for 7 years from 2004. My home was in Rwanda and my parents died in the Rwanda genocide when I was very young. I lived with my grandmother until she passed away. My aunt brought me to Nairobi, Kenya to get an education but I when I got here, I was made to do household chores, to cook and clean. One day, I was told to leave the house and not to return. I walked out and met Mr Marcellus, the manager of Children's Garden Home. I asked him where can an abandoned child go to for help and he brought me here. I'm so happy to have many brothers and sisters here in the home and to have an education. I want to be a nurse after I finish school so that I can take care of suffering children. I also want to come back to help the young ones just like I was helped. I will bring them clothes and food and teach them too."

 

Jackson GacigiJackson Gacigi
23 years old in Standard 6.

“I came from the street. Here at Children's Garden Home, I received education and also learnt about how to live life. My dream is to be a musician as I'm good at singing and dancing. I like the children at the home and when some of them come to me for advice, like after a fight, I will tell them to take care of each other and not to fight.”

Jackson was brought to our home when he was about 12 years old. He was drinking and involved in criminal activities on the street. Many times, he would run away and be brought back to the home time and again. He was eventually put into prison for 3 years and returned to our home. Today, Jackson is free from his drinking habit and is happy to start school education despite his age, play football and cook for the home.

 

DARE TO DREAM, PROUD TO SHINE

MUSIC EXCELLENCE
 

We are the defending champion for traditional dance in the Kenya Primary School category. Our traditional dances are as uniquely rich in diversity as the tribal mixes of our children, and they showcase so well the Kenyan cultural and tribal heritage.

DRAMA EXCELLENCE
 

Our drama team had an opportunity to perform in Stockholm, Sweden in the Opera House for an audience of 300 in 2009. The performance was so moving that it attracted the attention of the Swedish nation to not only our home but also Kenya and Africa.

SPORT EXCELLENCE
 

Children's Garden Home team beat the Nigerian team 3-0!The home has a strong football team both boys and girls. The girl’s football team is still the defending champion of Dagorreti Districts, while the boy’s team was placed 2nd in Nairobi Youth Football Inter-School Competition, in 2003 and 2008.

Most of the children played football barefooted as they could not afford proper football boots. Despite that, they keep on scoring goals and winning matches. It shows that even with the bare minimum, these children can score in life!

Moses Ndung'u

"Our vision is to help these children from the slums to grow up with an empowered mindset, with a positive attitude and with good knowledge and skills to make a difference not only to their own lives, but also that of the community where they come from. This is why our home is situated right next to the slums. While these children grow up with a positive difference, they must remain rooted to their families and community, and not moved away from the slum. As they grow up in our home, we constantly identify ways for them to make a helpful impact in the neighbourhood. Our children have come from the slum, and that is where they must feel belonged to. They are our hope to become an instrument of change to transform and uplift the slum community."

 

Ex-Pupil & Volunteer
Job Wanjala

Job Wanjala

"My name is Job Wanjala and I'm 23 years old. I was rescued by the Children’s Garden Home in 2003 when I was a young boy and that made me one of the earliest beneficiaries of the home. I used to live in a pathetic environment, and my parent could not afford to send me to school. I did not have access to even basic needs. Children's Garden Home supported my education right from secondary level. I cherished the opportunity so I worked hard and in 2010, I graduated from the University of Nairobi with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. I'm grateful to Children's Garden Home. Nowadays, I return to the home as a volunteer, giving tuition to the secondary pupils there, and motivating the children to work hard and aim high."
