Huruma Orphanage

Huruma Dolor (Kiswahili for “compassionate molding”) was founded by Peter Akweyona in 2005 with a vision to provide a loving, Christian environment for homeless children in Kenya. Africa Mission & Beyond began assisting this small, native-run orphanage in 2009. The children were loved, but due to lack of funds, they were living in unsanitary conditions and not receiving proper nutrition.

AMB has partnered with Huruma and assists them with basic necessities, capital improvements, education, and self-sustainability projects. The complex has grown due to the sacrifice of donors and volunteers. Huruma is now home to over 100 orphans and educates approximately 500 children. AMB finished building a secondary school at Huruma in 2016. The primary school at the orphanage is one of the best schools in the district and continues to outperform surrounding schools.

Monthly financial needs are continual as the staff at Huruma provides and ministers to these orphans. Many of these children were neglected, abused, and had no hope. It is through the sacrifice of donors that AMB is able to give help and hope to these hurting children.

There has been no rain since our last trip and the maize crop dried prematurely on the stalk. These are the same fields that usually produce bumper crops. There is widespread drought in Kenya as a result. This also creates difficulty for the orphanage because they have to spend more on food for day to day sustenance.

The upper story has been completed for the older girls to have their own dorm. It is going to be so good for them to get out of the open temporary mud structure building they were in. The government required that they be separated from the younger girls so that was where they were staying. They got malaria much more in there and it was not secure so that they even had snakes and other animals coming in. Thankful this has been completed for them. ... See MoreSee Less
