Bringing Hope To The Hopeless

Our primary mission is redeeming the lives of widows and orphans in Kenya.  To do that, our main thrust is direct orphans care in children's homes.  Every location houses orphans in dorms and include apartments for the widows who care for them.  They have latrines, a modern kitchen, a clinic, and a dining hall where the local church meets. KWO supported orphanages are always built with the partnership of a local World Bible School Church that has been actively supporting orphans before recieving support from us.  Our orphanages are overseen by a former or current WBS follow-up workers who have established trust with us over a period of years. Each site employes a manager, guards and multiple widows to care for the kids.
