Boys are phase three of our network of children who will become the adults defeating the causes of poverty around them. Boys complete the network.
Rescuing from sexual and labor abuses
Boys in coastal Kenya are sold into child labor or are sexually abused with nobody to defend their rights.
Often when we rescue a girl from an abusive situation there is a man involved. By raising boys correctly we don’t just postpone abuse of girls, we prevent it.
high demand for boys' homes
Nearly all the homes around us are for girls. Often when we rescue a girl there is also a brother. What do we do for him?
- 2.6 Million Street children in Kenya
- 1 in 12 Children die before age 5
- $1 trillion In aid spent in Africa in the past 60 years

see how to
This year we are building four boys’ homes to complete the network of children who will be the adults defeating the causes of the poverty they were born into.
is used to build 4 boys' homes
The homes we are building are designed to last. We’ve sourced materials that are not only durable and intended to last for decades to come, but we’ve gotten our materials down to $60 per square foot. Compare that to the average of $1,000 per square foot in new york city
2 Staff & Labor
We work local and western architects and contractors to design and construct the best living environments built for the long term. And local labor to provide local jobs.
We hire local carpenters to make high quality durable furniture at a much lower cost than buying.
We are building homes to make boys feel like children in a family not orphans in an institution and our amenities reflect that.
