TRANSFORMING LIVES IS OUR DEVOTION
Global Help Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre is currently home to more than 110 boys from all over Kenya that were previously living on the streets. Each boy has his own incredible story of strength and resilience, at Global Hope we take care of every single need of these boys so they can experience the childhood that was taken from them while living in the streets.
Some children have families that are unable to support them, while others are abandoned or simply have no one. On the streets, not only are these children unable to meet their basic needs for food and shelter, but they are exposed to unimaginable circumstances including drug trafficking, degradation, violence and disease.
There is an enormous stigma against street children, boys in particular, because of their tendency for violence, addictions to drugs and alcohol, and associations with criminal gangs. Their behaviour, interactions and experiences distinguish them from other rescued children. The rate of street boys being either refused into rescue centres, or running away is very high.
Global Hope is a rescue centre unlike any other children’s home in Kenya. Boys are free to come and go as they feel the need to. Most of the boys call Global their home, but some aren’t quite ready for that yet. The gates to Global Hope are never locked, meaning boys are never locked in, and also never locked out.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPONSOR ONE OF OUR BOYS?
We can’t make it alone. We need your help to ensure each and every boy at Global is receiving an education.
OUR CURRENT PROJECT: FUNDRAISING FOR LAND
We urgently need your support to purchase land to continue housing our current former street boys as well as assisting the thousands of street boys still on the streets. At Global Hope Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre we are housing around 110 former street boys, rescued from all over Kenya. Our greatest challenge currently is that we have ran out of space, the house is becoming unsafe for our boys and we risk being evicted.
We have found land, an incredible 1.5 acres just out of Ngong town and not far from our current centre for 15 million Kenyan shillings or $150,000 USD. The landlord has agreed to hold the land for 6 months ONLY to give us time to fundraise. We also have amazing local and international supporters committed to building our new centre; all we need now is the funds to purchase the land.
If you are interested in helping us with fundraising to purchase land please check out our land fundraising page or get in touch with us!
