Global Hope Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre is currently home to more than 130 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 these children are unable to meet their basic needs for food and shelter, but they are exposed to unimaginable circumstances including drug trafficking, degradation, violence and diseases.
There is an enormous stigma against street children, boys in particular, because of their tendency to violence, addictions to drugs and alcohol, and associations with criminal gangs. Their behaviours, 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.
We can’t make it alone. We need your help to ensure each and every boy at Global is receiving an education.
BECOME A SPONSOR TODAY
Thanks to the support received, Global Hope Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre was able to successfully buy a large piece of land to guarantee a safe and adequate place for all the children.
For this, we want to thank from the bottom of our hearts everyone who contributed, for all the support you have been giving us through this long, but exciting journey.
Now, we have started working on the land by creating a murram road which leads from the main road to the purchased land. Planting of several fruit trees also took place, but many more steps are yet to come to ensure the new location will soon be a warm and welcoming home for the boys!
