“Rehema” is the Swahili word for mercy.

Why We Do It

Rehema Home is a place of safety for children escaping dire domestic situations. We are a true home for children where they can learn how to live a life, learn how to love each other, and learn how to be a part of this big world.

 
 

Our Mission

For the last twenty years, we have been rescuing orphaned and abandoned children in Kenya. We currently care for just under 100 children, half of whom are HIV positive. We have two locations, one in urban Nairobi and one in rural Bukura.

We cover the cost of education from preschool through high school and beyond.

Transportation

We provide rides to school, doctors appointments, church, and more.

Clothes & Shoes

We provide clothes for every occasion—school uniforms, play clothes, and Sunday best.

You will receive a financial statement at the end of each calendar year. Our constitution states that no more than 20% of our budget should go towards administrative costs and fundraising. That means that 80% or more of every dollar is spent on direct care of the children or on expansion projects.
