About Baby Blessing
Baby Blessing Children’s Home is a charitable Organization REGISTERED under the Ministry of Gender, Social and Children Services. It is a rescue center , a place of hope and home for the homeless .Currently it houses between 45 and 55 children who are either or both; orphans, abandoned , neglected, abused , HIV/AIDS positive or those whose only traceable parent or guardian has both a terminal illness and is bedridden.
Baby Blessing Children’s Home aims at providing shelter, food, clothes, education and health care for the children; above all restoring the dignity of the Kenyan child and creating a hopeful future through counseling, love, care and mentorship.
The institution was initiated in 2011 by Irene Gakii Mwirigi in the plight to give orphaned and vulnerable children a second chance in life and rejuvenate their potential as well as save them from the cruelty they were put through. She housed 6 neglected and abandoned children in her own house and later found them a rental three bedroomed house in Umoja, Tena Estate, Embakasi Constituency in Nairobi.
Baby Blessing is committed to the orphans, abused, abandoned and HIV/AIDS both affected and affected children in the community by being a center of excellence through rehabilitating, re-integration and fostering.
Lift the Children's partial monthly funding has gone towards the most critical things like rent, food and paying the caregivers to ensure the little angels have a good start in life. In the past seven years of our partnerships we have seen one day old baby, grow to become school going children, some have been lucky to be adopted in a loving family after due process has been followed while many have grown to become young people full of hope and energy.
