About the Orphanage
Bondeni Children Rescue Centre is a children’s home in the heart of Athi River town located at Site Estate. BONDENI Children Centre started as a feeding program. In the heart of BONDENI Slums in Athi River Town in the year 2014. The program targeted the children who had dropped out of school due to various issues occasioned either by poverty, death of parents, separation and parental negligence abuse and mistreatment and therefore left desperately to feed for themselves.
Bondeni means “in the valley” and Bondeni wants to move and scale the heights to fulfill and attain the aspirations of the children.
The home is now seven years old and registered and is now hosting a home to 80 children, both boys and girls aged between 2 and 17 years. We have an outreach program of another 20 children who reside with their guardians within the community where we follow up on them by providing some basic needs and facilitating the provision of bursaries for school fees for others. We aim to reach out many more needy kids as we build up our capacities'
Bondeni supports the most needy and vulnerable children, the children in their center are genuine and from trusted government agencies and other verifiable local sources.
Lift the children support is currently going towards supporting feeding, school fees and paying of bills like electricity and water.
It’s run by a couple Mr and Mrs Gitau- who have committed their life and resources to give a better life to the children.
