About Emmanuel hope Centre
Emmanuel Hope Centre has been in existence for the last 10 years- Started by a single mother, it was an outcome of a bitter inner conflict between choosing to stand by and watch or doing something. Jane was initially a hawker, she sold her wares in the streets of Nairobi and it’s here where she came in contact with the street children.
Her long engagement and interaction with street children led her to initiate this project. LTC visited the Centre and interacted with over 46 children. We listened about stories of each of the children, their experiences and how Emmanuel Hope Centre was giving them second hope, this inspired us to add them on our list of sponsored children homes.
The Centre receives orphaned, vulnerable and destitute children from the Department of children, police, local authorities and even have street children who have been bitten with life on the streets. They have transformed hundreds of children and continue to do so despite the difficulties they face.
Emmanuel Hope Centre team is not just sitting and waiting for help to fall from the skies, they are actively involved in farming activities, they grow vegetables, keep a few chicken and pigs. However, Lift the children support has opened their door towards a better environment for all the children. It will improve diet needs, help sustain school attendance and improve investment into the farming activities to bring about self reliance. The training will also ensure that they acquire skills to improve quality of care over time
