About Hope for Children Kenya
Hope for Children was started in 2000 and registered in 2010 with the intention of giving back to the community. Director Pamela Adhiambo, who struggled to access education as a young girl, wanted to offer opportunity and hope to unfortunate children from different backgrounds.
Born in rural Nyanza, Pamela faced deep poverty and left school in Grade 4, later becoming employed as household help in Nairobi. An early marriage, which she hoped would lead her to success, left her feeling disillusioned and abused. She chose to settle down as a businesswoman and raise her three children as a single mother. Today, Pamela acts as a parent to many orphans and vulnerable individuals, helping them develop positive worldviews and a new life story.
Hope for Children is currently challenged with providing children access to digital learning platforms as a result of the pandemic. The home would also like to continue paying for healthy food and medical care, particularly when hospital treatment is necessary.
