At Ntimi Home of Hope, children are rescue almost on a daily basis .On the streets , dustbins,sewages sites innocent souls are left on their own. In hospitals, mothers abandon especially young mothers.Police desks are equally busy with children found lost or left on their own without care or protection.All these children of 7 years and below are brought to Ntimi Home of Hope for care and protection. Upon intake,an individual placement plan is made. This involves extensive case works,field visits,follow-ups and enough areas of networking.For those children whose guardians are found and assessed the children are given back to probation care.For those abandoned at birth and no one claiming for them,are released for foster care.Over the years Ntimi Home of Hope has grown both in quality and in magnitude. Currently, Ntimi Home of Hope is taking care and protecting 50 children in our premise and 100 children in outreach program.A major challenge is that no one comes forward to adopt an Hiv positive baby.As a result ,children who have ever tasted positive remain in the program forever or for a very long time before getting an alternative care.Over the years Ntimi Home of Hope Has steadily grown both in size and quality moving from an individual initiatives to an organization based structure .It presently caters for 150 children including babies from one day old to 18 years(abandoned,orphan, vulnerable children and those neglected).
