The primary goal of the project is to restore hope and provision of basic needs to orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya. Dream Children’s Home takes care of destitute, orphaned and abandoned children.
The objectives are to rehabilitate the children with interpersonal development skills through education, medical care, building of their self-esteem and social living skills. We equip children with psychosocial skills that will enable them to live responsibly in the community. We provide a nutritional diet to all children to help eradicate malnutrition and encourage healthy body and mind growth. We also provide a child-friendly living atmosphere for the children. Furthermore, we initiate income-generating activities to sustain the Home and we empower local families with small business skills so that they can improve their income in readiness for the reintegration of the children back into the community.
The project has a feeding program where it ensures that children get a well-balanced diet and three meals a day. In response to the millennium development goals for 2015, the project has endeavored to provide education needs to all the children in the home. We have pre-school, primary and secondary pupils. With our dormitories and the main family house, we provide shelter for all the children. They are living together as brothers and sisters under the care of two parents. The program provides clothing and school uniforms to the children. Medical care is provided to all children. The home provides ongoing psychosocial counselling for the children through networking with pro-bono counselors who provide invaluable counseling to the children. We have income generating activities as the home has four milk cows (Friesian) that provide milk to sell locally, supplementing the Home’s already strained budget.
