The Home was started in 2004 by the Diocese to cater for the growing number of children from disadvantaged families in the category of orphans and vulnerable children from the larger Thika district. These are the children orphaned through the death of their parents mainly through HIV/AIDS and/or other causes, and hence lack the necessary provisions needed for their growth and development. These children could otherwise be faced with disillusionment in realizing their potential necessary to enable them take their place in society as responsible citizens.
