New Hope Children's Centre

“Loving the Unloved in our Society”

Word from the Director

"God has given this generation the capacity to remove and prevent all needless suffering - by putting within our reach the resources needed to protect children from the most common diseases, to provide them with the basic necessities of food, shelter, clothing, and health care. But what is lacking has been the vision and the moral will towards this challenge."

"We believe that God is calling you to a new level of commitment on behalf of the poor. That is why we wish to intensify the urgency and the opportunity for you to be in ministry with children and impoverished people."

- Anne Chege

 

The Challenge

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." - James 1:27 (English-NIV)

About Us

New Hope Children's Centre – Uplands is a registered charitable Children's Home dedicated to lifting orphaned children out of poverty and ignorance, and giving them hope for a better future.

Our concern is to show love and kindness to them, but more especially (by God's grace) to help them 'know God and Jesus Christ whom He hath sent'.

Location

The Home is situated at Githuya Area, Uplands (about 42Km from Nairobi) along the Nairobi-Nakuru Highway – near the View-Point of the Escarpment overlooking the Great Rift Valley

Our Objectives

What we offer

We are offering basic necessities in life i.e. food, shelter, clothing, education (up to high school). Children wishing to pursue further education may do so, subject to the availability of funds. Others will be encouraged to take some training of their interest.

Our Children

We admit destitute orphan children without a home, or who are living with guardians who are unable to take care of them due to extreme poverty or physical disability. However, dire cases of poverty may also be considered.

Today there are over 130 children in the Home, who hail from the following areas: Lari Division, Banana-Kiambaa, Murang’a, Limuru, Nyeri, Gatundu, Nairobi, Kiambu, Kinangop, Ol Kalou, Nyandarua, Samburu

Funding

The Home relies solely on the benevolence and generosity of individual/corporate wellwishers for its survival. Any help (in cash or in kind) is highly appreciated.

How the Home begun

Mr. & Mrs. Chege (formerly employees of Bank of Baroda & Barclays Bank respectively) brought up, in their home, several orphans and destitute children together with their four children.

They later on left employment and went into full-time ministry, as volunteers in service of the Most High God. Their children too assist in this work.

The Home was officially opened on 16th April 2000 with Mr. & Mrs. Chege as the Directors of the Home

Facilitators

At present, Mr. & Mrs. Chege run the Home as full-time volunteers, assisted by 12 staff and a committee of 9 members.

Occasionally volunteers from the local community and abroad do come to assist.
