Sponsor A Child

Most of the children arrive at Saidia in tragic circumstances. Some children have been trafficked, abandoned as newborns in bushes or even in plastic bags by the side of the road. Some come to us when their mothers are mentally ill or are delivered to us by the police. The sheer scale of the AIDS epidemic in Kenya also means that a large and growing number of orphans come to the home and need our support. 

Saidia Children's Home has a fully trained local staff including a director, manager, an education co-coordinator, 2 cooks, 2 baby nurses, a house mother and a father, a housekeeper and a night watchman. 

We educate the children to their highest potential with some attending university and others taking vocational courses. Our aim is to support them to become independent and healthy young adults.
