House of Hope currently cares for 160 children, primarily through our child sponsorship program. The main focus of House of Hope is providing a well-rounded, excellent education and skills training program in order to offer each child hope for the future. Starfish Kenya and House of Hope partner closely to provide care for the whole child physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In addition to education and skills training, support from Starfish Kenya provides 24/7 care while the children are on campus, including food, clothing, shelter, supplies and basic health care. Our recent high school graduates are entering various colleges. Their expenses are also provided through sponsorship and our Higher Education fund.

Through the support of donors over the years, Starfish Kenya has been able to provide 22 acres for the expansion of facilities for more children at House of Hope, funding for the House of Hope School, which consists of preschool through high school with a state of the art chemistry lab, a multi-purpose building for church and other events, a playground and sports fields for recreation, a water well, a sanitary sewer treatment system, development of farmland, and many enrichment activities for the children and staff.

We have developed a strong bond of friendship and trust with House of Hope, sharing in both the joys they have experienced and the burdens they have carried. Thanks to the support of Starfish Kenya, House of Hope has been able to give hope to more and more orphaned and disadvantaged children, many of whom were in critical condition. With the love and individual care given at House of Hope, the transformation in the children is truly astounding.
