Being just 9 yrs.’ old we have not been able to acquire a long term donor and therefore have been relying on the community for the day to day provisions and short term sponsors for the payment of the rents of the premises at use. It is because of this that we began projects in pursuit of self-sustenance as follows;
Baby Blessing Education Centre is a registered community school began as a result of the unrelenting challenge of education for our children. The school is sited on a rental premises just opposite the home and has classes from Baby Class to Standard two. The school not only does it provide education for our children but also children from the surrounding community. it is growing tremendously with a current population of about 56 but majority being baby blessings. It is an income generating initiative that we are working on its growth so that it can be self-sustained in future. It is on rental premises (80,000ksh) per month and therefore really consuming but its future is bright
We are privileged to have a professional in horticultural farming and management Japhet Kirimi (the chairman of the board of directors)and with his skills and expertise we have an established farming project sited on a ¼ acre of land. It has two greenhouses that aid in the growing of quality vegetables as well the left over space where the leafy vegetables are grown. The products assist in provision of quality and nutritious food products for the children as well sale to community clients in order to raise funds in aid of the sustenance of the project.
More about us
Being a children’s institution we have a structure that allows smooth functioning of our operations; we have a home , a school,a rehabilitation programmes and outreach programmes better explained as below; We have two rental premises that serves as home, school and office. Mainly the children here are abandonment cases. We have deployed a special and professional system in aid for selection, recruitment and training of the staff positioned in the home for due diligence required in the handling of infants, toddlers and teenagers. Our professional caterers, housekeeping staff, caregivers all under the matron’s supervision ensure quality and hygiene in food handling and feeding, appropriate care of the babies as well as keen observation for any health issues.
The society in itself has children whose parent or guardian is unable to provide for them either due to sickness or age; termed as destitute.
Baby Blessing stretches its hands to periodically provide food, clothing, educational support materials , health care and counseling services to 89 children at their parent’s/guardian’s habitations. However we are not financially stable and therefore to meet our responsibilities on food and clothing we rely on the surplus items received from community members.
