THE FUTURE OUR SMILE
Baby Blessing Children’s Home is a charitable Organization REGISTERED under the Ministry of Gender, Social and Children Services. It is a rescue center , a place of hope and home for the homeless.
Currently it houses a total of 64 children who are either or both; orphans, abandoned , neglected, abused , HIV/AIDS positive or those whose only traceable parent or guardian has both a terminal illness and is bedridden.
Baby Blessing Children’s Home aims at providing shelter, food, clothes, education and health care for the children; above all restoring the dignity of the Kenyan child and creating a hopeful future through counseling, love, care and mentorship.
The institution was initiated in 2011 by Irene Gakii Mwirigi in the plight to give orphaned and vulnerable children a second chance in life and rejuvenate their potential as well as save them from the cruelty they were put through
She housed 6 neglected and abandoned children in her own house and later found them a rental three bedroomed house in Umoja, Tena Estate, Embakasi Constituency in Nairobi.

BOARD OF MANAGEMENT
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.
