Home of Grace Care CentreDonate Now
Speroway supports orphaned and disadvantaged children and youth through the Home of Grace care center in rural western Kenya by providing a safe and loving environment, daily nutritious meals, access to medical care, and an education.
Children at Home of Grace are orphans, referred by the Kenyan children’s department, or abandoned at the doorstep by their relatives.
We are committed to contributing to the well-being of those at Home of Grace and children and youth in the surrounding communities that need it the most.
We have started a Lunch Feeding Program, which began by providing 19 local schoolchildren a nutritious lunch on school days. With your support we hope to expand this program to increase the number of children fed every day and offer the program 12 months of the year, including school vacation times.
Home of Grace has had an opportunity to rent some nearby farmland to grow vegetables. This property will ensure an adequate supply of fresh vegetables for the children at a cost less than buying them at the market. The older children are eager to give back, so they enjoy helping out on the “shamba”. They also learn some valuable farming skills, useful in this largely rural area. Funds are needed to pay for supplies such as seeds and fertilizer, as well as cover the rent on the land.
When children come to Home of Grace, they have often missed out on any formal education, so they need to get caught up to their peers. At the same time the Kenyan school system places a great deal of emphasis on rigorous national standard examinations. To help the children catch up and to prepare them for the national exams, Home of Grace wants to hire a tutor to supervise homework time and offer extra instruction. Education is the key to a hopeful future for the children.
As we enter the holiday season, remember the children and staff at Home of Grace who don’t have as much as we do. Please consider a generous gift to help the orphans and vulnerable children at Home of Grace Care Centre.

$60 WILL SUPPORT THE HOME OF GRACE GROW VEGETABLES PROJECT
$100 WILL PROVIDE A HOMEWORK TUTOR TO IMPROVE CHILDREN’S EDUCATION
We focus on increasing children’s access to quality education at Home of Grace and communities, by providing tuition support, school supplies, and other education fees. By giving the gift of education, you invest in a child’s future. Through education, these children can grow up to be productive, responsible members of their community.
We provide for these needs through three programs:
- Residential care: Orphans and vulnerable children living at the Centre are given shelter, a loving and supportive environment, food, basic medical care and access to an education. Whenever possible, staff work to maintain contact with extended families to ease future re-integration into the community.
- Community Outreach: Families of identified children in the community receive at-home support, including tuition support and other occasional support to supplement food budgets.
- Lunch Feeding Program: Children in need identified by local schools and community leaders are fed lunch, to improve learning.
The majority of children arrive at Home of Grace weak and malnourished. We provide daily nutritious meals so that children can have the nutrients needed to be physically and mentally strong, concentrate in school, and have an opportunity at a better future.
