God our Father Home for Needy Children in Watamu, Coast Province

God our Father Home for Needy Children is location in Mzhogatho, Watamu, a village along the Coast between Kilifi and Malindi. Some of the children are orphans, others are abandoned or come from families that aere not able to take care of them. The home gets donations from tourists who visit Watamu and find their way to “God our Father’s” home. 

Ninety five children are staying in the home. The youngest is a just a few months old. Most of the children go to schools in the villages. The younger children visit the nursery school in the compound. This means that children from the age of three years are taken to school. The nursery school is also open for children from the village. The center has a small facility for children with a disability.

God our Father has a small plot of farm land with, at the moment, mainly fruit trees and vegetables. They also have goats, cows, chicken and ducks, all to get income in order to sustain the home.  GOF has some farmland in Marereni. Jatropha plants (which seeds are used to make bio fuel) have been planted.

o    Assisting in baby care
o    Assistance in the nursery school to develop new materials, toys etc
o    Help in the day-to-day work (in the kitchen, compound)

Testimonials

Jethro Arts Everything was great and arranged perfectly and professionally. The contact by mail before we travelled to Kenya was clear and easy. The pick up from the airport was without any problems. The introduction day in Kilifi was great as well. Still thanks to Everlyn and the student who has learned us (a couple of words) Swahili. Special thanks to Cocky for her commitment and everything she has done for us. We like to do voluntary work with Kenya Xperience! again.
Jurriaan Wesselink Ik (heb) veel gezien, gedaan en, onbewust, veel geleerd. Het was echt top en ik weet niet hoe ik kan zeggen hoe ik de organisatie kan bedanken, zonder deze  organisatie was het niet zo gelukt! Echt top. Dit nemen ze me nooit meer af.
Elize van Dalsen My experience with Kenya Xperience! could not have been better.
