The Lewa Children’s Home, headed by our Spokesperson, Phyllis Keino, provides a loving environment, nutritious food, clean water, education and support for abandoned, orphaned or abused children in a family setting. The home, relocated from its original site in 2003, is now adjacent to the Kip Keino Primary School and the Baraka farm and now the children are within walking distance of the School. With the new location came the need for bigger quarters for the children. A large, multi-purpose structure, including a dormitory, bathrooms, study and meeting rooms and a small clinic are all included in
the new structure which was completed in 2006. Phyllis Keino has been caring for orphaned, abused and abandoned Kenyan children since 1964. Her philosophy that education is the most important gift you can give a child is an inspiration to so many people in Kenya and around the world. We too believe that education is the most important gift you can give a child.Bread and Water for Africa provides critical funding for the operation of the home and for school fees, scholarship funds and other assistance to the children at the home as well as other needy children in the local community.
