Once completed, the dormitory will provide shelter for 40 boys aged 5 to 18. Here, the boys can enjoy their living space, sleep safely, have a better study environment and a place to call home.
International Peace Initiatives (IPI) creates spaces where orphans can find who they are and thrive. Our homes provide a place where vulnerable children find love, care, shelter, food, education and a roof over their heads so that they can break the cycle of poverty in their lives and that of their families.
With 63 orphans living at Kithoka Amani Children’s Home (KACH), the home has outgrown the space we currently have, especially in times the schools are closed because of COVID-19. We have been desiring to do this for four years now without success due to lack of funds.
40 lives of the boys aged 5 to 18 years will be improved directly. The boys who will be housed in the dormitory will enjoy the living space, helping them to sleep better, study better with less noise and disturbance. An extra space they deserve to enjoy while playing and helping other boys to get on with their day-to-day activities so they can thrive.
When we bring in workers, builders and their families, as well as – in the long run – the boys’ families the project will impact an estimated 30,000 lives:
Donations totaling Ksh 779624 (or €6,000) will be used for the roof, doors, windows, toilets, plastering, paint and the floor.
Extra donations will be used for a kitchen and dining.
The total budget for the entire boys’ dormitory to accommodate 40 boys was Ksh2,500,000 (or €19,531). With the donations through iMACT direct, IPI could buy bags of cement and sand to finish the walls.
