Lewa Children’s Home

Local Program Director: Phyllis Keino, RN, Founder/Executive Director

Eldoret, Kenya

The Lewa Children’s Home was founded by Bread and Water for Africa® international spokesperson Phyllis Keino who more than three decades ago began taking in orphaned and abandoned children in western central Kenya. Phyllis could not turn any child who showed up at her doorstep away, and with support from Bread and Water for Africa® today she has become the “mother” of hundreds of children who have matured into successful adults.

PROGRAM BENEFICIARIES/HIGHLIGHTS

Today, Lewa continues on its mission of providing a loving home, food, healthcare and an education to the children who live there. In addition to the roughly 100 boys and girls who call Lewa home, aging in range from a few months to 18 years, Lewa offers outreach services to other impoverished children in the area paying their school fees and providing supplemental feeding assistance.

CURRENT NEEDS

The current need is to improve its income-generating operation, the adjacent Baraka Farm, as well as expanding its guesthouse facilities.
