Early Childhood Development Centres – Noah’s Ark and St Irene’s

The first Noah’s Ark day care centre for HIV orphans was started in 2001 by Irene’s daughter Lorna. It was located in a road-side kiosk at Mumias in western Kenya and catered for about 16 disadvantaged children.

Kenya does not have a welfare system such as we enjoy in the UK. Education and medical care have to be paid for, and in a relatively poor country covering a large area, they are not necessarily available.

Sustainable Agriculture

We grow our own crops on our land and in greenhouses at Noah’s Ark and St Irene’s and use the surplus to sell at market.

All profits get ploughed back into the charity. Relatives and guardians of the orphans tend the crops on a regular basis.
