About the Kariobangi Children's Home
Kariobangi is an impoverished area in Kenya, consisting of both slum-type and tenement type of buildings. The Kariobangi Children's Home was started in the year 1997 by Bishop Daniel Ogutu with an objective to care for orphans and vulnerable children affected by HIV AIDS. At that time there were only 6 children, they now care for more children both boys and girls from age of 4 years upwards. While in the home children enjoy a well-balanced diet (3 meals a day), shelter, education, every child has their own bed and bedding and personal items. The home is part of a church based project called Outreach Community Centre.
To develop an orphaned child to a responsible mature adult empowered to address social, economic, physical and spiritual needs to the glory of GOD.
