Children of Strength (Watoto Wenye Nguvu in Swahili) was created as a means to help children in the Kilimambogo area of Kenya, about 60 miles northeast of Nairobi, overcome the devastating affects on their lives from the HIV/AIDS epidemic and widespread poverty. The program supports over 400 orphans and other vulnerable children through individual sponsorships that provide food, clothing, education, and medical care.
Children of Strength runs a safe house for at risk orphans in Kusatawi Village. These orphans are at risk of being abused or sold into marriage, slavery or prostitution. The safe house sits on 6 acres of land including a farm which grows various crops producing food for the safe house and some food for the feeding program Watoto Wenye Nguvu runs in local schools of the Kilimambogo district.
