Welcome to Reach International Children's Center

There are estimated to be over 250,000 - 300,000 street children in Kenya. The Reach International Children's Home has been established to rescue, rehabilitate, and restore the street boys in Bungoma, Kenya.

Over the last several years, we have sent seven teams of church members and have invested over $300k to purchase, update, and prepare the property and treatment program. The facility has been transformed into a fully functional rehabilitation center for street boys.

The vision for this endeavor began in 2012. In 2018, the home was finally opened and the first round of boys were brought in. As of today, several more boys have been brought in, a few at a time, slowly by slowly. The plan is for each boy to be in the home for 1-2 years before they enter foster/homes and/or private boarding schools.

Orphanage, or SOmething Else?
2014

The Reach International Children's Center was never designed to be a simple orphanage, but rather something far more impacting, designed to change the lives of the residents so that they could return to society. The question was... did that model already exist?
