Unlike the Western World, adoption is not usual in Kenya; children who are sent to orphanages remain there until adulthood, never knowing a real home or a real family. Our goal is to provide these children with a non-institutional, safe, secure and nurturing environment so that they may grow up feeling as though they are a part of a loving family.
Building a community
Global Strides is an international charity striving towards a better global future by investing in our youth. We are a group of like-minded professionals in the Greater Toronto Area, raising funds in order to help the growth and sustainability of an orphanage in Kianyaga, Kenya. And helping them build a better life and a more promising future.
A sense of family
The Peaceful Home for Children orphanage is run as a family structure. Currently there are two houses, each home to eight children – a mixture of boys and girls of different ages, with a mother.
