Naomi means “beautiful, pleasant, and delightful”. Naomi’s Village Orphanage will be built on a 5-acre piece of land located in Maai Mahui, Kenya. Maai Mahui is a 20-minute drive from Kijabe down into the valley. It is located along a major trade route known as the AIDS highway that links Nairobi to Kampala. As a principal truck stop on that road, the village has high rates of prostitution and AIDS. It is estimated that in Kenya 1.1 million children are orphans with the number expected to continue to rise. Naomi's Village is expected to house as many as 110 children, both male and female. We have had actual plans drawn up by a Kenyan architect who designed another children's home in the area. The orphanage will have running water and electricity and will have a security fence around the periphery, since this is a high crime area. Children who are school age will attend the Maai Mahui Primary School, which is within walking distance. The plans for our orphanage also call for a large common room for meetings, services, and presentations. Boys will be housed in an area entirely separate from the girls' wing. In addition, the plans include living space for visiting teams as they come to serve and minister to the children. There will also be offices and living space for those who permanently administrate the orphanage. Medical and surgical care can easily be provided by nearby AIC/Kijabe Hospital and AIC/CURE Hospital. It is our intent that this will be a full time orphanage providing food, clothing, shelter, and education for both children orphaned by the death of parents and abandoned at birth (both common scenarios). There is actually a nursery in the plans to accommodate infants. Elisha and Esther Gachoka own the land and share our vision for the orphanage.

We still need to raise approximately $50,000.

The silence that surrounds children affected by HIV/AIDS and the inaction that results is morally reprehensible and unacceptable. It the situation is not addressed, and not addressed now with increased urgency, millions of children will continue to die, and tens of millions more will be further marginalized, stigmatized, malnourished, uneducated, and psychologically damaged. -Carol Bellamy, Executive Director of UNICEF
