Our mission and vision are derived from the Centre’s motto found in James 1: 27: Religion that God our father accepts as pure and faultless is this; to look after orphans and widows in their distress’. Specifically, we aim at:
- supporting all the orphaned children at By Grace Disabled and Orphans Centre by meeting their physical and spiritual needs.
- sensitizing others to be partakers of this noble task by providing them with an opportunity to bless the orphans as God enables them.
The Purpose of the Centre
Against this background, the Centre, under the directorship of Salome Muturi, has seen the need to reach out to more disadvantaged, disabled children and rehabilitate them so as to give them a sense of hope and support for their future.
Towards this end, the Centre takes care of physically, socially, economically, emotionally and spiritually challenged orphans; mainly those affected by HIV/AIDS. The Centre is dedicated to providing free education, accommodation, food, clothing, good health, individual skills enhancement, and spiritual support to the children. The Centre also counsels these traumatized children, most of whom have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS.
The management hopes to equip the children to be responsible citizens once they leave the center. This will be done through vocational training, e.g. carpentry, masonry, secretarial and computer skills, hairdressing, livestock farming, poultry, etc. This dream will only be realized when the center acquires its own land. At the moment, the children are accommodated in a rented flat, which also doubles up as classrooms and dormitories for the 300 children, 130 of whom are full time boarders.
Our aim also is to transform these children into responsible adults who can provide for themselves. This can only be realized if certain skills and expertise are instilled in these children.
The Centre also plans to initiate projects that can generate income. This will go a long way in making the Centre self-sustaining.
