Food and clothing The Centre relies on the generosity of well wishers. Availability of food is a daily miracle. There is almost always no guarantee that the next meal will be available. The Director, Salome Muturi, is however always confident that God will provide – and He has never let the Centre down!
Residential Needs The Centre is currently hosted in a rented place. Apart from congestion and poor ventilation, the current premises are inappropriate for the children. Salome and the management of By Grace Orphanage have identified the need to establish a permanent building of residence. As the children mature, the Centre plans to equip them with apprentice skills so as to make them self-reliant adults. When the necessary building is acquired, the Centre hopes to establish vocational training, e.g. computer courses, carpentry workshops, poultry farms, horticulture, etc. These ventures will not only benefit the Centre in an immediate sense, they will also impart technical skills to the children. Estimated costs of this need is 5 million Kenya shillings (approximately $75,000 USD).
