The East Africa Mission Orphanage, located near Nakuru in Kenya, was started by an Australian couple, Ralph and May Spinks, and was the first beneficiary of the Community Trust. The orphanage currently provides full care for over 200 children including young teenage mothers. The goal of the orphanage is to treat the resident children as if they were their own.
The orphanage provides education, security, and a well-balanced and nourishing diet to ensure that each child has every opportunity that any child would receive. They have even set up a 13 acre farm which grows wheat, maize corn, beans, potatoes and vegetables which helps with the sustainability of the orphanage as well as providing the children with food and knowledge of farming.
Most Peregrine trips in the region visit the orphanage. After the completion of a purpose-built new nursery to house both the orphanage’s babies and their care givers the Trust is now raising funds for a library for the kids. We aim to raise money through online donations to help complete the project.
The passion and determination of Ralph and May is obvious in their response when they were asked “How do you have so many kids and you keep it running smoothly?” someone asked Ralph. “The key is to keep them busy… we’ve got the best jobs in the world!” says Ralph.
