Peaceful Children's Home is just that - Peaceful! Built on the slopes of Mt Kenya in the township of Kianyaga, Matron Agnes provides a haven for 17 children who are wards of the State. Kenyan society is tough and children can find themselves single orphans (without one parent) or full orphans (without any parents) through disease, AIDs, violence or imprisonment.
Children attend the local Primary and Secondary Schools as day pupils and return home in the evening.
The children were all keen to have photographs with their Uncle Joe - they have never seen someone as tall before!
Matron and Cheryl have been friends for many years and both enjoy their catch up times every year.
Joe was an instant hit with his new little friend Maxwell at the home.
Sponsorship at Peaceful Children's Home is A$20 per month - all children are currently sponsored.
