What an exciting day! On the 14th anniversary of the orphanage, all the children celebrate their birthday together, as they do every year! Happy birthday, dear children of QK Children's Home!
We are happy to announce that all education sponsorships have now been fulfilled! This week, some of the children graduated from pre-school. And we wish Jane, James and Alex good luck for their upcoming primary school final exams next week!
We have some winners! Last week our children at Premiere Academy participated in the Fun Day at school, where they did different sports activities and even brought home some medals! What a great day! Congratulations, well done!
Thanks to the great support of the Lions Club Paderborn-Drei Hasen we were able to cover the ongoing costs for the months of February and March! We are grateful and relieved at the same time!
We made it to 2022! The wonderful children of the orphanage are back at school again; we are thrilled to say that thanks to the amazing education sponsors and the donations gathered over the last few months we have been able to cover the school fees and the supplies necessary for the children for the time being.
This year's Christmas was a very special one at the orphanage! Thanks to a donation from our NGO member Sandra the children were not only able to enjoy a wonderful Christmas meal but also received little Christmas presents.
Thanks to the donation of the Rotary Club Paderborn we were able to build a chicken house and buy 50 chickens. The chickens are supposed to provide the children with eggs soon! Many thanks to the Rotary Club Paderborn for their support!
A fresh coat of paint gives our wall that special touch!
In order to protect the children from strangers and wild animals, we started building a wall around the land soon after finishing building the main house. Thanks to the support of the Lions Club Bonn-Beethoven we were able to finish building the wall in June 2021. We thank the Lions Club Bonn-Beethoven for securing the safety of the children!
After being closed for almost a year, the schools are finally reopen in January 2021 and the children are able to return to school! What an exciting day for the children, who enjoy learning and missed their school friends a lot!
Christmas 2020 at the new home: Even though the house is not perfect and a lot of work still lies ahead of us, this Christmas is one filled with gratefulness and hope. Thanks to the donors we were able to provide a Christmas meal for the children as well as school material and uniforms. Thankyou to everyone who made this possible!
Thanks to the donation of the Leo-Club Paderborn a watertank was built on the land, which enables the orphanage to collect rain water below the ground. It is one step towards the sustainable water supply of the orphanage. Thank you, dear Leo-Club!
The day has finally arrived: the children are finally moving into the new house on their own piece of land! It is a very special day for the children. Even though the house is not complete yet, it marks the beginning of a new chapter: the children have a permanent home now.
During the months of October and November a house was built on the land in order to provide a roof over the heads of our children on time for moving day.
In September of 2020 we received a letter by the landlord of the house, in which he demanded that the children should move out in October. Out of necessity, we started building a house on the land outside of Nakuru with very limited funds and combined forces.
August 2020 also marks the beginning of the building process of our sanitary house on the land.
On the 22nd of August 2020 Lindy took the youngest children of QK Children's Home on a little trip to the land, where they were able to romp around and enjoy the day.
When the pandemic reached Kenya in the beginning of 2020, schools were closed all across the country and remained closed over the whole year. This led to the children having to stay on the small rented property, where they still lived, for months at a time. Thanks to a donation the children were able to go on a small daytrip on the 13th of August 2020. What a wonderful day!
In August 2020 the vegetables were harvested.
In May 2020 different vegetables were planted on the land.
The beginning of the Covid-19-pandemic led to a rising demand in hygienic measures. Thanks to a sanitizer donation by a local company these demands were covered as much as possible at the orphanage. Thanks!
This year the children got to paint Easter eggs and had a special Easter meal. The children loved painting their Easter eggs and enjoyed their easter meal.
Thanks to the unremitting efforts of a friend of the orphanage a piece of land was bought outside of Nakuru in August 2019, which would provide enough room to build a sustainable house for the children in the future.
