Welcome to the homepage of
the Shanzu Orphans Home association!
We are a non-profit registered association. Our purpose is to give needy children in Kenya a future.
The children's home near Mombasa has given a home to about 50 children since its opening in 2005.
Kenyan laws now require that the children are only allowed to stay in a home for a maximum of 3 years. After that they are to be reintegrated into their families and communities.
Since the welfare of the children is our top priority, we will establish another initiative for the future to ensure that the children are cared for outside the home.
Mama Christa Foundation will be founded in 2019 with the aim of providing children, young adults and their families in non-residential settings educational, financial and psycho-social support.
We strive to support young people to live an independent life in and around Mombasa, Kenya.
The basis of our work forms the African Charta on the Rights and Welfare of the Child, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the law of Kenya.
