Chariots for Hope, in partnership with Chelten, a church of hope, would like to introduce you to these children in need of a sponsor


I live with my grandmother.  My parents abandoned me and are untraceable. My grandmother is very sick with high blood pressure and she is diabetic.  She is in and out of the hospital often.  I miss school a lot and depend on well-wishers to provide for me. My cousin, Raphael, is in the same situation.  Our grandmother reached out to the sub-county children’s department for help because she knew she could not care for us. We were so thankful for the opportunity to live at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home where we are safe and all of our needs are met.  I am in 3rd grade (Class 3). K01-CFH/158

I do not know my father.  My mom is mentally sick.  She was taken to the police station after we were found in the very cold forest by a Good Samaritan. She said we were in the forest praying and fasting.  She has never been concerned with her children.  We were dependent upon others to feed us and we were always moving from one place to another.  I am so happy to be settled in one place at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home.  I am happy my brother, John, lives there with me too.  I am in 3rd grade (Class 3). K01-CFH/162

My mom died on January 27, 2017 and the next year my dad died on June 2, 2018.  They passed away from AIDS.  My dad was also paralyzed.  Life was so hard.  I was left with my grandmother.  She is elderly, sick and not in a position to care for me. I was in and out of school because we could not afford for me to attend. Often I stayed home to help with the chores and care for my grandmother. This makes it hard to focus on my education.  I am thankful to have the opportunity to live at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home and attend school.  I am in 7th grade (Class 7). K01-CFH/163  

Age: 13 | Gender: Male | Children's Home: Maai Mahiu


Before coming to live at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home I was living in a safe house in Naivasha.  My aunt had brought me from Kisumu, where I was born. She then abandoned me and I had no where to go. I was living on the streets. I came to live at Maai Mahiu in 2015. I was not used to living in a nurturing environment and struggled to trust the people there. I ran away and went to find my parents in Kisumu.  I found them but they are living in horrific conditions and I could not stay with them. Thankfully I was able to return to the Children’s Home. I am in 11th grade (Form 3). K01-CFH/119

My mother died while giving birth. Within 18 months my father committed suicide. I was left alone with my siblings. My older brother who is in 8th grade was the one responsible for us. We depended on well-wishers to give us food and it was difficult for us to get to school. An NGO who was sponsoring the school we were supposed to be attending noticed our desperate situation. They advocated for us and we were rescued to Maai Mahiu Children’s Home. I’m happy to be living here with my brother John Maru. I am in 4th grade (Class 4). K01-CFH/168
