Thank you for your patience as we work to get the commitment form working again!


There are 8 children in my family. I am the 4th born. Last year, I was given the opportunity to attend the Chariots for Hope Academy at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home. When the social worker visited our home, she realized my desperate situation and how dangerous my commute to school was for me. I do not know my father. My mother disappeared to an unknown place years ago. We were left with my elderly grandmother who is fighting high blood pressure. I’m thankful that my sister, Alice, and I are able to live at the children’s home where all of our needs are met. I am in Grade 4. K01-CFH/184

My father abandoned our family and went to an unknown place. I believe he left because I have a brother with cerebral palsy. It is difficult for my mother to work because she has to be close to my brother to provide for his care. Therefore, it is very difficult for her to provide for my basic needs. I also have other siblings. I am thankful for the opportunity to live at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home and attend school regularly there at the Academy. I am in 3rd grade. K01-CFH/193

My parents separated in 2020 due to domestic violence. My siblings and I went with our mother to a friend’s house. We did not have anywhere else to go. During this time my mom got pregnant and was unable to work. Our family friend was unable to continue supporting us. Then my dad called and said he wanted to reconcile. When we went home, we found that he had married another woman and we were chased away. The government has stepped in to help us with housing and some school fees for my oldest sister. However, my family is still unstable. I’m thankful to be at Mahiga with two of my siblings. K08-CFH/153

My mother passed away earlier this year. She was an alcoholic. I was left with my grandmother. Three days after my mother passed away, my maternal aunt also died. My grandmother was left with her baby as well. She has no source of income and is not in good health. I have missed a lot of school because I was caring for my mom when she was sick and then my grandmother could not afford to send me. Life was very difficult for me. I’m thankful to be given the opportunity to live at the Maai Mahiu Children’s Home. I am in Grade 4. K01-CFH/194  

Age: 9 | Gender: Female | Children's Home: Maai Mahiu


Both of my parents passed away in 2019. My mom died in September and then my dad died in November. They were both alcoholics and they had AIDS. There was a family that promised to care for me but instead, I was severely mistreated. It was bad that the neighbors reported the situation to the children’s home for me to be rescued. When I became aware that the home was preparing for my intake, I packed up my few belongings and just walked straight to the home. They welcomed me in even though I am not a good student and struggle with learning. I am in 5th grade. K04-CFH/181

Age: 12 | Gender: Male | Children's Home: Kaptagat


My mom is not married. She has three children. I do not know my father. There have been many men that come to our house at night. My mom spends most of her time drinking illegal beer in the slums. She leaves my siblings and I to wander in the streets looking for food. I have spent my life eating from the hands of kind people who give something to me to eat. People have tried to help our family but my mom spends any money she can earn to fund her habit so no one wants to help us anymore. My older sister has a sponsor and is in secondary school.

Hear From Our Child Sponsors!

Mark Hayner, sponsor since 2009

My experience with child sponsorship through Chariots actually began in Kenya, as I was fortunate enough to visit the Maai Maihu children’s Mark-Hayner-with-Isaac2home in 2009.
On a walk to church Sunday morning, I walked next to a young boy named Isaac, who I was taken with right away.  He had a very quiet confidence about him, and I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him. In just a few days’ time I had grown a deep love for these children and wanted to be able to make an impact in their lives even after I went home. For my family, the answer to that desire was child sponsorship.  What’s more, God made it very clear who I should sponsor.  I checked with the social worker named Rose, and sure enough, Isaac was not being sponsored at the time.  I was thrilled.  Since then, I’ve gotten to correspond with him through letters, and twice now, have gotten to see him in person–to hug him, give him some gifts, and most importantly, spend some precious minutes with him- sharing updates on our family, and hearing about his goals and dreams.  He is no longer the young boy I knew on that walk, but now a young man, with a bright future ahead of him.  His quiet confidence is evident as ever, and it comes from the solid biblical foundation he was given at this Children’s home.  This is a young man, who despite his circumstances, knows who he is in Christ, and that makes all the difference.  He affectionately refers to himself as “our loving son,” a fact which I am very proud of!

Sponsoring a child through Chariots is simply one of the most rewarding things that you can do.  It takes the idea of showing God’s love to a new level, as you are honestly gaining a family member through this.  To love them, pray for them, and watch them grow and develop is one of the most precious things you can experience.   It is a very tangible way to bless someone and show the love that God has given us first.  I would highly, highly recommend getting involved, and sponsoring a child today if the Lord has laid that on your heart.  I can promise you, you will never regret it!

Crystal Moyer, sponsor since 2014

Crystal MoyerAs a younger couple, my husband and I were struggling to have a child of our own.  We started the adoption process to give a child a home but God started giving us girls of our own.  However, our hearts were still tender toward those children without a home or family.   So our family was delighted when our church partnered with Chariots for Hope.  We jumped at the chance to sponsor a child and now a family of Dad, Mom and four daughters … has a BOY, Emmanuel!!!!  We have been blessed as we pray for him and communicate with him through packages.

God had another blessing to bestow! My oldest daughter and I had the miracle of going on a mission’s trip to Kaptagat Children’s Home where our boy lives.  We had built a relationship through pictures and notes, and Emmanuel knew who we were the minute he saw us.  God’s love and prayers connected us and now we were face to face … my cup runneth over!  The time we spent with him was glorious, he is a gift from God.  Words cannot describe the joy that floods my heart every time I pray for or think of our boy, Emmanuel.

It is a blessing for us to give to these children, but I saw firsthand what our family meant to Emmanuel.  As a sponsor, you are not just a name … they want to know you, they love you and they thank God for you!  Praise God we can be a part of these children’s lives!
