Home
of Glory Alone orphanage east Africa was founded in 2012 as a community-based
organization and registered with the Ministry of East Afric Community, Labor
and Social protection under the department of social development it was
established to ensure that it Implements and sustains programs that improve
access to better health, education, and lifesaving services now and for future
generations which envisions a nation in which child attains the right to

Home
of Glory Alone fosters a dignified and protected life for children who have
fallen victim to the scourge of destitution, solitude and are at the risk of
HIV/AIDS. We aim to bring opportunity and hope to some of the most abused and
vulnerable children in Bandani and Kisumu County at large. Home of glory
alone  Orphanage is fully registered and incorporated by the 
National
Ngo board under 48599 As its registration number. With the population of 
Kenya estimated at 50 million persons and population growth rate of 3.2 percent
per annum and more than half below 18 years, the country is immensely affected
by overdependence, which stifles development (KBS, 2019). As a result, the
wellbeing of such a population is affected through problems of poverty, low
resource base that puts significant pressure on the delivery of basic social
services, particularly to children; demand for food, healthcare and education
services is growing while access to education and healthcare services at the
community level remains limited more so in the slum areas where this project
seeks to be initiated. Primary school retention remains a challenge for the
Government due to high dropout rates. 

Consequently,
the transition rate from primary to post-primary and tertiary levels has been
low and very few children are now likely to complete primary and continue to
higher levels of education. The Orphans and Vulnerable Children Situation
Analysis Report, 2009 estimated that nearly half (48%) of all Kenya orphans are
a result of HIV/AIDS. Up to 43% of all children (7.3 million) live in a
moderately vulnerable situation, while 8 % (1.3 million) live in a critically
vulnerable situation. Approximately 14 percent of children in Kenya below 18
years of age are orphans, among those, 20 percent of children 6–17 years are
orphans. Even if the fresh HIV infections ceased today, the population already
infected constitutes a massive potential for swelling the number of orphans in
the country. Kenya communities have traditionally absorbed orphans within the
extended family system. One in four households in Kenya foster at least one
orphan by providing for health, shelter, nutrition, education and other needs.
However, many of these caregivers are overburdened and often lack the
socio-economic capacity to provide adequate care and support for these
children. Home of glory Alone is seeking to stand in the gap by providing
information, psychosocial support, education, accommodation and medical care.
