The Valley of Hope Children’s Foundation is a UK charity supporting Valley of Tumaini Children’s Home, a child focused charity organization based in Nakuru District of Kenya. Our mission is to provide education, health care, nutrition, shelter, clothing, love, hope and protection to children orphaned by HIV/AIDS, destitute, displaced and abandoned children. The Home cares for orphans from a rented house and we are fundraising to build them their own home to keep them safe. We aim to take a team of volunteers to construct the new home when we reach our target of £68,000. If you’re interested in helping with the build, volunteering in the UK or Kenya, or donating towards the target, please get in touch.
