Welcome, Karibu

Hope House Babies Home is a home for abandoned babies based in Nairobi, Kenya. It was started in April 2002 by Australian Christian missionaries, Pastors Glen and Rob Bruce.

The Home opened with two babies and has since grown to care for up to 24 babies at any one time. We accept babies aged between one day to six months. They are brought in mostly from hospitals and clinics and we care for them until they are either adopted or reach the age of three years. Once they reach the age of three, if they are not adopted they are transferred to a carefully vetted home that cares for older children. Since the home was started, over 400 babies have been adopted by mostly Kenyan families.

Hope House receives no funding from the Kenyan government and relies completely on the generosity of people from Kenya and overseas to provide the necessary funds and gifts needed to care for the babies and maintain the home.

Hope House is a registered UK charity (SC040460). It is registered in Kenya as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) and is also licensed by the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Development.

Our Governance & Management

The founders of the Hope House now only hold Founding Director position, as they have returned to Australia and are not involved in the running of the Home. The current Managing Director, Jim Kimotho, is a Kenyan who has worked with the Mission for nearly 20 years. The Board is made up of eight members and provides governance oversight. It meets every at least once a quarter or more frequently depending on need.

The Home is run by a team of qualified local staff, volunteers and a Missionary. The staff consist of the Marketing manager (Australian), Home manager, Social worker, Accountant, Registered nurses and support staff (all Kenyans).
