A message from Dreams:
"We would first and foremost love to thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for the support and love that you have exhibited towards the Dream Family. You are a gift to us from God. We are truly grateful for standing with us. In the last few years a lot of things have changed within the home. With donations, physical help and environmental knowledge we were able to improve our daily life and our living conditions. But there are still many things to do!
This year, after having a meeting with the Dream Children's Home Board members, we came up with a list of short term and long term projects which we would love to undertake, that will really help in running this Home even more efficiently. Kindly feel free to take a look at them. You are welcome to donate towards any of these projects through betterplace. Your contribution, whether great or small is totally significant and highly appreciated. If you have some new ideas or knowledge to change and improve our home just contact us!"
- Yours Sincerely, Rachel -

TRANSPORT AVAILABLE - THANK YOU ALL! (Project in 2016)
Since a really generous German couple helped us in the beginning of 2014 with some fundraising we are in progress of building two new class-rooms for the upcoming school year.
THE SCOOL IS GROWING! WE ARE BUILDING NEW CLASSROOM FOR LEKURUKI SCHOOL AGAIN (Project in 2014)
RENEWING THE SANITARY SYSTEM (Project in 2014)
NEW CLASSROOM FOR LEKURUKI SCHOOL (Project in 2013)
The home shelters a lot of small children who were forced to walk very long distances to their nearest public school. These had medical implications as children get infections during rainy season as well as high risk of getting knocked down by speeding vehicles on the road. We are therefore very happy to announce that our school which opened in 2010 is growing! We would like to thank every single supporter!
NEW PATHWAY TO THE ORPHANAGE (Project in 2012)
Due to the help of so many lovely people donating on betterplace the home was able to repair the dirt road up to the Home. The children and all the visitors are happy about the first rainy season without struggling coming up and down the hill.
FENCING AROUND THE HOME FOR MORE SECURITY (Project in 2012)
With the help of so many nice people donating on betterplace Rachel and Steven were finally able to finish fencing the home. As the Home was not surrounded by a fence, there was no security around the home. Now the children and everybody else is able to feel save at Home - especially at night times.
FOR A MORE SUSTAINABLE HOME - THE BIOGAS SYSTEM IS WORKING (Project in 2011/12)
Due to the help of a British charity Dig Deep (1121493) and the outstanding work of Jennie Nicholls and Rebecca Fawssett in 2011 we were able to build a biogas-system which provides our home from now on with biogas. You can easily have a look into the report of this project here.
ACCOMMODATION IN STABLE DORMITORIES (Project in 2011)
The Bank of Kenya donated two new dormitories to our children. Thank you very much for your help!
