Recently, we have purchased new land and are planning to build The Christine Compound in honor and memory of Christine Cote. Christine was a co-founder with her husband (Darren). Christine was the heart and soul of AOO as she was the key worker of this ministry for the first 13 years before passing on to heaven days after her 49th birthday. The Christine Compound stops the moving from place to place and renting to a permanent home for Rafiki Baby & Toddler Cottage and room for farming. The new building will allow for twice the capacity- giving us the opportunity to care for so many more children! The new facility will also be more conveniently located near our support and our other campus, the Ushindi II home.
Childcare related expenses that our sponsorship program covers include the funding for our children's meals, personal supplies & hygiene, mosquito nets, replacement of bedding, medical care and treatment, Christian caregivers (Ushindi & Rafiki), Under 10 Village's rent and Rafiki's lease & utilities.
We have had 4 children who were a part of our program who were adopted by Kenyan parents.
