PROJECT PROFILE
Body of Christ Children’s Home was established in the year 2005 by a former government staff who always had a dream of starting a humanitarian center for the needy, poor, less fortunate and vulnerable children in society. She got a house, which was not in use, rented, furnished and started taking care of the vulnerable children. The number kept growing until she realized that feeding children alone was not enough. She then started an Early Childhood Development School within the center where children could get basic needs such as education, food and shelter.
The project, therefore, has children home 164 children. Those who permanently reside in the home are 50 children while those who attend day activities like learning, daycare and feeding are 125. The Early Childhood Development School school helps to generate income for the project. The school runs from Pre-primary one to grade 1-5. The project also supports 10 teenage students who attend senior school elsewhere.
The project also has a small farm where they plant vegetables, maize, beans, tomatoes, etc. They are also involved in poultry keeping and rearing of dairy cattle. The products of they get from these activities are used to supplement the nutrients of the children.
