Here the children are ages newborn to 18. The children here who lost parents due to AIDS, death in childbirth or just poverty and illness, will receive a loving home, education and medical treatment. We have about 155 children in residence, a K-12 school and a hospital on the grounds. We purchased land in March of 2009 and have opened a second orphanage that operates as a training farm for boys age 12-18. Currently there are 15 boys in the program.  We are currently building a home for handicap children that we hope to open in January 2017. Director - Dr. Isabel Johanning-Mora
