Hope House receives no financial support from the Kenyan Govt. and relies completely on the generosity of people from Kenya and overseas.
At present we receive regular monthly support from several companies and charities as well as smaller amounts from individuals. These cover over a third of our monthly costs, the remainder comes from our "adopt-a-cot" fundraiser, individuals and others who do specific fundraising events for us.


Ideally, we would like to have more regular monthly finances coming in. We do not know where the balance of the funds needed each month will come from. It is a faith mission and we put our trust in God.
We are blessed to receive many donations of toys, clothes, baby items and foodstuffs from people here in Kenya.
