About Havilla!

Havilla children’s home knows that a child in a safe, nurturing home is a child who thrives.
Recognizing the fundamental human rights of children, the home works to give every child security, opportunity, permanency, and a loving family. Founded in the year, 2005 by the Late Rev. Sophia Nyambura Gitau, the home is located in the tranquil outskirts of Mwiki, Kassarani in Nairobi and was registered as a home under the Kenyan children’s act in 2008.
It caters for purely orpahned children and the plight of the orphans is its basic mission. It ensures that the adopted children at the home are given their rights, health, education, shelter, food, clothing etc. as fully as possible. Much more, it is concerned with providing a free and viable atmosphere where these rights can be excersised and utilised to the full.
Currently it is host to 45 orphans: 17 boys and 28 girls all aged between 1 - 17 years with Mrs. Evalyne Waithera as the director aided by other members of staff.
The day to day running of the home is adminstered and foreseen by Pastor Rose Mwelu.

The children that are catered for at Havilla home lost their parents/families in either of the following ways:

  • Dying of HIV/AIDS or other related sicknesses.
  • Accidental deaths.
It is not not worthy to clarify that some of the children were thrown on to rubbish heaps or bushes immediately after birth and the reality is that they do not know who their real parents are.
