Welcome

Thank you for your interest in the work of T.L.C. Children's Trust.

This page contains some very basic details.

Our registered reason for existing is stated as:

"The charity's objects are to relieve the needs of orphans and other underprivileged children and young people in Kenya in particular but not exclusively by the provision of funds for food, clothing, accommodation, education and medical care".

We channel all our funds to the Home of Peace Children's Home near Siaya in Kenya.

We are in contact with Home of Peace every day and Marilyn is on the Management Team and Chair of their Board of Trustees so we are able to verify where every penny is spent.

Since we started supporting this home we have achieved the following:
NOTE This is in addition to providing the children with food, accommodation, clothing, medical care and an education -


* Built 2 toilet blocks with wash rooms. Prior to this the children used a local field. This has had a significant positive impact on their health.

* Built and equipped a nursery room for the young children.

* Erected a security fence around the property to protect them from predators (human and animal).

* Provided beds, bedding, mosquito nets etc. for all the children.

* Provided all the children who are of school going age with school fees, exam fees, uniforms, text books, note books etc.

* Repainted and repaired the dormitories

* Established a first-aid system which has reduced the money spent sending children to the local medical clinic for minor injuries.

* Built and equipped a permanent kitchen in 2014

IN 2015 WE WERE INFORMED THAT THE HOME NEEDED TO BE REGISTERED WITH THE KENYAN GOVERNMENT AND TO MEET THEIR REQUIREMENTS WE HAVE DONE THE FOLLOWING.

* We have established a farm and provided chickens to supplies some of the basic food needed for the Home

* We have built 2 additional washrooms.

* We have installed a water pumping and storage system to provide a reliable water supply for the Home.

* We have built a large dining room / study area and furnished it with tables and chairs so the children have a place to bothe eat and to study.

* We have built 2 additional dormitories attached to which there are a first aid/ sick bay, an office / counselling room and accommodation for 2 house mothers

* We have Installed electricity in the Home.



DEVELOPMENTS SO FAR IN 2016


* We appointed Hellen Akinyi as our Manager

* We are building a new Boys Dormitory.

* We are are building a laundry.

* We are building a Study room for the Children.

* We are putting in additional Toilets and wash rooms.

* We are converting our temporary Dining Room into a permanent structure.

* We have purchased 2 sewing machines and employed ladies to make all our children's play clothes, church clothes, school uniforms and the staff uniforms. Also to repair any damaged clothing. This will save us a lot of money in the long run.

* All our staff are now registered for the Government health Care scheme and the Government Pension scheme.

NOTE All supplies etc. are purchased locally. We do not waste money shipping out things that they can obtain from a local supplier. This saves money and benefits the local community. We do however insist on detailed, official receipts and for items such as beds, uniforms etc. photographs showing these items on site.
