These children have suffered accidents, handicaps from or during birth, snakebites, and polio among other disabilities.

This home was established to cater for the challenged children within the local community. Every child is entitled to better care and upbringing. In most Kenyan societies, the physically challenged children get stigmatization from other members of the community making them feel less than human. Most people speak Kikamba as a native language. Farming is widely practiced for a living e.g. livestock poultry, small-scale farming of maize, beans, coffee, sweet potatoes, bananas, and vegetables. Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, may be seen from the home.
