Hope House Babies Home is based in Nairobi, Kenya. It was started in April 2002, by Australian Christian missionaries, Pastors Glen and Robert Bruce of African Growth Ministries.
The home opened with two babies and has since grown to care for up to 24 babies at any one time. We accept babies aged between one day to six months. They are brought in mostly from hospitals and clinics where we care for them until they are either adopted or reach the age of three years. If a baby reaches the age of three and is not adopted, we transition them to a carefully vetted home that cares for older children.
Since the home was started, over 450 babies have been adopted, mostly by Kenyan families. Each adopted child has adapted well to their new family.
The home receives no funding from the Government and relies completely on the generosity of people from Kenya and overseas to provide the necessary funds and gifts needed to care for the babies and maintain the home.
Hope House Babies Home is registered as a Non Governmental Organisation and is also licensed by the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Development.
