In Kitale, Aiden Whisper helps provide housing and education while promoting family-centered learning and love through our Milele Home.

Aiden Whisper partners with Milele Home located in Kitale, Kenya

Students in Kitale, Kenya are released from their boarding school three times a year totaling 4 months. Since many of the children do not have a home to go to during those break times, or their home is unsafe we provide housing for 15 former street boys—ranging from ages 10-16. We have partnered with a local Kenyan pastor and his family to love and care for these boys like as their own. In our Milele Home, the boys are given food, shelter, and tutoring during non-school months, as well as the necessary love, care, and acceptance that all children need.

STREET CHILDREN

Nearly 500,000 children are living on the streets in Kenya today.

Helping street children receive an education in Kitale, Kenya

Close to 500 of those are living in a small agricultural town in northwestern Kenya called Kitale. Each of those 100 million children has both a story and a desperate need. Children are living on the streets for a variety of different reasons. These include:

  • A child becomes orphaned.
  • A child is abandoned, dropped off, or forced to live on the streets.
  • There is a lack of food, clothing, or education provided by their parents at home.
  • Tribal differences within their families and communities often create isolated or ostracized children.
  • A child flees from their household due to abuse from their parents or guardians.
OUR FUTURE

The future is bright in Kitale, Kenya! Here's what we're planning.

Aiden Whisper hopes to open a trade school for street kids in Kenya
TRADE SCHOOL
The longer that children have lived on the streets, the more their age will restrict them from continuing their formal education. Our dream is to open a training school for these children, teaching mechanics, carpentry, sewing, jewelry, etc. Equipping these kids with a trade will eventually help them create a forever home for their own future families.

MULTIPLE HOMES
Today, our Milele Home is filled to full capacity with 15 kids. We won’t stop here! There are still too many street children in Kenya! We plan to partner with other local pastors in order to open more homes and continue to eradicate the number of children living in the streets.
Aiden Whisper plans to open a camp for street children in Kenya
CAMP
Our dream is to create camp for street children, offering sports, dance lessons, and various skill trainings led in part by local Kenyan professionals (painting lessons, woodworking, leather making, photography, bike repair, and more). The camp would encourage students in their potential, help them build professional relationships in a trade they enjoy, and provide a fun escape to the reality of living on the streets.

Will you help us make these dreams a reality? Give today.
