Imagine growing up without
family, food, home or education

The extreme poverty in Kenya leaves a trail of homeless children. Many of these children either die a premature death through malnutrition or walk the streets in search of food. Some of the most desperate children turn to glue sniffing to suppress the hunger pains, or to prostitution as a means of survival.

Please help us change this situation by creating a bright future for the homeless children of Kenya.

EAMO (East African Mission Orphanage) was established in 1997 by Australian couple, Ralph and May Spinks who today provide a loving home for hundreds of orphaned children including babies and teenage mothers. EAMO is registered as a charitable institution with the Kenyan Government for the purpose of caring for children in desperate need and is taking up the challenge of finding and caring for orphaned children before they reach the streets of Kenya.

Dining Room Extension.

Work is underway on the foundations for the extension of our Dining Room. Thanks to “A Better World” Canada and its sponsors, our most busiest building, the dining room is now double width. For those of you that “loved” our dining standing in the middle of the EAMO campus, will love the double size of it now. Its the same length but twice as wide and everything is new except the floor. Its really the only part we didn’t change. The new roof with its extra long poles and “makuti” roof (folded palm leaves) is an absolute masterpiece to look at.

How can I help EAMO?

Ralph & May Spinks are often asked, “how can I help EAMO?” Their answer is always the same, “there are 4 ways to help:

  1. Sponsor a Child
  2. Make a donation
  3. Fund a project
  4. Buy a Gift Card

However, sponsoring a child is the greatest priority because there are still many children at EAMO who do not have sponsors and the Sponsorship Program does not yet cover the full monthly budget for the children!”
