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.

We now have 5 of our children/adults in University:

Besides Kim, Walter and Emily, we now have Rose and Mercy in Kabarak University, thanks to supporters of A Better World (ABW) Canada. They are all studying to be High School Teachers except for Kim who is studying Telecommunications.

Solar Energy:

Thanks to Greg and Sharon Martin from Australia, we are currently installing two sets of Solar Electricity Panels. One set to power all of the EAMO campus. The other set to power our water borehole which is sitting at a depth of 235 metres. With this new system we should be able to pump thousands of litres of water a day all for free. So with both projects in operation, we are going to save a lot of precious donated money each month. (Pictures to come)

Dining Room Extension:

Thanks again to A Better World (ABW) Canada for financing the re-construction of our dining room. For those of you who have been here and seen the original, well its now the same length but twice as wide. Its built out of completely new materials except for the floor and windows. The kids just love having all this room now.

How can you 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!”
