"Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress." James 1:27a
Bishop Edwin & wife, Winrose
Bishop Edwin Wanyama & his wife, Winrose We work in partnership with Bishop Edwin Wanyama through Mission Link Ministries of Kenya as a sponsor of Rehema Children's Home and Academy. The orphanage is located near the town of Bungoma in western Kenya. It was founded in 1997 by the members of Bukholi Baptist Church and moved to the present 6 acre site in 2003.

The orphanage is a home for children that have no parents or one of their parents is deceased and they are classified as destitute because the remaining parent cannot afford to support them. This situation is the result of the AIDS pandemic and other diseases which take the lives of the parents, leaving behind many children with no hope for their future. There is a tremendous need for orphanages to care for these innocent children, since many of them will end up living on the streets and starving to death without our help.

Presently, we have 151 orphans/vulnerable children who receive physical, academic and spiritual support. The orphanage consists of Rehema Children's Home and Nzoia Rehema Academy where the children are taught by a staff of Christian teachers. Both are officially registered by the government of Kenya.

Rehema Orphanage Vision
Our vision is to empower the orphans and vulnerable children in order to transform them to be responsible members of society.

Rehema Orphanage Mission
We are committed to provide a loving home, support and a Christian-based education for all disadvantaged children, victims of extreme poverty, HIV/AIDS, violence, exploitation and those with disabilities.
