ByGrace Trust is a registered 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Charitable Organization, in the US and a registered trust Kenya, which arose when the founders, Stephen and Rosemary Mbogo, started addressing the dire needs of orphaned, destitute and at-risk children in the Nairobi Kenya) slums in 2004.
Stephen and Rosemary Mbogo’s hearts broke for the children on the streets, the orphaned and the many extremely impoverished. They chose not to walk away from such desperate needs. One by one, Stephen and Rosemary began welcoming children into their home.
At ByGrace Children’s Home, we prefer to avoid using the term orphanage when referring to the children’s living situation. For this reason, ByGrace Children’s Home instead “adopts” these children into their special family and employs caregivers that step into the role of parental figures for the children. The Home children enjoy a small number of dedicated caregivers that provide each child with the opportunity to be part of a family, instead of an institution. Stephen, Rosemary and the Home staff view each child as their own and strive to create a holistic environment in which the children are safe, secure and loved, and can learn, thrive and grow to their full potential.
In addition to offering residential care to those who desparately need it, ByGrace offers community based care in various Kenyan geographical locations in partnership with local churches.
Currently, ByGrace Trust's sponsored children have the priviledge of attending ByGrace Schools (Kindergaten, Primary and High School) Ngong; Tumaini School which the Mbogos founded at the Mathare North Living Word Church in 2003; Liberty Hope Academy in Eldoret; Shemot Elites Academy in Kericho; Living Kids Educational Center in Githurai and Westwood Academy in Mathare North, all started by Mbogos Mathare North ministry associates, assistants and/or mentees.
