“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was,
the sort of house I lived in,
or the kind of car I drove...
but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.”
- Forest E. Witcraft
Footprints Orphanage is a childrens home in the Shimba Hills in Kenya, near the Tanzania border.
Founded by Kerry Wanjala (Watson) from Burton-on-Trent, England - it provides not only shelter, food and water for orphaned and vulnerable children, but also the quality education, love, security and hope for the future they truly deserve, in a family environment.
Here at Footprints our children will remain as a part of our family for life.
