Our Mission and Vision

Our mission is to serve the needs of vulnerable Kenyan girls by providing a safe, faith-based, loving home that supports excellence in education and empowerment for their futures. Our vision is to promote the contribution of educated Kenyan girls for the good of Kenya and the world.

Hekima Place is a home for orphaned and vulnerable girls in Kenya. Founded in 2005, Hekima Place is now home to girls who range in age from infants and toddlers to university students. Many of our girls have been directly impacted by the HIV/AIDS epidemic, which remains devastating for many communities in Sub-Saharan Africa. Whatever their background, all our girls have come to Hekima Place in urgent need of rescue and care. Our excellent reputation in our local community has led to rapid growth over the last decade, from ten girls in a rented facility, to over 85 girls today. Because of the generosity of our supporters, our girls are each given the gift of an education and investment in their future. We strive to nurture and inspire the girls of Hekima Place to grow into responsible, caring women who will make positive contributions to their families, communities, and Kenyan society as a whole.
