About Seeds in His Garden
Seeds in His Garden is a children’s home located in Nairobi, Kenya. We provide care for abused, neglected, needy, abandoned and orphaned children. At any given time, 20-30 children ranging from newborn to teenager call Seeds in His Garden home. Founded in 1998, Seeds in His Garden (SIHG) has pursued the highest standards obtainable in Kenya for the safety and welfare of children. Preparing our children to be Africa’s future leaders requires far more than just providing food and a bed. At SIHG we seek to provide our children with the physical, emotional, academic and spiritual tools needed to reach their full potential.
Seeds In His Garden is registered under the Kenyan Ministry of Gender, Cultural and Social Services (cap. 141 and Cap. 164) and the Kenyan Ministry of Lands and Settlement (175 as P.S. No 957).
"Children are the key to making a difference in the world."
"Without our commitment to develop them in all the critical elements of a human being, there is little chance that they will have the tools to assist themselves or others.”
“We all have the ability to cause transformation in our lives as well as those around us.”
The children who come to Seeds In His Garden arrive with severe neglect and trauma in their lives. Experiences vary, from girls raped as young as age 9, to babies abandoned and left for dead. At times SIHG has had children who have had such severe abuse the child fears a touch of any kind. Others who enter the home cannot be left alone for fear that the caregivers will disappear. Some children having never been to school, struggle gaining the confidence to believe that they can catch up to their age-mates. Some do not believe in anything or anyone and are unable to find a framework within their life that will provide hope and meaning.
We provide them with a safe and caring environment where they can be children again. A place where they can regain their health and strength, learn their life skills, and get the best education in order to develop themselves as great and independent people.
