About the Brydges Centre

The Brydges Centre, located near Nairobi, Kenya, is a children’s home that cares for the physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of orphaned, abandoned and abused children in Kenya. Our objective is to help these kids become productive Kenyan citizens with a strong, Christian faith to guide them through life - and God is helping to make that happen!

The Brydges Centre is called a children’s home and not an orphanage because the children at the B.C. are not orphans. From the moment they enter the gates, they are members of the Brydges Centre family. The Centre is home for 132 children, about 75 live in the dormitory. Older students are in boarding school, university, or life skills training.

Our mission is to provide destitute, orphaned and poor children with shelter, education, and training to become self-reliant and skilled in the future. All children need to belong to someone who will give them faith, love and affection. They need to have a family that they can rely on, when times get rough. They all have hopes and dreams that they wish will come true, and here at Brydges we facilitate the development and nurturing of these dreams for each and every child.

"My prayer is that Brydges Centre continues to give all of our children a safe home, full of love and care. We also wish to give them social and emotional stability to enhance their growth and development, and give them all the support that they need through life.

Children in difficult situations should not be denied the opportunity for quality education. All of our children are in school - from nursery school to University - and I hope we will raise the children to be responsible and make a difference in the community.

The well-wishers of Brydges Centre thank you in advance, for any kind of donations, prayers or support to sustain the programs undertaken by our organization."

He supports the fatherless and the widow,
But He thwarts the way of the wicked."
