Our Story

September 2007: Familia Moja Children’s Home was founded in September 2007 by Wambui Muiru with the help of Jess White and James Woodward. Since then Jess White has remained actively involved as a Co-founder and Development Partner, whilst Wambui remains the heart and soul of Familia Moja.

Familia Moja means “One Family” in Kiswahili (the national language of Kenya). We have made all the necessary efforts to bring up the children as members of one family despite coming from different backgrounds. This makes our home stand out from the others because we care deeply not only for feeding, sheltering, clothing and educating them but we also care about the family values we are instilling in them at this early stage of their development. Familia Moja strongly believes that working together as a family we can make a difference to the future of the children in our care.
