Minto Children’s Home (formerly SAVEDA children Home) was started in 2005 by Mrs. Susan Kerubo Ochwangi.
Mrs. Ochwangi, a breast cancer survivor, initially had two boys and four girls but shifted to a girls-only home following a government directive which required one to stick to one gender if one does not have sufficient finances and facilities to cater for both.
There is a dire need for the home to have their own facility as they have been shifting residence due to renting costs. They are currently putting up at a 3-bedroomed house which is barely enough to cater for the growing number of children which currently stands at 26 girls.
The founder lives on site with the children and is supported by three staff members who have been volunteering. She has a son and four grandchildren.
