Nyalenda Shelter of Hope was a brain child idea of two young teenagers, Wilistone Juma and Bazil Baraza. The two were initially street boys in Kisumu city Kenya for a period of 11 years. Having been lucky to quit street life through some well-wishers help, they saw it wise to come up with a plan to help rescue the young children faced by myriads of community problems especially the street children and orphans.
As Nyalenda Shelter of Hope, we believe in team work. We welcome any genuine help from every individual or any christian like-minded organization/group provided it can help create a positive impact in the life of our vulnerable community members. God loves to see Christians working together submitting to His will.
