“Jambo” means hello in Swahili, the native language of Kenya. Hope CC Canada is a community of Canadians who love and support the children, staff and leadership of Hope Community Center in Kenya, Africa. Many of us have had the opportunity to visit the community and our hearts have been changed forever. In response, we want to use this site to share the vision and accomplishments of Hope CC along with information that increase awareness and connect us.
Hope Community Center (Hope CC) is a Christian, non-profit charity whose aim is to give hope and build a future for orphaned Kenyan children. Often these children have lived in the streets after losing parents to AIDS or have been abandoned by their families due to poverty. The orphanage is located 172 Kilometers north east of Nairobi in a mountain community named Kinangop. The closest city is Naivasha, about 30 km away. Hope CC seeks to create a caring and compassionate environment, where children are supported spiritually, physically, and emotionally. The community is alive with a working farm, school, church, kitchen, dorms, library, nursery, recreation facilities and more. Currently, the community includes more than 350 children ranging from infant to college age. You can follow news about the children and Hope CC by Subscribing to our E-Newsletter.
