A Place for Every Child: Dagoretti and the Abandoned Babies and Children program
The Dagoretti Children's Center was built in the 1960's to care for orphaned children. Later, it became a home to children suffering from polio, congenital deformities and physical disabilities. In addition to rehabilitation therapy, Dagoretti offers children the chance for an education and the hope for a brighter future.
In the 1990's, as the HIV/AIDS epidemic began to take hold, sick and impoverished parents began bringing their infants to Dagoretti. They had no where else to turn, and it was then that the Abandoned Babies and Children program was born.
Dagoretti and the ABC stand side by side on one shared compound in Kenya. Children over the age of four make the transition from the ABC to life at Dagoretti.
