St. Joseph’s Orphanage, "Amakura Kenya Orphanage"

SLAM worked in partnership with Little Sisters’ Angel Fund to develop a new home for St. Joseph’s Orphanage in Amukura, Kenya. The Little Sisters of St. Francis identified a need to care for orphaned children abandoned by families who could not care for them. A conceptual design and fundraising package have been provided for new housing and kitchen facilities.  It replaces the existing 67-year-old facility on more fertile land with the potential to live a better, self-sustaining lifestyle.
