Too Little Children is delighted to announce that we are beginning to build a permanent and sustainable home for the children of Jemo House in 2017. Jemo House is currently home to 11 children, ranging from 5 to 18 years. We have rapidly outgrown our rental home and need our own space to grow our home and raise up many children for years to come.In February of this year we purchased 1.5 acres of land in the Maseno area. The new home will be 2,600 sq feet to house 22 children and 3 house parents. We want to be able to serve more children while still maintaining a family environment.

Sustainability Plan

Our land will allow us to increase our ability to be
self-sufficient. It comes with mature mango, avocado, and banana trees, which we plan to maintain and multiply. We have already started planting an extensive shamba (garden) that will include maize, beans, ground nuts, cassava and a large variety of vegetables. We hope to grow the majority of our own food within a year of moving. There is also a fish pond on the land
which we plan to restock to raise our own Tilapia. Our small family of chickens will have plenty of room to grow, and rabbits and a dairy cow are planned in the near future. Basic farming skills are essential in Kenya and we hope to use our land to teach our children and send them out with these necessary skills to maintain their own land
