Together we can fight extreme poverty and hunger for the orphaned, vulnerable and physically impaired.


Bethsaida Community Foundation is a community based, non-governmental, non-profit charitable organization for children on the streets, without parents and who are vulnerable (O.V.C's) regardless of their religion, sex, colour or tribe. These children are less fortunate, abandoned, abused, desperate and neglected, and they need us.

We assist and give them parental love, spiritual care, and rehabilitation while offering formal education to nourish their potential capabilities and building their personal capacity through a myriad of activities such as non-formal learning.

We also provide residential care and rehabilitation for street children, less fortuned and parentless children especially those who are affected by HIV/AIDS in Githurai, Ngomongo and Soweto slums in Nairobi Kenya.


Bethsaida Community Foundation is responsible for the Bethsaida Orphanage, founded by Pastor Kamau and the Bethsaida Women's Empowerment Group.

It began in 2009 as a project searching for and nurturing talent in young street children. By the end of the first year they had rehabilitated 14 children, but Pastor Kamau wanted a way to reach more children. In 2011, he opened an orphanage and school for vulnerable children, building the mud walls himself.

Just over three years later, the orphanage now has seven classrooms, accommodating 65 day students and another 33 who live there, and teaching from nursery to Standard 8 - the end of primary education in Kenya. The boarders live in one of the two single-sex dormitories, often sharing beds.

The orphanage has come a long way but there is still a longer way to go - with future projects including building a library and treatment room, and replacing the current corrugated iron walls with brick.


An important goal of Bethsaida Community is to help people get directly involved in making positive change. We welcome anyone who comes with a kind heart, open mind and sharing attitude.
