Our Home

We provide a safe, loving, and faith-based home.

Hekima Place started as a safe home for 10 girls on rented property.

We have since grown to support over 90 incredible girls. Each girl has her own story of hardship but more importantly, she has her own story of survival… of resilience.

Transforming Educational Opportunities for Children in Kenya.

As we prepare our girls to become future citizens and leaders, we must give them the best education possible.

Hekima Hills Learning Centre was designed to not only provide access to quality education for each girl residing at Hekima Place but to provide the same opportunity to each boy and girl in the local community.

Hekima place has played a big role in molding me to the person I am today. Hekima gave me a golden opportunity to go to school and gain knowledge which has contributed to having a better future.

Through my growing up at Hekima Place, I learned that sharing, caring, loving, and helping one another is a gift that should be implemented in the world to make it a better place.

I am so grateful to Hekima for giving me a chance to be part of the family.

Through these kindred spirits of Hekima Place, I was able to become the best version of myself. From being orphaned when l was little, to raising a child as a single mom due to the unexpected death of my husband and his father, l still remain empowered because l know that Hekima taught me l am the strongest person l know.

Because of Hekima Place, I feel I have grown to become a very matured, responsible, respectful, talented, and more confident person. All I can say is that Hekima is the best home I had and I will never forget what they did for me from when I was very young all the way to today.

You can make a difference!

We invite you to share your unique gifts to help our girls of Hekima Place.
