Kenya Orphanages

In 1995 Ben & Mary Bahati began taking orphaned children off the streets of Kenya into their home to show Christ's love to them and give them a chance at a better life. In 2000 the Lord provided an opportunity for them to care for more children than their small home could accommodate by giving them an orphanage in Eldoret, Kenya. Shortly thereafter, another orphanage became available in Kakamega, Kenya, and Ben and Mary accepted the challenge of overseeing yet another orphanage by staffing it with family members and members of their church. Since 2005 individuals at CEPC have supported children at three orphanages associated with Ben and Mary. After Ben's untimely death in 2014, the Kakamega orphanage was closed and the boys were moved to the Jua Kali orphanage.
