Footprints Orphanage
  • “A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.”

    - Forest E. Witcraft

  • Footprints Orphanage is a childrens home in the Shimba Hills in Kenya. Founded by Kerry Watson from Burton-on-Trent, England it provides not only shelter, food and water for orphaned and vulnerable children, but also the quality education, love, security and hope for the future they truly deserve, in a family environment.


    2012 saw the construction of school classrooms and now children from both the children's home and the local community are educated at 'Footprints Academy', giving them quality education for quality of life.
