  • “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, near the Tanzania border.

    Founded by Kerry Wanjala (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.

    Here at Footprints our children will remain as a part of our family for life.
