We are excited to announce the admission of two new children to Olturoto Children's Village (OCV). Faith and Morgan Leparakwo are orphaned twins from Sultan Hamud in the Eastern part of Kenya. The twins are six years old and have not been attending school. This is just one of the many challenges they were facing following the death of their mother. At OCV, we are providing proper nutrition, medical care, education, and lots of love. The twins will attend the local primary school as well as receive extra tuition at home. You may have noticed that Morgan is the first boy admitted into OCV. Subsequent admissions will follow in the coming weeks into Joseph House. Join us in welcoming Faith and Morgan!
