Projects We Support
The Brighton Jones Global Guesthouse
The Brighton Jones Global Guesthouse was our first Global Compassion Project. The guesthouse provides a place for international and domestic volunteers to stay while they provide much-needed support to GRACE Nanana and Kajiado Child Care Centre, both located in rural Kajiado County. The guesthouse was officially opened in January 2018. With 16 bunk-beds in dormitory-style rooms and 3 private, double rooms, the guesthouse can comfortably house up to 22 guests for short or extended stays.
The Kajiado Child Care Centre is an organization the rehabilitates and educates children with physical disabilities to help them reach their full potential with integrity. It is an 80-bed facility with physiotherapists, a medical clinic, and a primary school located in Kajiado.
GRACE Nanana is a rescue center where Maasai girls can escape the illegal but still practiced customs of early marriage and female genital mutilation in order to pursue education. Full-time housing and care is provided on-site at Nanana Winbridge Education School, located in Kajiado town, Kenya. GRACE Nanana works to educate and empower girls to chose the life they want to live.
The Ruben Centre is an “Oasis of Hope” in a densely-packed informal settlement near Nairobi, Kenya. The centre provides free primary education to thousands of children, child care, health care, vocational training, and many other resources through dozens of innovative programs which help empower residents of the community.
