About Us

Our Projects

Primary School Education

Brightsmile Hill School (BHS) was opened in 2006 to offer a high standard of primary education to the children of TMSCH and local children, from kindergarten level to class eight.

Home and care centre

There are more than one million orphans in Kenya – children who have lost one or both of their parents.  Surviving family members typically provide care, but some children are abandoned or neglected, and many are raised in poverty so deep that it creates immense barriers to normal development and realities.

Lurale Vocational Training Centre

Apart from supporting our youth in different colleges and technical schools we work closely with Lurale training centre where most of the students in our care start their certificate courses before they proceed to other colleges for diplomas.

Our Programs

Strengthening & transforming families in rural areas

This Program targets widows and poor families to prevent crises that can in the long run lead to child neglect, abuse, separation, abandonment or even death.

Home –based care

Our home based care program provides assistance that is shared by many. When you sponsor one child on this program, the sponsorships supports the entire family.

High School Program

It’s no secret that education levels is a playing field of opportunity. It builds confidence and unlocks brighter future. In Kakamega County, about 237,570 children go through primary school (grades 1-8), but only 20% join high school.

Small Business Program

Poor, out-of-school Kenyan youth face bleak job prospects, and many see no practical ways of putting their energies and talents to work.  Some stay at rural homes but find they cannot contribute as they’d like; some head to cities only to find that urban slums at least as difficult.

Small Organisation, BIG impact

We currently support more than 270 young people across all of our programs, and the positive impact spills over to benefit more than 1650 family members
