When it comes to construction in Kenya, it’s always a pleasure to work on a project that impacts society positively.
The Word of Life Dream Centre is a Children’s home that is in the fore front of rescuing abandoned babies and giving a home to homeless children who would otherwise be roaming the streets of Nairobi.
The small boys and girls as well as their adoptive parents were crammed in a house that was not big enough for them. It was such a joy and pleasure to watch these families move into their new, spacious home, where they can be comfortable. The new facility will allow the home to open its doors to even more children in dire need of a home.

As with all construction projects, this one had its own unique set of challenges. After months of construction and working through the challenges, the children and their adopted mothers finally had a place to call home.
The balconies were replaced with huge windows to increase the amount of usable space inside the house.
The side view features large windows that encourage natural lighting.
Dormer windows increase the size of the attic which gives additional dormitory space.
