Imagine growing up without
family, food, home or education

The extreme poverty in Kenya leaves a trail of homeless children. Many of these children either die a premature death through malnutrition or walk the streets in search of food. Some of the most desperate children turn to glue sniffing to suppress the hunger pains, or to prostitution as a means of survival.

Please help us change this situation by creating a bright future for the homeless children of Kenya.

EAMO (East African Mission Orphanage) was established in 1997 by Australian couple, Ralph and May Spinks who today provide a loving home for hundreds of orphaned children including babies and teenage mothers. EAMO is registered as a charitable institution with the Kenyan Government for the purpose of caring for children in desperate need and is taking up the challenge of finding and caring for orphaned children before they reach the streets of Kenya.

5 Children Complete Secondary School

We are very excited at EAMO because 5 of our children just completed their final year of Secondary School. They are Emily, Eunice, Jimmy, Monica and Walter, shown in the photo with Mum & Dad – Ralph & May Spinks, Founders and Directors of EAMO. All of these young people now have a bright future in Kenya because of the generosity of our Supporters. Emily, Eunice, Jimmy, Monica and Walter want to say a special thank you because they know that their life, including the standard of education they received at the EAMO Academy would not be the same as it is today without our Supporters!

Dining Room Extension

Work is underway on the foundations for the extension of our Dining Room. The extension will double the size of the Dining Room and the roof will be replaced, all thanks to A Better World, Canada.

How can I help EAMO?

Ralph & May Spinks are often asked, “how can I help EAMO?” Their answer is always the same, “there are 4 ways to help:

  1. Sponsor a Child
  2. Make a donation
  3. Fund a project
  4. Buy a Gift Card

However, sponsoring a child is the greatest priority because there are still many children at EAMO who do not have sponsors and the Sponsorship Program does not yet cover the full monthly budget for the children!”
