Welcome to Talitha Kum Children’s Home

"Talitha Kum" is a word derived from the Bible (Mark 5:41).

When Jesus raised the daughter of Jairus, He said to her, "Talitha Kum" which means: "Little girl arise".

The home aspires to give back the joy of childhood to children who never had one thus the name Talitha Kum Children's' Home.welcome


The rocky garden projectThe rocky garden project is a new project in Talitha Kum whereby its key objective is to make the children feel they have the capacity to bring change. It started with a small group of medium boys of house Gabriel. For one to join this group has to enroll him/herself to the coordinator who is Charles Mugambi who after will inform the rest of the members. This group came up to renew the face of Talitha Kum which 90% of it is all rocky and with the inspiration to keep the legacy of environmentalist 'Wangari Mathai'.

The project started on a high note, influencing even the adults within Talitha Kum and also well-wishers from the community. A resource mobilization of human resource, plants and flowers was done and many people of good-will contributed each depending on his/her capacity towards the same. The staff, volunteers and sisters took an active role in affirming the children and especially when they could water the flowers early in the morning before going to school and late in the evening after school.
