Equipped with a piece of land personally donated by the Founder( Martha Mghendi), BIF is already constructing the home. The dormitory that will accommodate 25 girls at a time, is almost completed. After that, constructions of the dormitory that will accommodate 25 boys at a time will be started.
BIF will offer temporary accommodation to maximum 50 minors at a time, with an aim of expanding facilities in future to accommodate more minors. The home will also have classrooms that will allow the children to continue with their education while living at the home.
Our aim is to have 50 children at a time for a maximum of 3 months and in exceptional cases 6 months for children who need extra time for more treatment. During the period that these children will be living at the home, each child will be allocated a Social Worker to follow up the cases. The Social Worker will work hand in hand with the Children’s Department and Government Officials to ensure that the legal process is followed in handling the case until the perpetrator is put behind bars. There will be trained Children Psychologists/ Psychiatrists who will be in charge of providing treatment and counseling to the children.
The home will also have classrooms ,teachers and a library that will allow the children to continue with their education while living at the home. We also hope to raise enough funds that will help BIF build a Dispensary at the Home.
