The Kiota Dream

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

We started to develop The Kiota Dream in 2015. Now Kiota Children’s Support Center sinds 2012 in een huurhuis waarin kinderen, medewerkers, bezoekers en vrijwilligers allemaal samenkomen. Dit zorgt er vaak voor dat iedereen elkaar in de weg loopt. Daarnaast is een huurhuis altijd een risico, want als de eigenaar zijn huis terug wil, is het afgelopen. Verder willen we meer kunnen bereiken met onze visie in het vizier en daarvoor is meer ruimte nodig.


Space for the children
  • physical space allows mental space as well, especially with processing traumas
  • space to do your homework quietly and peacefully
  • space to receive family

Space for the employees
  • separate living and working
  • consult without being interrupted

Space for the volunteers
  • separation of volunteers and children in order to prevent problems with attachment
  • privacy
  • cook their own meals

Relationship with the families
  • family can be taken in without disturbance
  • family is able to really spend time with the child
  • conversations and consults with the social worker can take place in private


Self-sufficiency

  • groenten kweken en het houden van kippen, geiten of koeien 
  • andere projecten om eigen inkomsten te genereren kunnen worden bedacht

Layout of the area

Naar aanleiding van de bovenstaande voordelen ten opzichte van een huurhuis, willen we 3 gezinshuizen bouwen met ieder 8 kinderen en een huismoeder en eventueel een huisvader. Op deze manier bootsen we zoveel mogelijk een Keniaans gezin na en kan ieder kind de nodige persoonlijke aandacht krijgen. 

A child may legally be cared for for a maximum of 3 years. In the meantime, the social workers and psychologist ensure that the family is ready to welcome the child back into the family.

In addition to the family homes, we want to build an office building, a general covered outdoor area (shade), a volunteer house, a manager's house, a community training center and guesthouse. We want to keep enough land on the rest of the site to grow fruit and vegetables for Kiota and to keep (small) livestock.

Community Training Center & Guesthouse

'Self-reliance' is what we want to teach the children and families. In the form of the well-known 'Don't give a fish, but a fishing rod to learn to take care of yourself', we want to provide the families of the children and the community with all kinds of training in the community training center that is being built. A great mission if we can achieve this on our site at The Kiota Dream! They will be given tools to take care of themselves and learn certain subjects with which they can earn their own money. This allows them to buy healthy food, a stable house, beds and mattresses, clothing and other things, such as water and electricity. This will allow more families to care for their children.

The guesthouse is a way to generate income. The children can also find a place to gain work experience here if they are following an education.   

Four phases

Since it is quite a large project, we divide it into 4 phases.

  1. Phase 1 is the fencing of the plot of land, the construction of 3 family houses and the necessary facilities such as drilling a well, installing electricity and septic tanks. We also want the facility to be ready so that the children can move here.
  2. Phase 2 is the construction of the community training center, the office building and the guard room.
  3. Phase 3 is the construction of the volunteer house, the manager's house and the guesthouse.
  4. Phase 4 is the construction of the shade and the shop.

Wilde Ganzen

Together with Wilde Ganzen we have almost raised the money for phase 1 to make The Kiota Dream come true. We will have it in September 2021 stuk land gekocht.  De omheining is geplaatst. We zijn nu bezig met fondsenwerving voor de gezinshuizen en… de waterpomp, watertoren en watertank behorende bij de waterput. Die laatste was onvoorzien door de verwachting water te kunnen pompen uit een rivier in de buurt. Dit bleek helaas toch niet mogelijk.

Zolang we nu geen water hebben, kunnen we fase 1 niet starten…
