Most Urgent Need
It has come to our attention that armed robbers have targeted other schools near In Step Children’s Home and Academy in Kenya. As a result, plans are in action to shore up security and protect those under our care. Our plan is to construct a guard station and perimeter fence with alarms. We will also hire additional security guards.

Special Projects Around Campus
- Multipurpose Workshop – Combination compound workshop, technical training center, and tool & storage building. This would be a pole building construction consisting of multiple bays; woodshop, metal/welding shop, mechanical/automotive shop, tool room, possible paint booth, and material storage area including lumber, steel, electrical and plumbing and painting materials. Providing secure, adequate room to do multiple diverse projects and training sessions without regard for weather conditions or loss of tools and/or materials.
- Shipping Container Addition – Building a frame on top of the containers would provide a space for small group activities and projects. For example: exercise sessions, arts and crafts, music practice, meetings, etc. Additionally, this will protect the tops of the shipping containers from rusting out, making these containers usable for many years to come.
