First Love Kenya Children’s Home is located on a beautiful 5 acre plot in the Karen section of Nairobi. The home provides a safe, loving, Christ-centered environment for orphaned and at risk children.  In addition, First Love Kenya assists many needy former residents who have been reintegrated with guardians, parents, or next-of-kin with educational scholarships.





Daraja House (bridge in English) is a hostel which provides reasonably priced meals, lodging, and transportation for young adults while they    pursue college or vocational school studies.  The goal of Daraja House is to serve its residents as bridge from dependence to independence.






Baraka Women’s Center (blessing in English) is a sewing and seamstress training program targeted towards impoverished widows and single moms. Scholarships are available for women who qualify for the program and graduates receive a new sewing machine and assistance in setting up their own micro-business.

Mtwapa Center is a newly constructed facility located north of Mombasa in the coastal city of Mtwapa.  The Mtwapa Center was originally planned to be a rescue center for orphaned and at risk children, but during the construction period the Kenyan government ceased from granting licenses for new rescue centers.  Currently First Love Kenya is considering several options with local government officials as to how to this new facility and the 6 acre compound can best serve the community. 





 First Love Kenya’s Food for Life ministry provides food to needy families and school lunch programs.





First Love Kenya formed the First Love Network as an avenue to partner with like-minded ministries. The First Love Network provides assistance through the provision of food, construction projects, training, and scholarships.  Through the First Love Network, First Love Kenya currently provides services to Hoywik School, Moonlight Academy, and Future Stars Primary School.

First Love International

We are a non-denominational mission agency founded for the purpose of bringing love and hope to un-reached people residing in impoverished regions of the world.



At First Love we seek to “flesh out” the passion of Christ before a lost and dying world. In our ministries we have deliberately chosen to major on those whom the world might consider to be the minors.  And in that regard... our priority is to invest our greatest resources and energies on the least, because we recognize that whenever we reach out to the least of these, we do it for Jesus.


I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of mine, you did for me...Jesus.

Matthew 25:40
