Orphanage Tourism
We are opposed to "Orphanage Tourism".
The care and upbringing of the orphans at Casuarina House is the responsibility of local Kenyan full time professional staff who take the role of parents  under the direction of ‘The Sure Foundation Home for Orphans Project, Utange’, a charity registered and operating in Kenya. Their ethos is that the children grow up in a loving and nurturing family environment provided by their staff through Christian values and education. Groups do not at any time take the place of the House Parents or staff and are never left alone or un-supervised with the children. The Feed500 programme, High School and Health Centre are also under the direction of the Kenyan charity and volunteers may assist with this under their supervision.


IMPORTANT NOTICE
It is important that all volunteers and visitors to the Orphans Project in Utange understand that they do so entirely at their own risk and must make their own travel and insurance arrangements. 
The Utange Orphans Charity (UK Registered Charity no 1160637) is not involved in any way with arranging or managing trips to the Orphans Project. Volunteers and Visitors must make all arrangements direct with the Kenya based charity, The Sure Foundation Home for Orphans Project. This can be done via Debbie Scott-Robinson debbie@utangeorphans.org.  Please also see our Statement on 'Orphanage Tourism'.
