In March of 2012, the 25 boys living in the temporary dormitory building were moved into a permanent dormitory room.

We know that it costs about $130 per dormitory student for the initial purchases needed, like a mattress, pillows, blankets, pajamas, storage trunk, 2 uniforms (weekly and weekend), underwear, socks, toiletries, flip-flops and other personal items.  On-going expenses are estimated to be about $65 per month for each student.

    Plans for the new MCDC campus have always included dormitory rooms for the truly orphaned and other         "high risk" children.  Before this these MCDC children had to go back at night to wherever they stayed in the Mathare slums.  

MCDC Orphanage.

      In July 2010 MCDC established the first dormitory room for 18 high risk girls. 

       In 2011 the first dormitory room for "high risk" boys was opened. 


       As of Jan. 2016 there are 3 fully furnished dormitory rooms in which over 50

       girls now live.  Most are orphans.  On the boys' side two dormitory rooms

       house about 30 boys. 

      Some of the kids said they had never slept in a bed or even had a bar of soap!

      Dormitory girls and boys both have live-in house parents to which they are


      Mamma Jane is always needing help to support these dormitory children.
