Children of God Relief Institute

USAID, through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), supports orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS. Interventions emphasize family- centered, socio-economic services that meet children’s most critical needs by involving the public and private sectors in implementing creative and sustainable interventions.

The Children of God Relief Institute (COGRI) runs the Lea Toto (“raise a child” in Kiswahili) community based project in Nairobi County and the Nyumbani (“home” in Kiswahili) Village program in Kitui County. Both activities offer OVC support and HIV care and treatment services for children. COGRI is one of the few programs in Kenya that solely implements specialized pediatric (under 15 years) and adolescent (15-19 years) HIV services. It was also the first program to provide HIV treatment to pediatric patients.
