About Macecall Children’s Mission

Macecall Children’s Mission was founded in 2011 by Alfred and Margaret Muthomi to address the needs of orphaned and vulnerable children in Kenya.  The name of the organization is derived from the vision Apostle Paul had in Acts 16:9-10 of the man from Macedonia requesting help, just as helpless children in Kenya need rescue, care and education.

Alfred holds a degree in Business Administration from the University of Nairobi and is very passionate about helping children in need of care and protection.

He believes that every child deserves a chance to pursue their dreams regardless of their background and the economic status of their parents. Alfred has an experience of more than 15 years in program management. Prior to joining children charitable programs, Alfred worked with a microfinance organization involved in community development.

Besides a passion of helping children, Alfred is an avid farmer – growing crops, rearing chicken and livestock.  Alfred’s knowledge has been vital to growing food for the children and trading with the surplus to support other aspects of the program.  He has hopes for greater sustainability by growing in this area through solar powered irrigation system so they can grow crops throughout the year.  (See the Donate page for more information.)
