Welcome to The Good Life Orphanage. We are a family-run, Kenya based, UK founded charity. We opened in 2008 and now care for over 50 orphaned children. Every single penny we raise goes directly to the orphanage; no admin, travel or accommodation costs are taken by anyone involved.

Meet the children

We currently have over 60 children in the orphanage.
