Nyumbani Village is Kenya’s sustainable HIV/AIDS community.
Nyumbani Village provides a stable home for the most vulnerable. It is envisioned as a temporary home, a haven for healing and growth and self-reliance.
The village was completed in 2006, the realization of Nyumbani Founder Father Angelo D’Agostino and Sister Mary Owens’s dream – creating a holistic model of caring for the whole child. Villagers receive comprehensive medical care, K-12 education, vocational education, psychosocial support, shelter, and food. Our emphasis is on nutrition, parenting, and economic self-sufficiency while respecting local cultural traditions.
We are a village of families
Nyumbani Village is the first sustainable village for AIDS orphans in Kenya. Our vibrant community is a model for innovative green technology and building methods.
Nyumbani Village is self-sustaining, from crops to farm animals to products.
Permanent change is possible
Even in poverty-stricken, dry areas of Africa with chronic HIV/AIDS crises, it is possible to reclaim the land, live in safe, durable shelter, and have enough food to eat.
Nyumbani Village changes lives. Nyumbani means home.
