St. Steven's Children's Home, Timau A childcare facility for orphaned and needy children from the local region. St Steven's Children’s Home, located in the small town of Timau was set up 14 years ago by the Mwiti family, partners in Sunland. St Steven's provides pastoral care for 40 children, and fulfills their education needs. It also offers day-care for babies and pre-school children of the women that work on the local flower farms. Managed by Mrs. Mwiti and a small team of dedicated workers, the home has a happy and fulfilling atmosphere, with an inspiring commitment to each and every child. Sunland Roses and the Mwiti family are key supporters of this much valued home, together with donors and friends.
