Everyone who spends time at the world-renowned Shoe4Africa Children’s Village – whether they are patients, parents, doctors, medical students, or donors being given a tour – leaves with a profound sense that this is no ordinary center for healing the sick child.


Perhaps it’s because the ‘Village’ based around our Shoe4Africa Children’s Hospital will care for around 255,500 patients each year in 2025, most of whom come from exceptionally poor and marginalized communities. Patients are referred to us from not only Western Kenya but also from neighboring African countries. It should be noted that there isn’t a single public children’s hospital in East and Central Africa outside of our facilities.

Those who pass through the doors tell us that the Hospital does far more than treat these patients each year – it embodies the hope of a healthy childhood, the unwavering faith of parents in healing, and the dedication of medical professionals to prevention and cure.

The heart of the center, built in Eldoret in 2015, the Shoe4Africa Children’s Hospital is the second stand-alone tertiary hospital in sub-Saharan Africa dedicated entirely to child healthcare, following the Red Cross Children’s Hospital in South Africa, which opened in 1956.

While delivering world-class pediatric treatment and care, we strive to make the greatest impact possible and empower others to do the same. We are a teaching hospital for the Moi University Medical School, providing training to pediatric healthcare professionals. We also conduct groundbreaking research into childhood illnesses that has a global impact.

At Shoe4Africa Children’s Village, we inspire hope, foster healing, and pave the way for a healthier future for children across Africa.

Contact us if you wish to be part of an exciting team that delivers any of these projects to Kenya.
