Raped children's safe house

I am an Australian girl in my 20's who has JUST opened an acute care rescue and rehab centre for raped and assaulted babies and kids in May outside Nairobi. The children are as young as 6 months old and have violent assaults, severe burns and rape trauma. I am providing extensive rehabilitation and safety for babies, pregnant children and little kids from extreme sexual violence, prostitution, FGM and child marriage. THIS IS NOT ANOTHER CHILDRENS HOME.

I am globally registered and 100% TAX deductible, and have been nominated for Australian of the Year this year. Finalists are announced in November 2017.

ALL Children's homes are businesses that profit from children's abuse and keep them neglected. I AM HERE TO BREAK THAT CYCLE and stop children being sold and their abuse never treated so that adults can financially benefit. MY PROJECT is a step down facility providing top post trauma care, and providing an environment that can ensure recovery and children can go on to commencement or continuance of education.

After 2 1/2 years working in the field and on the ground in Kenya and working with partner organisations to care for my kids, I have moved to Nairobi to launch my own Acute Care safe house so I can have a 24/7 role and do the best job possible. The centre will bridge the gap between hospital and school, ensuring the best medical care and stablility is given to each child after trauma. Once the children are well they will enter my education program and attend school funded by the Foundation.  My activism and child protection expertise saves children as young as newborns from the horror of sex trafficking, violence, rape, child marriage and FGM to name a few.

My centre has capacity to hold 40 - 50 children but I can't do this without funds to support them. Once rehabilitated at my centre, they will be educated in boarding school and also live there which is common for children without families who have sponsors to be able to do.
This will then allow for a permanent flow of needy children to access my services and my safe house. As a psychology graduate and Medical School candidate, I have a passion for public and paediatric health and also work tirelessly to provide healthcare and sexual education to poverty stricken persons.

Please HELP ME with costs to complete centre furnishings, HUGE medical bills, therapy fees and essentials such as food and clothes.  The house is secured, but I need essentials and food and money for medical costs URGENTLY.  Every dollar counts.
