St Irene Orthodox Mission and Orphanage supports orphans and vulnerable children. It was started in the year 2010 by Fr. Constantinos and prosbylene Teresa Jepchumba who played a great role since its inception to date.
The institution is situated in Njabini South Kinangop sub county Kenya. The institution has a population of 165 vulnerable children out of these 72 are totally orphans and live entirely in the orphanage. By the grace of God these 72 orphans are baptized and live the sacramental life of the orthodox faith.
St. Irene Orthodox Mission Center started in a rented room that served as both a church and a catechetical classroom. Papadhia Teresa was instrumental during the formative years of the mission center, during this time Fr. Constantinos was a student at the Makarios III Seminary in Nairobi. It was during these first three years that St. Irene Mission Center developed into what it is today.
