Despite the challenges in Kenya, street children continue to prosper at Hope Childrens
Home created by Larry Hohler and Joseph Kirima Rwito. In 1975 Larry Hohler, a Long Island
school teacher went to East Africa to teach at Gikumene Secondary School. One student, Joseph
Kirima Rwito, asked Larry to pay for a two-year course at a teacher training college. Larry did and
Joe became a school teacher, headmaster, teachers union leader, the chair for education outreach,
and an advocate for homeless children. When the AIDS pandemic was raging, children became
homeless after the deaths of their parents, and Joe once again turned to Larry to help purchase a
building which became Hope Childrens Home that is now home and school for over 50 boys and
girls. USA, 2009, 35 min.
