These children are therefore forced to grow up either with relatives, good Samaritans, in the streets, with foster parents or in children’s homes and orphanages.

In this article, WoK highlights some of the biggest names in the Kenyan entertainment scene who grew up without their parents and were raised in Children’s Homes and orphanages, proving that you can be successful no matter where you are from. Read on to find out more.
