Who we are

Partnering to Give Back Hope

We're on a mission to deliver hope for a better future and positive change now to the lives of children and families in Kenya and around the world.

Every penny you donate supports our efforts to better the lives of children and families who are living in extreme poverty, either in informal settlements or on the streets. With your help, we support full-time missionaries and local staff who carry out our mission:

  • To feed and rescue homeless children living on the streets of Nairobi.
  • To integrate rescued children back into their families.
  • To sponsor rescued or vulnerable children to keep them in school and with their families.
  • To engage in prevention care, tutoring, and mentoring within the community.

Whether it's rescuing children through relationship-building, renewing hope through spiritual ministry and support, or simply providing a hot meal, Giving Back Hope Together is dedicated to making the world a better place.

Program Directors

Linstone "Sonny" Ouma
Founder, CEO

Founder and Director, Linstone Sonny Ouma Omollo, was born and raised in Kangemi, an informal settlement. HIs parents were not financially capable of taking him to school with his siblings. Because of this and lack of food, Sonny and his older brother ran to the streets to look for food. They were rescued by a Kenyan missionary who put them into a boarding school right next to his family's home. The social workers realized this and allowed them to live at home and still come to the school every day. Sonny was then enrolled into a child sponsorship program. Through the sponsorship program, he completed schooling all the way through university. He wanted to give back to the community and that is when he started GBHT. Sonny met Katie in 2017 and they were married in 2021. They have a 1 year old son, Gerald.

Katie Ouma
Administrator, Sponsorship Coordinator

Director, Katie Ouma, is also GBHT’s Administrator and Child Sponsorship Coordinator.

She felt God calling her to full-time ministry. Katie volunteered for GBHT during the year of 2019, became a full-time part of GBHT in 2021. Katie met Sonny Ouma in 2017 and they were married in 2021. They now have a one year old son, Gerald.
