The Story of Asande House

One day, a young boy came up to the Royce family’s house asking for food. Unable to deny a child, they welcomed him in and discovered he was an orphan. No orphanage would take him as they were all filled to capacity. Where there was one hungry child, there were many. Soon children in the area heard that there was food at the Royce residence. They started to come each saying “Asande” upon entering, which means “thank you” in Kitalili slang. They soon called themselves the “Asande House”…

Meet the Kids

Each child has a unique story about how they came to the Asande House


Rosefina Royce, co-founder of Asande House, is living in South Riding, Virginia, and has spent the last 14 years supporting these children on her own income. She works 3 jobs here in the United States and sends back what she can. The orphanage has little to no income other than the few hundred dollars Royce sends them monthly…
