We have relocated to Nairobi, Kenya and have been using skype computer to computer with no problems We are interested in our children being able to call us from their cell phones in the USA to our computer in Kenya. I want to be sure if we pay for unlimited international, they can call us without having any charges on their end.

As I understand your children will be calling from US to your Skype account that you are using on your computer.
If this is the case then you could purchase an Online Number in US: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA331/What-is-an-Online-Number
Your children will be calling local US number(Online Number) with local rates and if you are online on your computer then you can pick up the call.
Note: From Skype side there are no charges to your children in US, but they still need to pay for the call they make from mobile to landline number(Online Number) in US. It should be charged as regular landline call.
My problem is calling a Kenya mobile from my skype. I have credit. I get message to say invalid number but I have no problem in calling same number from my iphone. Any ideas?
