There are many wonderful programs supporting needy children in Kenya. Here are links to ones that we have visited. Go to their websites to find out what they are doing for children.

The Nambale Magnet School, founded by Rev. Evalyn Wakhusama, opened in January 2009 in Western Kenya. It is now providing a superior education for 250 children.

St. John Bosco Children's Centre in Kitale places orphans and vulnerable children in schools and keeps them in close contact with their families who live in informal settlements.

Friends of Kenya Orphans supports St. Clare Girls School in Meru. The school helps 300 girls to finish their primary and secondary school education and has been getting grades at the top of the list for all schools in the Diocese of Meru.

Ripples International runs a number of programs in and around Meru, including HIV/AIDS counseling and testing, a community clinic, centres for abandoned babies and defiled girls and a primary school.

City of Hope in a remote, rural part of northwestern Tanzania provides a home, food, healthcare and education (academic and vocational) for 100 orphans and vulnerable children. The school also serves an additional 400 students, and their clinic is open to the surrounding community.

Nyumbani operates several programs. HIV+ children are given nutritional, medical, psychological, academic and spiritual care and live at the Children's Home in Karen. Lea Toto provides at home support for HIV+ children in the Kangemi slum of Nairobi. The Village in Kitui provides a family-like setting for orphaned children under the stewardship of "grandparents".

Shepherds of Life helps able members of the community care for the vulnerable members within the same community. Their programs include child sponsorship, HIV/ Aids support, vocational training, social support, and internship and volunteership.
