About Company

Here for children since 1938.
Why? Because we need each other.

 

Every child needs someone who’s on their side – someone who cares about what happens to them and works to ensure their highest good. ChildFund is a global community of people who care about children and take action to help them live at their fullest potential at every stage of their lives.

We are people who believe that we all have a lot more in common than we think. That every child – like every person – is of equal worth and value, indispensable. And that each of us has a part to do.

We are people who know that we can’t afford to lose a single child to hunger, violence, disease or neglect. And that when children grow up healthy, educated and safe, everyone wins.

We are parents, teachers, entrepreneurs, doctors, artists, social workers, advocates and grown-up kids of all ages and life paths, all around the world, who believe every child should be free to do what they do best: play, learn, grow, explore and experience the wonder of life.

That’s why we partner to support children facing challenges no child should have to. Why we connect people, institutions and resources to help children in 23 countries beat the toughest obstacles in their lives. Because they need us, and we need them. Because we need each other, every single one of us.

Kenya is an independent republic on the Indian Ocean. Kenya is considered the economic and transportation hub of East Africa, and its GDP has grown about 5 percent annually, benefiting a growing middle class. Nonetheless, unemployment is at about 40 percent, and inadequate infrastructure and corruption have hampered its economic growth and development. Inflation and food shortages have further plagued the country since 2012. ChildFund Kenya implements a host of projects through 38 local partner organizations that assist children and youth in 25 counties. The projects focus on education, health, water and sanitation, economic livelihoods and emergency response.

ChildFund has served children in Kenya since 1960. Help make a difference and sponsor a child in Kenya today.

 Ages 0 – 5: Healthy and Secure

ChildFund Kenya and its local partners focus on providing access to clean water and nutritious foods, particularly for families with children under the age of 5, who are vulnerable to waterborne diseases like diarrhea and typhoid. Throughout the country, 48 Early Childhood Development centers received 5,000-liter water vessels to collect rainwater, giving children and adults the opportunity to wash their hands and drink clean water. Also, ECD centers in Nairobi and Kenya’s coastal regions have held workshops (funded in part by a grant) for more than 3,000 caregivers of children ages 0-5 in building healthy relationships and promoting timely development. ChildFund Kenya also has worked to provide healthcare access and training for ECD staff members in building children’s skills so they have a smooth transition to primary school.
