What we do

We believe Education lights the way.

We provide education for children affected by HIV in Kenya.

An entire generation of parents has been lost due to HIV/AIDS in Africa, robbing children of a normal start to life. In Kenya alone, more than 850,000 children have been orphaned due to HIV, and approximately 120,000 children are HIV positive. We aim to help these children surmount the extraordinary challenges in their young lives so they can achieve their full potential and become independent adults. 

A solid education provides a pathway for the vulnerable to pull themselves out of poverty.

We need your help to fund our schools in the Nyumbani Village, a community established to serve 1,000 orphaned children and 100 elders who are all affected by HIV. We also offer a scholarship programme for the most destitute HIV positive children living in eight of the informal settlements around Nairobi. Without our help many of these children might not be able to attend school at all.

Nyumbani Village Schools

A global standard
of community transformation.

We fund two schools in the Nyumbani Village, a community serving 1,000 orphaned children and 100 elders who are all affected by HIV.  Our schools strive to be beacons of excellence, pulling the children out of poverty and the worst start in life, to empower and give them a future through education.

The Nyumbani Children's Home on the outskirts of Nairobi provides outstanding medical, nutritional, physiological and academic care to orphaned children with HIV/AIDS.  It was started in 1992 as the first facility in Kenya for HIV-positive children and is currently home to approximately 100 children ranging in age from newborn to adulthood.
