Karibuni Children is a UK-based charity which focuses on transforming young Kenyan lives. The Charity was founded in 1995 and is registered with the UK Charities Commission (number 1044872).
Put simply, we believe in the transformational power of education. Our objective is to help Kenyan children from some of the poorest backgrounds, to fulfil their potential and release themselves from the cycle of poverty. At any one time, we are supporting around 700 children across Kenya and our aim is to walk with the children through their whole education. In addition to providing financial support to enable children to attend high-quality educational institutes, we work to reduce other barriers that may prevent those living below the poverty line from maximising their educational potential. This includes provision of nutritious school meals, school uniforms and shoes, learning equipment and feminine hygiene products.
We also support initiatives focused on the empowerment of the wider family unit of each sponsored child; such as providing workshops on parenting skills, sustainable food production, nutrition, entrepreneurship and business skills. To further support this, we work with our partners on infrastructure development projects which have the potential to transform the local community and deliver increased self-sufficiency and sustainability.
