Food Baskets for Makindu, Kenya!
 
For $20, a food basket will provide a meal plus bulk food for a few daily meals to a hungry household. Households in Makindu are usually 4 to 5 young children living with their grandmother in a basic mud hut, the parents having succumbed to AIDS. The grandparents struggle to keep kids fed, due to age, Kenya's unforgiving lands and widespread poverty. These food baskets will aid in celebrating the cultural and religious traditions this winter, and feed 800 households in need.
Feed 1,800 orphaned children in rural Kenya.
 
This project will help feed 1,800 orphaned and vulnerable children every day. Malnutrition is an inherent problem throughout rural Kenya, which is further complicated by many political, social and economic factors. One nutritious meal a day will save a child's life. In as little as four months, a malnourished child can transform into a healthy child. A healthy, well fed child can then attend school and gain knowledge and skills for a productive and hopeful future. project reportread updates from the field
Help child victims get justice
 
Orphaned girls in Kenya are extremely vulnerable and at high risk for sexual assault. Makindu Children's Program offers legal counsel, advocacy, mental and physical healthcare, and trauma support to child victims of sexual assault. This project will help provide much needed social support to Sofia and other victims like her, in navigating through the slow and painful legal process to bring perpetrators in Kenya to justice. project reportread updates from the field
