We’re changing the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children and youth in East Africa through improved nutrition and focused attention on health so they can grow into productive members of their communities. Partnering with community leaders, we feed orphaned and vulnerable children and youth in East Africa and support sustainable farming enterprises for struggling communities.
IN EAST AFRICA, 54% OF THE POPULATION IS UNDER AGE 20
ALMOST 40% OF CHILDREN UNDER AGE 5 SUFFER CHRONIC MALNUTRITION.
What We Do
Every day, our partners serve 4,000 plus meals to orphaned and vulnerable children and youth.
Health and Hygiene
Our partners immunize more than 1,000 at-risk children and youth and administer HIV medications.
We support sustainable farming programs to promote self-reliance and to teach essential life skills to both youth and their surrounding communities.
We support partners’ initiatives to raise cash crops, develop small scale food enterprises, and decrease donor dependence.
"My name is Naserian and I come from Marsabit county in northern Kenya. Before I came to Nchiru Children’s Village, my job as a young girl was to look after my uncle’s camels. I spent my days with the camels and finding firewood for cooking. I did not eat the whole day until I returned home in the evening with the firewood and camels. "
"My name is Charles. I come from Isiolo County in Kenya. Before I came to Nchiru Children’s Village in 2011, I took care of my family’s few goats which we relied on as our food. I am the first born so it was my duty to find grazing land for our goats. I was herding under a very hot sun, and I moved miles to look for pasture and water which are very difficult to get."
