Wamumbi Orphan Care is a non-profit community based organisation that reaches out to orphaned children and their guardians in Kangema District of Central Province, Kenya. We provide the support they are otherwise lacking from their local communities. Our services are responsive to the needs of the people we are working with and we have a project management committee that is made up of six of our grannies and grandpas. This ensures continuous dialogue and avoids us getting carried away with ideas that won't work on the ground!
Through the work we do, we are not only mentoring and training children in vital life skills but also providing a support group for elderly grandparents who are struggling to care for their young grandchildren and often feel isolated due to their circumstances.
Supported by Wamumbi Orphan Care Foundation (Registered Charity Number 1157642) in the UK

This month we received a wonderful donation of solar lights from Jaguar Land Rover, enough for all our children and guardians. This will make a huge difference - it means the children can study in the evenings and other chores can be done much more easily after it gets dark.
