Our non-profit community based organisation operates from Kangema township in the Central Highlands of Kenya, where livelihoods depend largely on subsistence agriculture and commercial crops such as tea and coffee. Although the area may appear to be rich in terms of natural resources, HIV/AIDS is prevalent in the area and has had a devastating impact on local communities and their ability to provide for the many children left behind. On top of losing their parents, and some being infected themselves, these children have to face a huge amount of social stigma attached to their situation. Even those who have the benefit of having a granny, grandpa, aunt, uncle, family friend to look after them, it is a major struggle. Not only do we aim to provide support for children orphaned by HIV/AIDS but also those whose parents have died by other means. Some of the children we are helping were affected harshly by the 2007 post-election violence and lost family members in the ensuing riots.
Below is a map to show where we are based and run our activities in Kenya.

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.
