Karibuni Children

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

Karibuni raises awareness and money to support children from the slums and streets of Kenya. Put simply, their objective is to help the poorest of the poor to fulfil their potential. Each year, the organization is taken aback by the excellent results achieved by children living in the most challenging of circumstances. Those children can go on to become independent, productive citizens who will make a positive contribution to their country. They are prepared to be restless to do so for more children.

The organization is nimble, making quick decisions when the need arises, lines of communication are short and they are close to the projects they partner. Most years, Karibuni volunteers are to be seen working alongside our Kenyan partners, building, renovating and decorating classrooms. Practical help is greatly valued by the partners and it gives the volunteers an invaluable insight into the challenges which the schools face day-to-day.
