What is Kitechild?

We are an NGO creating sustainable micro-projects that transform the standards of care for children living in orphanages. The projects we develop with orphanage directors are environmentally sound and create a significant change in a child’s quality of life, whether in their nutritional access, educational opportunities, or emotional well-being.  Supporting these aspects of a child’s development while they are living in an orphanage improves their capacity not only to stay healthy, but also to do well in school, rise out of poverty, and become productive members in their own communities.

    Happy Earth Day! The caretakers at our partner home Mercy Mission are as excited as we are about our solar panel project that has just completed funding: the solar panels will completely eliminate the home’s dependence on coal, but will also save them enough money to feed the kids 3 meals a day as opposed to the current 2. Not only is this project good for the kids, it’s good for our earth! #earthday #happyearthday #green #eco #liberia #africa #love #happy #gogreen #solar #sun #sunshine #change #impact #positive #happy #food

    Julio from the Hogar de Amor home in Honduras meets his half siblings for the first time. His mother cannot care for all 5 of her children, so Julio and his sister live at the HHK home. The home makes great efforts to allow the kids to be in touch with their families, and that’s one of the reasons we are partnered with them. A child living in an orphanage is not necessarily an orphan, more simply a child in need of proper care, nutrition, and emotional support. #kitechild #honduras #family #love #smile #cute #adorable #life #giveback #impact #change #positive #happy #siblings #sisters #perspective

    Our Kenyan liaison, Martha, has sent the first quarter report on the water project at the Fiwagoh home in Nakuru, Kenya.

    "The savings from the process of purifying water through boiling or buying have been used to hire an extra caretaker called Beatrice Wanjiku .she previously worked on casual basis but now has been hired on permanent basis. Beatrice is helping during the day with the younger children including cooking for them."

    Clean water + a new caretaker? Sounds like a winning project to us. Thank you to our water donors for being a part of this! #water #cleanwater #children #health #impact #innovate #kitechild #ngo #kenya #nakuru #happy #healthy #smile #love #care #sweet #cool
