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.

    Did you know that half of the world’s outsourced IT services come from India? In this technology based society, computer skills are essential, which is why the profits from our income generating chicken farm at Ashirvad Home are designed to provide the children with computers and a teacher along with fresh produce every other day. This is change, not charity, in action!

    A blast from the past! A #tbt to Kitechild’s trip to Kenya in 2012. We loved getting to meet the beautiful children, like this handsome boy from the Good Samaritan Home. Each and every child touched our hearts and taught us so much about Kenyan culture. During that trip, we met with community leaders who helped us assess the most pressing needs and informed our decisions regarding future sustainable projects. We have since successfully launched 9 projects such as solar panels and dairy cows in Kenya. We can’t wait to see what the future holds!

    The chicken farm at Ashirvad Home is up! Thank you to the hard work of everyone who made this project possible- it will make a significant difference in the lives of 79 kids! The chickens are being raised in order to be sold in the market while some remain to keep the project sustainable. The children will now be able to have fresh produce every other day, as a result of the profits from this project. As the project grows, the income generated will also help to purchase computers and pay for a computer teacher for the children. We are so excited for the kids to gain valuable computer skills that will help them in their education and future job search!

    The latest UNICEF report shows that we are making progress on global child welfare, but that the poorest children are still being left behind. UNICEF says that the most disadvantaged children should be at the heart of new sustainable projects, which is exactly what our projects do. We all need to work together to make sure every child has a chance. http://uni.cf/1J0DcGn

    Paulo Coelho said it best: “Travel is never a matter of money but of courage.” We’ve taken that advice to heart as we traveled through India. There were many unexpected twists and turns in our journey… but connecting with our kids and seeing our projects go up makes it all worth it. We can’t wait to share all of our updates with you!
