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.

    What came first, the chicken or the egg?

    For our new project, the answer is: Chickens! We’re excited to announce our chicken coop at the Ashirvad home in Tuni, India, our first project in the country. A $33 investment buys one chicken for the coop, and includes feed, construction of the coop, and vaccinations. The project is income generating, and profits will be used to add fruit to the diet of all 79 children , as well as build a computer lab, targeting the nutrition and education access. Get involved!

    Regram from @caitylotz, we’re excited to have her support and commitment to our greenhouse at the Watoto Wema home! An investment of $25 provides fresh vegetables every day for one child living at the home - indefinitely, as long as the greenhouse stands (we also provide training). How awesome is that? You can be a part of a long lasting project that will transform the quality of nutrition for our children. Join us!

    We met Tika during our research trip to India last year. She’s a spunky girl who has dreams of becoming a teacher, and her favorite color is pink. In general, orphan and vulnerable children living in orphanages are often portrayed as sad and hopeless cases, but this is simply not true. They are bright, funny, loving kids, no different from your own children, your nieces, nephews, neighbors, brothers, and sisters. It’s time the world starts seeing them as such, and realizing there is a lot to gain from investing in their well-being and potential.

    Have you checked out our Greenhouse project at the Watoto Wema home in Kenya? The farm will provide fresh veggies to the children’s diet, something which the home currently cannot afford. In addition, the home will sell excess produce to local vendors, which will help pay for the older children’s school fees. How awesome is that?! You can invest in this project on our site, and be a part of empowering children with the tools they need to grow healthy and happy.
