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…cows are just as fun to ride as horses? Our dairy cow project at the Flying Kites Home in Njabini, Kenya, is providing two glasses of nutritious milk per day to the children living at the home, as well as the community children that are part of Flying Kites’ outreach program! The project has eliminated the home’s dairy cost and allowed them to provide two daily glasses as opposed to one. Thanks for investing in this project! Happy Mooooooonday!! #monday #happynews #update #kenya #impact #change #cows #farm #moo #children #inspire #uplift #smile #milk #healthy #health #nutrition

    We meet so many amazing people in our partner homes and we love to celebrate their commitment. Meet Sanjay, founder of the Lamp Home in India, which cares for over 30 abandoned children in the northeastern jungle of Andrah Pradesh. Sanjay even has a line of crochet goods whose sales support the care and feeding of the children. His selfless commitment to the kids is an inspiring example and reminder of good people in the world! #inspire #hope #example #good #dogood #motivation #sharelove #love #kids #cute #smile #india #international #happy #positive #uplifting #kindness #goodnews #people #stories #philanthropy #giveback

    Most of our partner homes can only afford to feed the children basics like grain and maize. Although filling, they have little nutritious value and leave the kids feeling weak, malnourished, and unable to focus in school. With fluctuating food prices, securing healthy vegetables to feed over 45 children seems impossible and daunting. That’s why the hope lies in our greenhouse farm for the Watoto Wema home in Nairobi. The farm will be on the homes property and will provide nutritious veggies for the children on a daily basis. Full training and support will be provided for the upkeep of the greenhouse, and hey, the kids might pick up a thing or two on farming, which could be useful for their future. If you want to be a part of a sustainable, long lasting change that will improve these children’s lives, head over to our site to invest in the project today!
