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 the world longest cricket marathon lasted over 150 hours? After visiting the Zia Home in India this summer, we got the chance to see some of the kids play cricket and show off their skills! Happy weekend, everyone!

    A #tbt to our trip to Watoto Wema in Kenya! This was a life-changing trip that allowed us to meet the kids at our partner home and get a sense for what their life is like. It really reinforced for us why we do what we do. Since then, we’ve partnered with them on a greenhouse project, which works to improve the nutrition of 57 children, while remaining a sustainable project for years to come.
