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.

    Today is World AIDS day, a day to spread awareness about a condition that still affects millions of people around the world. For children living with HIV/AIDS in rural parts of India, they often suffer from social stigma due to lack of knowledge on the condition, and are ousted from their communities. Many end up in orphanages like the Arias Home, where they receive not only the proper medications to keep them strong, but a loving, supportive environment and education on managing a life with HIV/AIDS. Our project at the home is a solar lighting installation that will save the home enough funding each month so they may add more fruits to the children’s diet, a crucial addition to their nutrition so they can stay healthy. You can support this project on our home page, and join us in creating change, while supporting the health and happiness of vulnerable children living with HIV/AIDS. #worldaidsday #AIDS #HIV #health #awareness #impact #india #children #healthy #giveback #change #sustainable #solar #eco #fruits #nutrition #smile #cute

    WOAH…check out the size of the Tilapia from our aquaponics farm at the HHK home in Honduras! That is one big beautiful fish that will provide a lot of healthy proteins and vitamins to the children at the home. Looks like they are excited/proud to show off their dinner! Thank you to all who have supported this project - it’s really helping transform the quality of nutrition for the kids. Bon Apetit! 🎣 #food #fish #nutrition #health #dinner #foodie #happy #healthy #children #honduras #impact #giveback #change #support #aquaponics #farm #farming #sustainable #eco

    A person, a place, a feeling - what does home mean to you? Is it a place you feel safe, a place you feel warm? We asked out partner children what home meant to then, and our proud to share it with the world in the premiere of our new video, What is Home? Watch now so you can not only learn more on how Kitechild works to help orphanages be more like homes, but also so you can see that the meaning of home is not that different across the world. So, what does home mean to you? Share in the comments!

    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!
