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.

    #TBT: to the time we had an epic rooftop dance party with the kids from the Ziah Mission Home near Hyderabad, India. It was their idea to take us up there and blast music -we are constantly amazed at how positive these childrens’ spirits are despite the hardships they’ve been through. We are heading back to India in the spring to finalize several projects, and can’t wait to share our updates! #tbt #throwback #thursday #danceparty #dancelikenooneswatching #fun #joy #happiness #workout #happy #india #inspire #positive

    The kids at the Arias Home of Hope in Chennai, India, take their yoga very seriously! Any guesses on what pose they are going for here? We say they are getting ready for a “Virabhadrasana” pose. As part of our Little Lens Tuesdays, all of these photos are taken by the children themselves with a camera we left behind in 2013. The home houses around 30 HIV/AIDS positive children, and yoga is a great way for them to stay healthy and practice mind body balance. We are currently fundraising for a solar project at the home, please check it out on our site [link in bio] Namaste! #yoga #namaste #breathe #pose #healthy #fitness #workout #awareness #children #kids #cute #ohm #yogini #peace #zen #india #happy #getinvolved #giveback #change #impact #ngo #positive #inspire

    Mmm mmm milk! Did you know our Dairy Cow project at the Flying Kites Home in Njabini, Kenya, is not only providing milk on a regular basis to the kids, but other yummy, healthy treats such as yogurt? What’s next, ice cream? (We wish!) If you invested in this project, a big thanks from our team and the kids at the home! #milk #vitamind #strongbones #yummy #smiles #kenya #africa #farm #farming #cows #dairy #cute #healthy #health #nutrition #yogurt #icecream #food #foodie #impact #invest #giveback

    Is this a zoolander face or what? As part of our “Little Lens” series, we are sharing photos that the children at the Arias Home of Hope take themselves, with a camera we left behind in 2013. Arias is home to 39 children, all HIV/AIDS positive. We are currently fundraising for a solar installation that will end up saving the home enough money to provide eggs and fruits to the children’s diets, crucial additions for their delicate health. Please visit our site to invest in their well being! [link in bio] Our “Little Lens” series will run every Tuesday, and from the pictures we are getting, it seems selfies are pretty popular with kids no matter where in the world! #selfie #zoolander #butfirst #face #cute #india #inspire #getinvolved #giveback #nutrition #health #HIV #AIDS #children #impact #change #photography #toocute #littlelens
