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.

    Moooo! We are happy to announce that our Dairy Cowb roject at our partner home, Flying Kites, has launched this month! The project is the purchase of 3 dairy cows for the home, which will provide milk for all 38 children as well as some of the community children at the home’s school. Milk is crucial to a child’s healthy growth and development, as the saying goes, it does a body good! Thank you to all out supporters of this project, more photos to come! #kitechild #impact #NGO #children #cow #dairy #milk #health #healthyliving #smile #happy #food #foodie #nutrition #kenya #africa #inspire #sustainable #eco

    As the saying goes, teach a man to fish..can you spot the Tilapia peeking their heads out for feeding? The kids at the HHK home in Honduras love feeding the fish and watching them grow! We are proud that our projects are not only sustainable, but teach the kids life skills and responsibility. This Aquaponics project will allow the children at HHK to eat fresh veggies and fish, all from their own farm, something which the home was unable to consistently provide before. Thank you for investing in this project! #aquaponics #honduras #farm #fish #tilapia #food #foodie #nutrition #impact #change #sustainable #eco #green #animals #healthy #cute #inspire #inspiring

    "So which one are we eating today?" Our 2nd quarter reports are in from Nairobi, and the chicken farms are going strong! The kids love to be involved in the caring of the hens and collecting eggs. They mostly consume the eggs for protein, but every once in a while when a chicken misbehaves… #kids #cute #food #kitechild #project #impact #nairobi #kenya #change #yummy #healthy #happy #positive #inspire #sustainable

    Our Aquaponics farm is growing! The kids at the HHK home in Honduras are learning so much about plants, fish, and the colorful ways to check for a healthy PH balance of the ecosystem. They’ll soon be eating organic homegrown veggies and fish! #aquaponics #fish #food #foodie #healthy #healthyliving #organic #green #farm #homegrown #happy #children #eco #change #impact #colors #science #aquaculture #honduras
