Remember this? A #tbt to our Clean Water Project at the Fiwagoh Mission Home in Kenya that brought clean water access to the 200 children living there. Getting the kids clean water improved their overall health and reduced the risk of waterborne illnesses. It also saved the home $2,400 each year that was spent purchasing water from the city. This is change, not charity!

The crops are growing at the greenhouse at Watoto Wema Home in Kenya! Our sustainable greenhouse project is designed to benefit the 57 children who live there, by targeting their nutrition and education. 40% of the veggies grown will go towards supplementing the children’s diets and the other 60% will be sold in the markets. The profits from selling the vegetables will pay for the secondary school fees of the older children. We’re looking forward to the first harvest of these crops!

Good news coming from united-nations: More girls are in school than ever before! And according to unicef, if every child learns to read there will be 171 million less people living in absolute poverty. Our sustainable projects work to generate profits that are used to pay for education for children around the world, like our greenhouses and dairy cows in Kenya & our chicken farm in India. Change, not charity is the key! mdgs.un.org 

“Don’t be content in your life just to do no wrong. Be prepared every day to try to do some good.” -Sir Nicholas Winton Rest in Peace Sir Nicholas Winton, who saved 669 children from the Holocaust. He risked everything to rescue hundreds of children and he did it selflessly, never speaking of his heroic deeds. Sir Winston’s passing last week reminds us of all the good in the world, even in the face of unspeakable tragedy and that one person really can make a difference. http://goo.gl/V0yieW 

What a difference a few years make! This #tbt is from our 2013 trip to setup the aquaponics tilapia farm in Honduras! Since then, the Hogar de Amor home has grown hundreds of tilapia and their tanks are currently filled to the brim with fish. This project saves the home money that they would otherwise spend buying healthy fish and veggies in the market, and they use the money saved to pay for their security guard who keeps the home and children safe, a necessary need in the volatile country. 

Did you know that half of the world’s outsourced IT services come from India? In this technology based society, computer skills are essential, which is why the profits from our income generating chicken farm at Ashirvad Home are designed to provide the children with computers and a teacher along with fresh produce every other day. This is change, not charity, in action! 

A blast from the past! A #tbt to Kitechild’s trip to Kenya in 2012. We loved getting to meet the beautiful children, like this handsome boy from the Good Samaritan Home. Each and every child touched our hearts and taught us so much about Kenyan culture. During that trip, we met with community leaders who helped us assess the most pressing needs and informed our decisions regarding future sustainable projects. We have since successfully launched 9 projects such as solar panels and dairy cows in Kenya. We can’t wait to see what the future holds! 

#TBT to our first trip into the field in 2010, when we visited 4 partner homes in Baja California, Mexico.  Since then, we have met many inspiring children and staff through our visits in the field, partnering with 19 homes in six countries and impacting over 534 children through our sustainable projects!  Shown here is our co-founder, Jacqueline, playing soccer with children at the Casa Hogar Rayitos de Luz home.  Forming these personal connections with the kids is important and drives us as an organization. #getinvolved #inspire #forthekids #makeadifference

Help us raise the other half of our goal for the solar panel installation in the Arias Home of Hope! This orphanage is a safe and loving environment for 39 children who were born with HIV/AIDS, providing them with the medical attention they so desperately need. Because the virus is so highly stigmatized in India, these children were shunned from their families and communities. Our project will help cut the electrical costs for the orphanage, thereby providing additional nutrition essential for the children’s health. Please help us to alleviate the cost for the home and provide a better quality of life for these children! #getinvolved #giveback #makeadifference #socialgood #inspiration #hopeworldwide #india #positivity #sustainable #nutrition #impact #solarpower (at Link in bio. )
