OUR AIM IS TO EDUCATE AND FEED  DEPRIVED CHILDREN in kenya

 would you like to HELP US DO THIS?

 

THE NEED  

There are many under-privileged and often malnourished young children of all ages in Kenya. They spend their time helping their parents earn a meager living or begging and scrounging for food. Often children have no parents due to AIDS or other problems.

Going to school is simply not an option. And without education these children and their families cannot break the poverty cycle. The result is that disease and destitution continue for another generation.

the sOLUTION

KES school was started so that disadvantaged children can to go to school and be adequately fed so they can concentrate in class. It is situated in Likoni which is an outer suburb in southern Mombasa with a large slum area where there are many children of all ages who cannot attend school. 

KES is having an amazing impact on the children lucky enough to attend, but it is only touching the tip of the iceberg.

be part of the solution

The local Kenyan people who started KES are desperate to grow their school but without your help they don’t have the financial resources to enable them to do this.

Sponsoring a child costs $NZ 300 per year / 85 cents per day or $US 200 per year / 55 cents per day. 

who are we?

The key person in our story is Noah Mweruphe who lives in Likoni.   

Noah has first-hand experience of what it is like to be brought up as a seriously deprived child in Kenya. You can read about Noah’s life in his own words here.

In 1992 Merle and Tony Ryburn, who live in New Zealand, sponsored Noah as a young lad to attend school. They sponsored Noah through a charity and later they privately funded him through university after which he became a qualified teacher. 

Twenty years later in 2013 Noah set up KES school for underprivileged children with the help of other local Kenyans and Merle and Tony.
