Who We are

Empowered Families, Thriving Children

We are a government registered organization called Kijiji Cha Upendo (Swahili for “Village of Love”) Children’s Project*. We enhance the capacity of guardians caring for orphaned and abandoned children within their own loving families, so that they can give their children a better future through the provision of food and education.

Currently, Kijiji Cha Upendo embraces 75 families that together care for 500 children. We operate in Kibera, one of Africa’s largest slums.

  • EMPOWER both guardians and children to become self sustaining.
