Child Sponsor Kenya


Child Sponsorship Kenya


Kenya with its population of 53.77 million (2020) is widely regarded as a stable and peaceful country, however there have been incidents of border issues particularly with Somalia, where Kenya has been keen to broker peace talks against its warring neighbour. Despite this relative stability, the child population of Kenya faces many challenges from widespread poverty affecting more than half of the country, recurring droughts and high levels of crime and unemployment. Kenya is also home to one of the world's largest slums, Kibera, where conditions are particularly atrocious with little or no sanitation and most families living in 12ft by 12Ft metal shacks with no essential services.



Child sponsor programs in Kenya focus on working with orphan and abandoned children, providing practical support such as goats who can supply milk for children and the excess milk can then be sold as an additional source of income together with education, health and water programs. Other work includes the development of new sustainable farming techniques, skill learning such as sewing and carpentry to decrease the reliance on subsistence agriculture and rolling out HIV/AIDS awareness and anti-viral programs. You can help when you sponsor a child in Kenya.
