  • Macheo Children’s Centre is building desks to support the 21 schools in her Primary School Program. With a lack of resources, classrooms are overcrowded and 3 to 5 children share a desk of 2. Our goal is to provide the children a better learning environment so that they can reach the best of their potential.

    Macheo aims to build 1,000 desks to ease the congestion in these schools.

  • Our mission is to empower and protect vulnerable children so they can lead a bright future and we envision a society where children live happily in a safe, caring and stimulating environment that promotes the best of their potential.

    It can be quite a shock for a young child to move to Macheo Children’s Home. Mwangi’s situation in the slums of Kiandutu was bleak and his demeanor upon arriving reflected that. Our excellent staff, focus on individual needs, and care and support from the other children in the home has truly helped Mwangi progress in just a few short months.

    Thanks to our very supportive community, Mwangi now has sponsor parents to help him on his journey. To find out how to become a sponsor parent visit our Sponsor A Child page

  • Individual Child Development Plan (IDP) is an approach that focuses on a child development process.
    Our objective is to offer an environment that promotes the best of the potential of each individual child, to enable them to become caring and loving partners and parents in the future.
