The Kenya Aid story

Kenya Aid was established in 2006 by a group of young Australians committed to fighting the causes of poverty in Western Kenya. Since then, we have grown our programs to encompass a hospital, ambulance service, a school, and numerous community education programs that aim to compassionately and sustainably improve health and education outcomes in rural Western Kenya.
