To everyone who helped us fill our ginormous container full of donated uniforms, books, sanitary pads, furniture and more – THANK YOU. The container left port in November and has safely arrived in Mombasa. We’re hoping it will be delivered to Shikunga before Christmas and we can’t wait to share photos with you all. See if you can spot your donation!
We would like to extend a special thanks to Uniform Exchange, Australian Catholic University, Days for Girls, Holdsworth House and the many friends who have made generous donations to Kenya Aid to support this project.
A huge thanks to Days for Girls for sewing up an amazing 50 kits for our girls in Kenya.
We have some fantastic photos sent by Onesmus recently to update us on the progress of the school building. It looks like things have been getting busy with another two classrooms completed in September. Read More

Exciting news from Shikunga – our permanent classrooms construction project is well underway!
It is a government requirement that we build eight permanent classrooms by the end of 2015 to complete the registration of our school and so far we have almost completed construction on three classrooms.
There’s still five more to go and we need your help to have these completed by the end of the year. As the rainy season sets in it’s even more important that we have quality classrooms built to protect the health of our learners so please consider donating today to help us meet our goal. Every dollar is well and truly appreciated!
June 1 is International Children’s Day and Kenya is still yet to meet its millennium development goal on reducing maternal and child mortality rates.
A news report jointly carried out by KEMRI, the University of Oxford, University of Amsterdam and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has stated that only 12 out of every 100 infants are being tested for HIV at Kenya’s public hospitals. According to the 2015 Economic Survey, the quality of health care in public hospitals is in decline and has caused more deaths in 2014 than in any of the previous five years.
Kenya Aid was thrilled to nab a stall at this year’s Africultures event in March.
Two of our board members – Ryan and Roger – spent the day greeting and eating their way around Africa. Not only was it a fantastic networking event, we raised $700 for Kenya Aid through sales at our stall.
We’d like to thank the organisers for supporting Kenya Aid in their first Africultures experience and we’re looking forward to next year’s event!
