Welcome to Karibuni Children!

Karibuni Children is a UK Registered Charity. We aim to raise awareness about the plight of children living on the streets and in the slums in areas of urban and rural poverty in Kenya; and to raise money to support projects to meet their needs.
We are conscious of the importance of tight governance, so Trustees visit all our largest projects annually; we require annual budgets and regular reporting throughout the year; we have a local representative who works with the projects throughout the year.

From every £1 of income we receive around 90 pence goes directly towards helping the children we support in Kenya. 

Karibuni has one paid member of staff and several hard working volunteers in the UK so apart from a modest amount spent on office expenses, all the money raised and donated is used to support the work in the projects.


You can help our cause by buying products in our online shop or perhaps sending a charity gift. Last date for Christmas deliver is the 18 December.  […]

Peak a Week COMPLETE! Rowan Purrett, aged twelve, Peak to Peak fundraiser

MASSIVE congratulations and thank you to 12 year old Rowan Purrett who on 16th March 2019 completed his 79 Peaks in 79 Weeks challenge for Karibuni.  He began on his 11th birthday (September 2017) and the peaks had to be a Graham, Corbett or Munro.  The final peak was 765m high Sgurr Beag and was a big challenge because of the snowy conditions. This is a unique achievement and we at Karibuni Children are most grateful to Rowan and his parents for choosing to raise funds to support our work amongst the poorest of the poor in Kenya.
