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.

Pictured here with his older brother, younger sister and his mother, Emily. His father died when his mother was pregnant with his younger sister. Emily relies on casual work picking tea in one of Limuru’s tea plantations. This is seasonal work and the rest of the time she sells charcoal.  […]

Christmas Challenge

We thank all those who took part in our Christmas Challenge appeal.  We are pleased to say that we were successful in reaching our target which will mean that we will be able to transform even more young lives in Kenya.  The money raised by this appeal will help the very poorest of the poor in Kibra, Nairobi, which is Africa’s biggest slum and where the largest project supported by Karibuni Children is based. During this period donations totalling £5000 were matched pound for pound by pledges already made by an existing group of supporters. 

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.
