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.

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. 

British 10K 2018 – almost £4,500 raised!

A record field of 13 Karibuni runners pounded the streets of London in the British 10K raising almost £4,500 for Karibuni Children! The British 10K follows a route through the centre of London, including Piccadilly, Trafalgar Square and The Strand. It was a very warm Sunday in July and after the run participants met up with Karibuni Trustees for drinks and to receive certificates from Karibuni. The photographs show some of the runners, which included a strong Kenyan contingent. We’ll need even more runners next year if we’re to beat the amount raised this year and continue to make a […]

LATEST! Rowan Purrett, aged twelve, Peak to Peak fundraiser – 73 out of 79 done, only 5 more to go!

One of the most unusual and demanding ongoing fund raising events is Peak a Week.  Rowan Purrett, aged twelve, lives on Skye. He is a keen walker and has committed to raise money for Karibuni Children by climbing 79 Scottish peaks in 79 weeks.  Rowan started on his 11th birthday in September 2017 and has now climbed 73 peaks, each one 2,000 feet plus high.  His plan is to complete the challenge by climbing Ben Nevis (4,400 feet) on 24th March 2019 when he will probably need to use crampons for the final ascent.
