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.

When free primary education was introduced in Kenya some years ago, the children were all able to go to school and continued to be fed at lunchtime. Uniforms and books were provided and the children thrived.  Mercy has been the social worker at […]
