Thank you for donating money that you would otherwise give as a birthday present to Kipepeo Foundation for disadvantaged children in Kenya

Hello! Thank you for celebrating our joint birthday with us.

We have been running Kipepeo Foundation in Kenya since our first visit in 2006.

What we do? We support academic and sports activities for orphans and underprivileged children in Kenya. 

This means :- 

  • financial support for individual children
  • improvement of learning conditions, supporting schools  
  • libraries and sports clubs for disadvantaged children, 130 children play in our football club instead of spending their days on the street 

We operate in the Likoni slum outside Mombasa. 

We work with the local community and we only sponsor projects that are started and managed by Kenyans themselves. At the same time, we try to ensure that our projects help not only children, but also give jobs to locals and thus help their families.

Over £200 million has been raised from our crowd to support the projects they love! Plus tens of millions more unlocked by our partners.
