Kenya: Education Center

Minimum Fundraising Commitment: $2,800 including $350 non-refundable deposit

The beautiful country of Kenya is home to over 40 ethnic communities, and known for it’s wildlife that includes lions, leopards, and elephants. This project brings us to the rural area of Kithoka, on the slopes of Mt. Kenya, where we will work with the community to build an education center that will serve the children of the Kithoka Amani Children’s Home (KACH). KACH currently houses 38 orphaned and vulnerable children from the area (ranging in ages 3 - 24 years old). As part of a permaculture farm, the education center will also support women’s initiatives as a place for training.

Surf For Life volunteers will be supporting the local community by assisting in the construction of the education center.
