The Makuyu Education Initiative is located in the village of Makuyu, Kenya, and committed to helping underprivileged children escape the vicious cycle of poverty by providing a quality education, free meals to help fight malnutrition, access to health care, and a safe and loving place to stay. This initiative is local, accountable, direct and efficient. 100% of our donations go directly to the benefit of the children in Kenya.
Right now, our biggest challenge is finding a place of our own. Through the years we've been leasing land from a landlady whose been threatening to evict us. As a result, we've decided to purchase a small plot of land to build a place that we can call our own. We are hoping to raise about $80,000 in the next 6-8 months for construction. We invite you to browse our website, learn more about the children, and donate if you find it within your heart and wallet to do so.
Any remaining funds will be used for the benefit of the children (e.g. school supplies, meals, uniforms, etc.).
