Kenya Children's Fund Seeks to Transform the Lives of Kenya's Impoverished Children
KCF seeks to transform the lives of Kenya’s impoverished children by raising up servant leaders and providing life’s basic necessities including nutrition, medical care and education in a Christ centered environment. Our children flourish under the nurturing care of African professionals committed to imparting faith-based principles to children in the most important time of life: the formative years from preschool to university. Armed with an education, these young men and women will return to their communities to serve as change agents in every sector of society. Change will come to Africa in the 21st century…one child at a time.
Enabling the Children of Kenya: Primary Education
The current President/CEO, Ginger Palm, has carried the mission to change the futures of these children by expanding the Primary School's outreach, and later adding a Secondary School to the program. Under her leadership, KDS has over 53 students in universities and other post secondary schools throughout Kenya.
Currently, KDS has more than 800 students enrolled in pre-school, primary and secondary school classes with 53 more students preparing for and attending universities, colleges and technical schools throughout Kenya. Academically, KDS is one of the top schools in its district and our students often win local music and sports competitions. Kinyago-Dandora School was declared the “Best Overall Community School” out of 35 schools in their school district.
KDS also strives to serve the community of Kinyago-Dandora through health care (AIDS awareness, family planning, etc.) and spiritual health programs in the evenings. Additionally, St. Stephen’s Anglican Church uses the school dining hall on Sunday mornings to conduct services in English and Swahili for more than 400 people in the community.
Enabling the Children of Kenya: Secondary Education and Beyond
Kenya Children’s Fund is completing construction of the Secondary School facilities. We currently have approximately 250 secondary students enrolled and in February of 2010 the first graduating class of KDS went out equipped for further opportunities. It is our policy to help graduating students to continue their studies at Christian institutions such as Daystar University or enable them to learn professional skills in a quality trade school.
