The Makuyu Education Initiative operates in the village of Makuyu in Kenya. Our center is committed to take care of the children at our children's home and sponsoring them to attend a local school. We also provide the children with access to healthcare, nutritious meals, tutoring, and other essentials that help improve their lives. Founded in 2011, our school provides these children with a free meal every day to help fight malnutrition, gives them an incentive to attend class regularly, and ensures they do not learn on an empty stomach. Our initiative is local, accountable, direct, and efficient. We have a small, dedicated staff in the United States whose members do not receive salary. All donations go directly to the school for providing meals, paying teacher salaries, or buying educational materials.
