Background Information

Kawangware Initiative was founded by caregiver Jane Khadi, whose goal was to provide orphaned and homeless children with a loving home. The centre offers basic necessities alongside education and empowerment programs, featuring a designated space where children can attend their classes. Financial support for the centre's activities is provided by its founders, well-wishers, and a local church.

Kawangware Initiative Centre envisions a brighter future for children and breaking the cycle of poverty. The Children's Centre has fought hard to ensure children under its care access the necessities; however, harsh economic times, climate change, and food insecurity continue impact the centre’s ability to meet all these basic needs.

Kawangware Initiative needs financial support to help meet the basic needs of food, healthcare, clothing, and education for the children.
