Change Africa Foundation set up a library at the orphanage/community centre in Kisumu. The children now have a library offering them access to books in support of their education. The community centre also offers the opportunity to discuss issues affecting them in their daily life. Change Africa Foundation have provided the only library in the village.
We need your help
Change Africa Foundation is now providing accommodation, food and care for five orphaned in Kisumu. The children are staying at the orphanage. Change Africa Foundation is seeking donors and sponsors to help us to accept more orphaned children from the community who have nowhere to go.
We have the accommodation space to take on more children however we are lacking the funding to look after them all. We are aware of 85 orphans that could benefit from Change Africa Foundation’s local services in Kenya. We are currently running an appeal for donors to help us save some lives.
If you can help we would really like to hear from you. Please follow this link to our contact form or please make a donation using the Donate button in the side panel.
Computers and Cultural Exchange in Schools.
The schools in the villages we work with around Kisuma are looking for schools in Europe to interact with and to share their culture. The schools are also appealing for used computers. If you have or know anyone that wishes to donate an old computer to a good cause please contact us by following this link.
