Food For Thought

A major part of Kiwimbi’s work is our lunch program

Kiwimbi works to provide lunch at school for kids studying for the national exam. That’s why we started our monthly giving program called Food for Thought:

• Kids can’t learn on an empty stomach

• Rural Kenyan schools do not provide lunch

• Often families have no food when kids come home mid-day to eat, especially before crops come in

Your commitment to monthly giving helps guarantee a steady source of food, making all the difference in the world for these kids!

A gift of just $25 a month will assure that two children eat a solid meal every day of the year!

How does a child learn on an empty stomach?
In under-priveleged areas of sub-Saharan Africa, kids face that issue daily. In rural Kenya, these kids, some of whom live miles from school, typically walk home at lunch for a meal that may or may not be there – while at school they try to prepare for high-stakes exams that determine if they will continue with their education after Grade 8.
Kiwimbi supports the efforts of these children in a number of ways. Here is a video about the work Kiwimbi is doing and the lives we impact:

I’m in ~ Can’t Wait to Help these Kids!

A key component of our work is geared towards children trying to prepare for the national exams. Their schools are so under-resourced that local children are unlikely to pass. By providing lunch as well as educational resources in school and at our Library, we give kids an opportunity to progress in school and expand their long-term prospects beyond subsistence farming.

The great news is that it is easy for you to make a difference by helping these kids stay at school! 

Just join our Food for Thought monthly giving campaign. Lunches are needed year round, so monthly giving is a great way to commit to the program. Just click on the Donate Now button to make it happen.

Either way, thank you for helping – you will change the life of a child forever. Kiwimbi takes care of the logistics; we need you to make it happen!
