Title of the project

Adopt a child in Kenya

Place of intervention

Kilifi, Kenya

Description of the context

The poverty rate in the district of Kilifi exceeds 71% of the population (http://www.opendata.go.ke). Among children under 5 years, more than one out of six are underweight (www.indexmundi.com). The density of doctors is less than 1,5 % (0.14 per 1,000 people, www.indexmundi.com ). Only 7.1% of the population of Kilifi has completed secondary school education (www.opendata.go.ke).
In this context, the orphanage “Mwangaza” is located: it is a new building in the area of Kiwandani, which hosts 40 children between the ages of 4 and 18 years old.

The project

The project aims at contributing to the growth of 39 children living in the orphanage of Mwangaza. Thanks to your help, AnlaDi intends on one hand to promote access to education and medical care of these children, and on the other hand to improve their standard of living, supporting financially all the activities of the orphanage. The orphanage is managed by a Pentecostal Priest and a staff composed by 8 mamies and 2 educators.

Achieved results

With your support, AnlaDi can take care of the livelihood of the orphanage, ensuring to 39 children the basic conditions for their growth.From Mid-April 2019, a 15-year-old boy has been lately assigned to Mwangaza. We need to find a sponsor for him as soon as possible.
