Every Moment Counts

Your view of the world may not yet include a community in rural western Kenya where children often walk barefoot for miles to schools that offer little more than desks, a blackboard, and a teacher who lacks resources necessary to enable students to succeed academically. Kiwimbi International, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, is providing children with an opportunity to learn so that they can create a productive life for themselves. We see a world where all people are empowered through education to enrich their lives and reach their fullest potential.

Kiwimbi is comprised of two organizations, a 501(c)(3) in the US and a corresponding NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) in Kenya. We work to enrich the lives of families in sub-Saharan Africa by creating educational opportunities that empower individuals and strengthen the community.

Food for Thought

How does a child learn on an empty stomach? In under-privileged areas of sub-Saharan Africa, kids face this 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.
