Opportunity through Education


Kiwimbi is focused on creating opportunity through education. One technique we use to accomplish this is our lunch program. In disadvantaged areas of sub-Saharan Africa, children face the harsh reality of trying to learn on empty stomachs. In rural Kenya, kids may walk home at lunch for a meal that isn't guaranteed to be there - while at school they attempt to prepare for exams, which will determine whether they will be able to continue their education to the next level or not. 

Food, which is scarce for some families, is essential to children's growth, development, and progress in school. By providing lunches in addition to educational resources at schools and at our Library, we give kids an opportunity to progress in school and expand their long-term possibilities beyond subsistence farming. Now they can stay at school and use the time and energy saved to focus on learning!

Kiwimbi's lunch program enables students to focus at school - click on one of the links below to learn more about Food for Thought, and to change lives!

All of the proceeds from this event will be used to fund our lunch program, where we provide a daily lunch to nearly 200 students. Food, which may not be available as much to some of the children and their families, is essential to their growth, development, and progress in school.
