Sponsor a child in Kenya

By sponsoring a child on our program in Kenya, you will be giving an orphaned and vulnerable child the opportunity to develop all aspects of their lives. Your sponsorship will not only give a child access to basic life essentials such as regular meals, water, healthcare and education, but it will give them something irreplaceable... hope!

World Youth International works in partnership with the Mango Tree, one of Africa's largest Home Based Care providers working with approximately 8000 children in Tanzania and 5000 in Kenya. Their aim is to provide effective and sustainable programs in African communities which improves the well-being of orphans and vulnerable children and nurtures them to become self reliant adults.

WYI believes that the best way to bring about a change in a child's life is through education and assisting in building a self-sufficient and sustainable environment. The 'Home Based Care Program' re-unites our sponsored children with their guardians and re-integrates them into their local communities. Local staff meet and work with community leaders in the implementation and successful running of all sectors associated with the program. Qualified Social Workers support and manage each individual child with the assistance of the Mango Tree volunteers and the children's respective guardians.
