Of Kenya’s 44 million residents, 42% live below the poverty line. They struggle to access basic education, healthcare services, clean water and sanitation among other basic life needs. As Kenya’s international affluence increases, the gap been rich and poor grows wider each day. More than half of the nation’s poor are children, whose risks and challenges are extreme.
Thus, the Seed Foundation exists to transform the lives of these vulnerable children in Kenya by providing quality education and restoring each child’s dignity. Founded in 2007, the foundation operates Seed School in the Kibera settlements of Nairobi, where over 100 primary-aged children are served. Seed School also works among the community to teach entrepreneurial skills to those affected by poverty. In addition, the foundation runs a school that works with vulnerable children and adults of Siaya County in western Kenya.
