The Difference We’re Making

Kisumu Children Trust, a small UK charity established in 2002, supports and cares for orphans and severely underprivileged children through education and into a productive vocation, free from charity.

How do we do this?

  • Support severely under-privileged family-based children with nutrition and school uniforms through Primary School
  • Provide a loving home for orphans and other severely deprived children referred by the local authority
  • We promise to provide full support for all our cared-for children through schooling and beyond.

  • We’re helping our children achieve their best at school!

    In Kenya, the Kisumu Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) test takes place at the end of Primary School (typically 14 years old). Our graph here shows that our cared-for children, with our love and support, are achieving better KCPE grades over time.

    Making the Most of Secondary Education

    The career pathways of our over-18s (to date) is shown below. These figures are significant, given these young people are some of the most deprived in an already poor district:

    University Degree and beyond: 7
    College: 22
    Vocational Training: 12
    Employment (including self-employed/own business): 32

    These three young women grew up in the Children’s Home. They have recently enolled in higher education to study, respectively, Supply Chain Management, Land Surveying, and Technical Design.
