A few information about
The Twiga Foundation was founded in 2013 by Daniphord Mwajah, a social worker with a big heart for people in need. The organization has been engaging in several programs including secondary school youth programs and business training for marginalized women as well as providing the women with small business loans. In 2017 Daniphord, along with other members of the Twiga Foundation, established a day care center called KHM. Since kindergarten and day care is not government funded, parents have to pay if they want their children to have some education before they start primary school. This leads to inequality since some children start school and know how to read, write and do simple mathematics while others don’t have that opportunity. This is where Daniphord wanted to step in and help children from less fortune families break through the cycle of poverty.
In the beginning the project started with only five children and has since grown to 150 children, divided into two classes in the school and three in the daycare with eight teachers in total. All the children are aged between two and six years. Furthermore, every child attending gets a daily meal at the project.
The kindergarten is located in the same area as our volunteer hostel and can be reached within 20 minutes of walking.
