Flying Kites provides high quality residential care to Kenya’s most desperate orphaned, homeless and abused children. Our strategy demands that certain basic requirements be met on our site (fertile land, fresh air and clean water) before more complex issues of care and education are addressed through our model. We believe that in order for our children to have a chance to impact this world significantly, the care provided to them must be exemplary.
Flying Kites engages the local community through outreach programs and offers material grants to families caring for orphans, initiatives that deliver agricultural training to subsistence farmers, and hosts workshops designed to empower marginalized women. In order to assess the efficacy of interventions we measure key criteria of all programs, both on site and in the community.
