The Shamba Foundation
The Shamba Foundation strives to promote sponsorships to feed, clothe, house, and education children of Kenya; providing opportunities for self-reliance, optimism, and a hopeful future.
The SHAMBA Foundation offers the community the opportunity to sponsor or donate to the children of a specific orphanage and school. We work directly with Steven Kyalo (Head of Africa Operations: Hope of Africa Children’s Home). Prior to the organization of the foundation, Steven housed and supported approximately 80+ children in his orphanage on whatever income he could manage through his personal occupation as a wood-carver. They have recently been able to upgrade their living conditions to a location with cement floors rather than dirt due to the donations of others. In a single pan, they cook over an open flame. The orphanage has no running water. They are located in the Soweto Slum in Nairobi, Kenya. The short-term goal of United in the Hope of Africa and The SHAMBA Foundation, as a funding organization, is to sustain life on basic necessities and a formal education. Education is the most promising opportunity for the children to achieve their dreams in the future. The long-term goal is to raise the funds that will provide a location outside the slums into an environment that will provide the opportunity for employment, self-reliance, and a hopeful future.
