Our facilities

Feeding centre and nursery school

In 2006 we built a new feeding centre and nursery school. This replaced a tin shed classroom and lean-to kitchen off the back of the church.

Our main activity is to support orphans.

We provide

  • education
  • food
  • health care
  • psychosocial support

for more than 50 children on a daily basis. This is done by providing meals for all orphans at lunch and dinner time, paying their school fees and educational needs, providing clothes, monitoring their health and obtaining medical assistance as needed, providing means of sanitation and giving them a loving environment and counselling when needed.

The children return to the homes of their guardians at night.




The women also run an outreach programme for other needy families in the township, providing clothes and other items when available, and keeping an eye out for other destitute children who can be taken care of by Upendo when sponsorship becomes available.

Upendo means love in Kiswahili.





Upendo is a registered charity in the UK (no. 1118312) that supports orphans living in Kilifi District, Kenya.
