The Baobab School
Growth through love and learning

Today the charity runs the Baobab Nursery School and Feeding Programme for over 90 young children, age 3-6, in a poor district near Nairobi. This project started in 2008 with 15 children in a small cowshed – We now have as purpose built school with three classrooms a kitchen and an office.

All the children come from the poorest backgrounds – many have no immediate family at all. Many people in the local village have no education or jobs and live in one small hut without running water, sanitation and little or no regular food.

At the Baobab the children start the day with hot chocolate and bread and at midday they receive a warm nutritious meal. The teaching and care are of a high standard, such that our “Baobabs” are much sought after by the local Primary Schools – they also have the uniforms, shoes and books required to enter the Kenyan education system – an opportunity denied to many of the poorest children. 

The aim of the Baobab Nursery School is to give the children the chance at an early age to have a life of hope and positive opportunity and to be able to make a meaningful contribution to the future prosperity of their families and country. It’s a dream which has come true for many of our children as the individual stories show.
