Geographic areas served: Kenya

Programs: At our home, on a small farm in Central Kenya, we provide exemplary care to children who would otherwise have nowhere to turn.  Our emphasis on family homes and a competitive education allows orphaned and abused children to heal, grow and discover their potential. 

In the wider community, we work to ensure that the majority of orphaned children stay where they belong: living and learning within their own family networks.  Our outreach initiatives provide families caring for orphaned children with opportunities for scholarships, income-generating activities, micro-loans and employment.

Flying Kites was started when a little boy living in an overcrowded orphanage in the slums of Nairobi challenged a small group of volunteers to see him as a child, and not as an orphan. Orphans need bowls of rice.  Children need families, people to invest in the quality of their education and the possibility of their dreams.  They need nourishment and inspiration and adventure and security; they need to be shown that the world cares about who they are and who they will become.

Mission:
Flying Kites empowers orphaned children by providing the care, inspiration and education they need to succeed in, and contribute to, a complex and changing world.
