Please help us understand more about you!

Our Kenyan Kids believes in its partners' ability to make a difference in the lives of children & youth affected by poverty.   Our partners are made up of several groups of people.   

First, there are the folks like you, who give their time and resources to make Our Kenyan Kids a reality.  It all began because someone handed Doug Warren some funds to take with him on his first trip to Kenya.  And from that seed, an entire organization grew.  

Second, there are our partners in Kenya who help us know what is needed, act as our hands and feet 'on the ground' and make the programs happen.  These are the people like Gladwell Ngunjiri at Nairobi Children's Rescue Centre, who, when asked how Doug could put that seed money to its best use, responded that the greatest need was "more people to love the children."    

Third, there are volunteers in Canada who help to put on events, handle the administration of the organization and bring our supporters and Kenyan partners together for the benefit of all.  Please take a few moments to let us know how Our Kenyan Kids fits into your life and what we can do together to make a difference in the life of one more child... and then another... and then another....
