  • Mission statement

    Mustard Seed Project is a small grass roots charity empowering a slum community in Mombasa to lift itself out of poverty by getting the residents to take responsibility for their lives and community.

    Our small Kenyan charity is currently providing education for 150 poor children and orphans in an urban slum. We have a feeding programme providing porridge and a balanced midday meal. We now have land, our school is now full to bursting, so we deperately need to build our own school to house 11 classes of children from 3 to 14 years old in classes of 25. We aim to provide for the poor the sort of excellent education only available to the very rich and to make it sustainable.

    We shall have a small clinic in the school which will be available to our children, their siblings and their mothers. This will provide vaccinations, preventative medicine, first-aid, ante-natal classes and family planning. The games hall in our school will be accessible in the evenings for the community.

    Our grassroots charity is also providing adult education including computer skills. We are supporting the youth through sport including two football teams and a boxing club and are giving them skills for work. We have also given health training and business training to women. We have dug a well and provided mosquito nets for every family in the community which has hugely reduced the incidence of Malaria and water-borne disease. We shall soon have a functioning library.
