The Kimilili Trust

We aim to help the people of the Kimilili area in Western Province, Kenya, improve the quality of life of their children. We work with local people on school building and improvement projects and projects to help the very poor.

We are currently working with the people of a very poor community to start building a secondary school for their girls. The local mixed secondary school has become "boys only" leaving the girls with a walk of around 14 km to their nearest school. The parents have acquired land and are in the process of registering it. When that has been done we will help them put up some buildings. They will provide the bricks, the timber and some labour. We will provide expert help and funds to buy windows, cement, paint etc.

We also have a project where we lend three chickens to very poor families. When eggs hatch the family repays us with three hatchlings which we grow on and lend to another family. This project is supervised by a local retired vet who provides training in elementary chicken care. Some families have used this as a springboard to becoming chicken farmers and one family has moved on to sheep and goats.
