Founded 2010

  • Mission statement

    To improve the quality of life of the world’s poor through the use of knowledge and some finance

    In 2010, we built a well and hand pump, supplied clean drinking water from a protected spring, sponsored orphans and poor children to attend school, introduced solar lanterns to replace the fumes from kerosene lanterns and provided mico finance.

    In 2011 we built a primary school.

    In 2012, we are continuing to expand the school, sponsor children for education, adult education and more sources of clean water.

    The charity has no costs, as all the expenses are donated by the trustees. Thus, 100% of any donation goes to support the works in Kenya.

  • Aims

    Osiligi Charity Projects aims to:

    • To improve the quality of education in the area. The goal is to have children leave primary school with results that are good enough to enter good secondary schools. The charity has built a school.
    • To provide sustainable employment. Most people have no jobs. The aim is to help produce jobs. The charity has enabled some micro-loans and has helped set up two solar lamp rental businesses.
    • To introduce modern technology to solve environmental and health problems. The charity has introduced solar lights to the community, to replace the expense and harm caused by kerosene lamps.
    • To enable all children to attend primary school, regardless of wealth. The charity runs a child sponsor scheme, aimed at orphans, single mothers of families with no income.
    • To provide free sources of clean drinking water. The long term benefit is to improve the health, particularly of young children. The charity is digging wells and protecting springs.
