Who We Are

Uzima Aid is a leading Kenya based independent Trust that is creating permanent change in the lives of children. Uzima Aid is improving the welfare of children by providing vulnerable and malnourished children in the slums (informal settlements) and those in arid areas with fortified food and clean drinking water. With the assistance of partners, we also build and rehabilitate dilapidated toilets in poor overcrowded schools.

Our Approach

Our holistic approach to the wellbeing of the African child makes us reach out to partners who would want to be part of the story of the transformation of poor and vulnerable children.Be it through School Gardening and pitching of Greenhouses to mitigate food security, to sinking and digging of boreholes and wells, to donating computers for E-learning purposes, to building computer laboratories and toilet facilities, to supporting Camps and Sports activities, Uzima Aid is proving to be the voice of the voiceless African child and is giving its esteemed partners (individuals, organizations, corporates and governments) the platform to change the life of a needy child. Uzima is a Swahili word meaning life. Uzima also means wellness and vitality.

Crèche Makeover Initiative

Uzima Aid is seeking to pull resources from donors and well-wishers to do a makeover of dilapidated learning facilities of Kindergartens in Kenya. We are targeting Kindergartens that are found in the slums (Informal Settlements) and in poor neighbourhoods. Children in these backgrounds suffer most as they are exposed to diseases, neglect and abuse.

Statistics from World Health Organization show that the mortality rate of children who are exposed to unhygienic environments in Africa is shockingly high and the most affected are children under seven years.

The Crèche MAKEOVER Initiative is targeting children between ages three to seven. These formative years of children are crucial for general developmental and psychological growth

Crèche MAKEOVER of Agape School

Through this “Crèche MAKEOVER of Agape School” initiative Uzima Aid is seeking to pull resources from donors and well-wishers to do a makeover of dilapidated learning facilities at Agape School for the kindergarten children in the school.This project is targeting children between ages three to seven. These formative years of children are crucial for general developmental and psychological growth.

Agape School is a poor Junior / Primary school located in Kemera in Nyamira County in Western Kenya. On humanitarian basis Agape School has taken in many orphans and vulnerable children who learn for free. The school fees charged by the management of the school for the other students is heavily subsidized to makes it possible for poor children living in Kemera and the neighbourhood to access learning.

The school’s facilities are dilapidated hence the need for an extreme makeover.
