Twiga Children’s Centre is a project that I started with partners in Kenya. With a passion for the issue of AIDS orphans in Africa since I lived in Zimbabwe as a foreign exchange student in 1993 and as a Fulbright Fellow in 1995-96, I started working with a group of 40 orphans in Kisii, Kenya in 2010. In 2011, we finalized paperwork in Nairobi to create an international nonprofit organization. We are now up to 61 children. Support includes: school uniforms, school supplies, gardening tools, vegetable seeds, sewing machine, and food provisions. We also partner with other aid organizations in the United States to provide loans, shoes, and medical supplies.
