KCC Unveiled

Our Blog: for Stories worth telling

Kenya Children Centres (KCC) has been supporting disadvantaged children in Kenya for over 20 years.  Through our website, we inform visitors about the work that we do and thought that some additional information would help you understand the need for the work we support.

We invite you to join us on a journey through the complexities and contradictions of Kenya, through the challenges faced by the most impoverished of Kenyans, and through the services that we deliver, to see how your kind donations improve the lives, and prospects, of over 2,000 Kenyan babies and children.

Welcome to ‘KCC Unveiled’, a blog where each story is a call to action and an opportunity to share hope for the future.
