Karibu! Welcome!

We are a German non-governmental organisation supporting an orphan”s village in Kenya. We invite you to get to know the children and the village on our website. Please take a look on our work for the children.

The orphange is located in Ukunda, about 30 km south of Mombasa near the popular holiday area of Diani Beach. Our goal is to provide the children a permanent and lovingly home, good education and to prepare them for a self-dependent life.

You are interested in the UPENDO Children”s Village or our organisation and want to support the children? On the following pages we introduce you to the kids, the village and the project. If you wish to learn more we are glad to answer your questions in person.


Our Vision:

We show socially disadvantaged young people in Kenya perspectives. We accompany them on their way and motivate them to shape their own future. We at UPENDO Children’s Village convey values such as charity, honesty, gratitude, respect, and a sense of responsibility in a family environment with role models. Our goal is to enable the UPENDO community to live a self-determined and secure life. With our commitment we contribute to the long-term positive support of Kenya’s society.
