About Team Kenya

Team Kenya is a small charity based in Brighton, run entirely by volunteers. It has a long standing partnership with the Luo tribe in Ndhiwa, Kenya. Every pound donated goes directly towards the people of Ndhiwa. The facts: 40 years is the average life expectancy. 63% of the community lives in extreme poverty. Maternal and child health is very poor. Malaria, typhoid & TB are widespread. Ndhiwa currently has the highest HIV/AIDS rate in Kenya.

What does Team Kenya do?

Team Kenya has three areas of focus: Girl and Women empowerment, Education and Entrepreneurship. Team Kenya is taking practical action that enables girls and women in Ndhiwa to fulfil their potential. It sponsors the education of students in Western Kenya to help provide a better future for themselves and their community.

Entrepreneurship is one of the most effective forms of local development and addresses the root cause of poverty, says Charlotte at Team Kenya.
