Description

The MACHAO Orphanage Foundation supports over 40 children located in Makueni County, Kenya. These children have all faced various hardships, though most of them have come to the organization due to the AIDs pandemic in Kenya. Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty for these children by providing them with the tools and materials they need to live healthy and successful lives.


Each summer we bring the students back packs filled with important hygiene supplies such as deodorant, soap, tooth brushes, and toothpaste. We also make sure to bring them puzzles, books, and jump ropes for active bodies and minds. For our Volunteer Day Part 1, we invite members of the community to join us in organizing, sorting, and preparing the backpacks for these children. We will also have personalized boxes that you can decorate yourself for a special child!


We welcome all ages, large groups, and anyone seeking service hours. The event will take place Saturday, May 19th, from 10 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and refreshments will be provided.
