Since 1999, We Charity has been operating in the Narok South District, building schools, libraries, water projects, latrines, kitchens and teachers’ accommodations. The severe drought due to climate change has threatened communities with failed crops and massive water shortages. The DMF joined forces to fund drought relief projects. While the drought threat continues to loom, water-catchment systems for more than 25,000 people were developed to counteract the threat.

In the Narok South District, one in ten children still die before their fifth birthday and one third of children under five are stunted due to chronic malnutrition.
A nutrition program was developed to provide wholesome meals to students, pregnant or nursing mothers, and young children suffering from malnutrition. With the support of the Foundation, WE serves 6,000 school students and approximately 3,500 others.

The young women from across the Maasai Mara who attend the Kisaruni Girls Secondary School are passionate about learning, determined to pursue higher education and committed to becoming a generation of women who will lead change in their communities. The Ngulot Boys High School opened in January 2017 and now educates 33 of the brightest and most deserving boys in the Maasai Mara. Ngulot means strength in Swahili.
The change starts within each one of us. And ends only when all children are free to be children ~ Craig Kielburger, Co-Founder of WE Charity
The wealth of a soul is measured by how much it can feel … its poverty by how little…~ Sherrilyn Kenyon
