We care about children in Kenyan slums to give them an education and life chances

Charity Registration No. 1139880


Could you imagine going through school never holding a text book of your own, relying on your teacher to transcribe to you every word in the text book!  This is how the students at Brainhouse Academy learn – they have never had the privilege of holding their own text book.

No greater gift could be given to the ambitious young street and vulnerable young people who attend Brainhouse academy.  Give them the means to help themselves to a better future.

‘Education is the most powerful weapon that can be used to change the world’  Nelson Mandela


How can you help ?

Please fill a bag with the following:

£5 to buy the specific text books which will be purchased in Kenya to support their specific curriculum needs.

An exercise book

A Pencil and pencil sharpener

A Pen

A small activity/learning toy – weighing no more than 4oz – such as a pack of cards, dominoes, counting games, marbles, skipping rope

Underwear for either a boy or girl


The bags will be distributed to appropriate children by the Headteacher and so all age related donations will be welcome

The money can be donated here and every penny donated will go directly to supporting the education of the 946 young students who attend Brainhouse Academy.  Our charity has no overheads so you really will be making a direct difference.


  • Primary children treasure their exercise book
  • A secondary class ready to learn
