THE LUNCHBOWL NETWORK WAS SET UP IN 2006 IN RESPONSE TO THE PLIGHT OF THE ORPHANED AND VULNERABLE CHILDREN LIVING IN KIBERA, NAIROBI.
Since then we have provided funding for a dinner programme for 450 orphaned and vulnerable children, 2 kindergartens and a primary school. These children endure the harsh reality of life in Kibera including lack of access to clean water, very poor sanitation compounded by an inadequate education that causes them to be severely disadvantaged. The children in the programme have been selected because of their vulnerability and high need and rely upon the nutrition that is provided daily by The Lunchbowl Network.
We are all volunteers in the UK and the only salaried workers are our teachers and support workers in Nairobi, so every penny donated and raised goes directly to where it is needed.
