CHAZON AFRICA is a non-governmental organization established in 2007 and registered by the NGOs board of Kenya. The organization’s overall objective is to improve the quality of life in Molo and the counties around it.

Chazon Africa focuses on PROTECTING, EDUCATING, and EMPOWERING.

We also give children from families below the poverty line an opportunity to go to school and empowering their families by engaging them with income-generating activities to help keep their children in school.

We recognise that the barriers to education are complex and interlinked, and our projects focus on a combination of education, child protection and livelihood support to address the social, economic and structural issues that underpin today’s education crisis.

Our three Strategic Key Areas are:

  1. FAMILY EMPOWERMENT AND SOCIAL WELFARE (Agriculture, Chicken Farming, Bags weaving, Needy Children’s support, HIV / Aids, Women and Youths Development, Crediting schemes)
  2. PROTECTION (children’s rescue center)
  3. EDUCATION (Kindergarten, Primary (chazon children’s center), Secondary (sponsorship programs) and Adult Education)
