Mission Statement

LDK’s mission is to provide a quality education to the children who are most in need, equipping them not only with practical knowledge and skills, but also with the optimism, open mindedness, and drive to lift their communities out of extreme poverty.


LDK’s work is centered on children, youth and poor families. Over the years Learning and Development Kenya has offered educational programs to the children and youth with the aim of making them become self sustainable and help improve living standards in their respective families. Since its inception, LDK has provided education to more than 11,000 children. Without LDK, these children may not attend school at all, as the government schools - while technically free - have burdensome financial requirements such as required uniforms and desks.

Goals of the program include: provide quality education to children/youth; support poor families to improve on their family income through provision of revolving loans; and implement educational programs on HIV/ADS for the youth to help break down the debilitating stigma associated with HIV/AIDS and create environmental awareness within the communities we work with.

Our projects include a school for children from poor families and a home for orphans since 2003.
