The Good Life Orphanage provides a safe and secure home for orphaned and abandoned children in the Kikambala area of Kenya.
On a trip to a local school whilst on a family holiday in Kenya, the founders of the charity were struck by two things: the smiling happy nature of the kids and the unbelievable poverty. So, cutting a very, very long story short, a year later they flew back out with £42,000 in raised funds from extremely generous friends and family and 18 big-hearted workers and rebuilt the dilapidated school.
The process was so rewarding and the children so happy and grateful, (some queuing up hours before the school opened just to get sitting in their new classrooms), they decided to take on a further venture and build the Good Life Orphanage.
The aim was simple; create a charity where all funds raised go directly to keeping children happy and healthy. No administration, travel or accommodation fees. 100% charity.
Since it opened in April 2008 over 50 children have discovered the security of having a place where they call home. They now receive three meals every day, are educated and most importantly are shown the love and care they deserve.
They desperately need financial support to provide the monthly food, education and medical costs to keep the orphanage ticking over and continue to give these children a better life.
