Kenya is a country in East Africa with a population of 39 million, 42% of whom are age 0-14 years. The AIDS epidemic has created a disproportionate number of orphaned children in Kenya whose care falls in the hands of guardians who have responsibilities of their own.

The Kenya Chapter of CWEF has been established to assist orphaned children in Kenya. Our focus is currently on Murungaru Primary School which is located in a rural area of the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. The average family income in this rural community is around KSh.2000 (approx.C$30) per month. As a start, it is our aim to support about 60 orphans in this school. $80 per year will help provide the needs of one child in terms of clothing, books and uniforms. We are starting on a small scale but as we grow, we will expand our project to other schools in Africa. Every dollar will bring a smile to a needy child. Let us all aim for a world without hunger and poverty. There is no worthier cause than educating a child in need.

Donated funds are channeled from CWEF and Rotary Club Windsor (1918) to Rotary Club Nakuru in Kenya. The Rotarians of Nakuru help us to monitor the distribution of aid to these orphans, and a dedicated teacher at the school has been assigned to monitor the progress of assisted children.
