Kenya Orphans and Education Support
Since 2012, WBS has been supporting orphans and youth from the slums though our Kenyan partners, Ben and Christine Mutoka. Ben and Christine, along with their children, live in Kitale, which is located in the South West region of the Country. Through their organization they care for over 500 orphaned and needy children in the region. Warm Blankets Switzerland partners with Ben and Christine to provide a quality education for these children. The majority of our support in Kenya is for the salaries of the teachers at the local secondary school where the children attend. We partnered with Ben and Christian to see the school constructed and furnished, toilets installed, to set up the computer lab and bring some specialty training in the areas of health and hygiene. We also partner with them through our annual trips to bring medical support, oral hygiene training, financial management training and general support for the staff at the school.
The following short movie gives an overview of Warm Blankets most recent service trip to Kenya.
