Flying Kites

Organization Description: 

Flying Kites is an organization concerned with helping vulnerable children around the world. Currently, we are building a home for abandoned, abused and orphaned children in Kenya. Located at the foot of the Aberdares Mountains, our new ten-acre farm has become home to many children in need.

As an organization providing for children from such desperate circumstances, we define ourselves by the level of care we deliver. As an organization that recognizes the larger structural inequalities that create such desperate circumstances, we engage the local and global communities.
