Kuhenza for the Children’s Foundation is a non-profit organization that exists to meet the needs of children living with disabilities in Kilifi County along the Coast of Kenya. Ultimately, the goal is that these children along with their families and communities understand that they have value and are deserving of love and acceptance.
Kuhenza meets this vision through advocacy, sponsorship of school fees, medical intervention and construction of special needs facilities.
Kuhenza serves children with Cerebral Palsy, Hearing impairments, intellectual challenges, Visual Impairments, Motor impairments, Down syndrome, Autism, Epilepsy and Spina bifida and other disabilities. Majority of the people in this County still view these children as being cursed by God or bewitched and hold negative attitudes towards these children.
Kuhenza is an affiliate organization of Kupenda for the Children, a U.S. nonprofit organization. Kupenda and Kuhenza work side-by-side in all strategic planning and program implementation tasks, including the hire and training of qualified staff and Board members who lead the organizations’ work.
