About Jacaranda Kids
Jacaranda Kids seeks to provide children living in the slums of Nairobi with educational and spiritual opportunity. Our hope is to see the miracle of transformation in a new generation that will break the cycle of poverty and hopelessness.
Jacaranda Kids was started by Garry and Brenda Kean when they reached out to friends to help them sponsor 4 boys. Then after Jacaranda Creations started, 17 more children were sponsored and affectionately called "Jacaranda Kids".
The overwhelming need to reach more children resulted in developing a US/Canada and Kenya team to help oversee all the aspects of the Jacaranda Kids program which is caring for children in some of the poorest slum communities in the city. They have developed an incredible team of people who are visiting the homes and schools of the children and attending to their needs holistically.

Love in Action = Partnership
There are others way you can donate. Children living in poverty all over the city are often sent home from school because they lack the basic school necessities. That is why we created our program "Gift a Child With...". Jacaranda Creations women are making the backpacks, sweaters and uniforms. Your gift not only helps a child it supports a mother!
