It all started at Wendy’s in 2004…

…when a small group of friends expressed their shared concern about the lack of educational opportunities for children in Kilifi.

We set up a small committee and began paying fees for one or two children.

In 2008, Rotary International approached us to help administer their sponsorship programme and pledged support for 50 secondary students over the next 4 years.

That meant a doubling of our beneficiaries at that time which was quite a leap to take. We took it and never looked back!

And then moved to Jacob’s in 2012…

… to an open plan, breezy office in the centre of Kilifi Town. It’s accessible to all our students and where our team love to work.

Then in 2014 Kesho Kenya began a new phase of growth

With Evans Odhiambo appointed as the new Director, Kesho has gone from strength to strength.

Zena Salim, one of the original Co-Founders present at Wendy’s over 10 years ago, is still on the Kesho Kenya board and the other Co-Founder is now Chair of Kesho UK board; they remain best of friends.
