Kasanda is a remote community near the Burundi border. Most families are farmers, but droughts and outdated farming methods make it hard to produce enough to feed their children. Almost one-third of kids never attend high school.

Sponsorship is helping to tackle three challenges facing children in Kasanda:
1. Families can’t earn enough to provide for their children.
2. Water from unsafe sources makes children sick.
3. Many kids don’t go to school because there aren’t school toilets.


Partnering together for a sustainable future.

By sponsoring children in Kasanda community, you are making an incredible difference in vulnerable children’s lives.

Your support is helping Kasanda community by improving the physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the most vulnerable children.

Through decades of experience, we have proven that the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen their entire community, caring for every child along the way. In fact, because of these community-focused solutions, for every child you sponsor, 4 more benefit too!

Together, we are tackling the hard problems, changing mindsets and behaviours to address the root causes of poverty. We’re focusing on building trust and developing a long-term action plan for Kasanda community.

Mara River crossing

The Great Migration sees over 2 million animals travel across the plains.

Recognised as one of the greatest wonders of the natural world, The Great Migration is the largest overland migration in the world. Over 1.5 million wildebeest, plus hundreds of thousands of zebra, gazelle and other antelope, make their way across the land in search of water and green pasture. 

Undoubtedly, the most exciting part of the journey is the Mara River crossing, where massive herds make their way to the Masai Mara, braving crocodiles and danger at every turn.

While the migration may seem like a chaotic frenzy of movement, research has shown a herd of wildebeest possess what is known as ‘swarm intelligence’, where the wildebeest systematically explore and overcome an obstacle as one.
