One Heart is a not-for-profit foundation that was established in 2007 out of Australia and working in Kenya. One Heart’s primary focus is to change the future of orphaned and abandoned children living in poverty in Kenya, and in turn see whole communities transformed through education, leadership, empowerment and most importantly – love.
We now care for 75 children in three homes and have recently opened our first primary school, as well as a skills training centre to help better equip the surrounding community in health, business and life skills training.We have set a series of goals to impact on a wide variety of people, all aimed at improving the living conditions and future of the next generation.
Our goals are:
to provide hope for a new future to unlock the potential within orphans…we do this by establishing schools and children’s boarding homes that provide a loving family environment and an education where the children can be raised and nurtured.
to provide nutritional food to children that would otherwise go hungry…we do this by establishing a large farm to generate fruit and vegetables to feed our children and assist the local community.
to break the cycle of poverty that prevents parents from providing for their own children…we do this by providing training and small business funding to empower parents to help themselves.
to create an environmentally, financially and socially sustainable village where children can flourish for generations to come.
All our initiatives in Kenya are designed to break the aid-dependence cycle so recipients no longer have to rely on hand outs…so they can stand on their own two feet and walk into their future with dignity and confidence, free from poverty, persecution, fear and oppression and have the resources to raise the next generation.
