Our mission

Stichting Maendeleo is a Dutch foundation dedicated to promoting self-reliance among underprivileged children and young adults. Our mission is to create an enabling environment for individuals to improve their living conditions permanently and sustainably, benefittingv themselves, their families, and their communities. We achieve this by partnering with small local projects in education and empowerment in the coastal provinces of Mombasa and Kilifi in Kenya.

What we do

Through various projects, we support handicapped children and HIV positive mothers and fathers and their children. We help individual children to get education on all levels. And we contribute to various shamba projects (a shamba is a vegetable garden). Stichting Maendeleo also actively promotes cooperation between organizations sharing similar aims. And helps them sharing locally relevant knowledge.
