"In partnership with our donors, The Kazi Mingi Foundation will provide these children with more than just an opportunity - we will provide them with a future"

Andrea Taylor (Chairperson 1997 - 2011, The Kazi Mingi Foundation)

After an amazing 17 years, the Kazi Mingi Foundation has merged with a like-minded charity, the Rafiki Thabo Foundation. During this time we have seen the construction of a primary and a secondary school in Kenya. Both schools are now at the top of their game in terms of academics and application to their communities. With our supporters’ help, St Bartholomew High School in Voi has supported over 50 boys from very deprived backgrounds and given them the opportunity to continue their education after primary school.

The Rafiki Thabo Foundation was established in 2006 to support bright under privileged students in Kenya, Uganda and Lesotho to attend secondary school and go on to further education in Africa. Their programme in Kenya focuses on Taita Taveta region, including Voi, and they were already also working closely with St Bartholomew High School so the merger feels like a natural next step for the Kazi Mingi Foundation. Our work supporting education in Kenya has not stopped – it has simply reached a new stage where the trustees of KMF will work with the trustees and Director of Rafiki Thabo to continue to provide children in Kenya with with more than just an opportunity - we will provide them with a future.

We will no longer be updating this website. Please visit Rafiki Thabo’s website (www.rafiki-foundation.org.uk) to stay in touch with what we are doing.
