Hands Up! Education in Action

Providing education to vulnerable children in Kenya since 2009

Hands Up! are working towards becoming a trauma-informed charity project. We provide education to vulnerable children aged 4-16 in Kenya through outreach in the following areas:

  • Academic Support
  • Counselling and Guidance
  • Life Skills

We have built long-lasting relationships with our outreach project sites, which include a juvenile remand home, a school based in a slum, and two street child centres. We have a wonderful team of 6 local staff who deliver our services year-round.

We pride ourselves in hitting our objectives by keeping our running costs as low as possible... we do not pay any UK staff or fundraisers, meaning every penny donated to Hands Up goes directly to funding the projects in Kenya.

Please read more about why we do what we do by following 'our story', learn more about our outreach project sites by following 'Kenya', and find out ways you can help us continue to make a difference by following the link to 'support us'.
