Friends Of Children Kenya provides equal education opportunity to children living in children institutions in Nairobi & Kajiado Counties besides advocating for a family for every child. Friends of Children work with very vulnerable children – orphans and those from very poor families, trying to provide education to them.

Little Reader, Little Musician and Little Math programs were used in a several locations in Nairobi and Kajiado Counties since mid 2015. Caregivers were noting significant progress in children’s ability to read and their participation in music appreciation and literacy lessons.
