FAQs About Kenya Kids Can
• Why a school lunch program and a computer program?
It is our goal to enhance the education of Kenyan students, not to replace what the country of Kenya is already doing with its children. Because of this, we do not provide math teachers, classroom buildings, etc. Instead, we work within the current infrastructure to strengthen it. The school lunch program draws children to school and makes learning possible, as chronically hungry children have a hard time focusing and learning. The computer program teaches skills not currently offered in these schools, and broadens future education and employment options.
• Is Kenya Kids Can a non-profit organization?
In the US, Kenya Kids Can is a project under the umbrella of Africa Inland Mission (AIM) and not a separate entity. AIM is a non-profit organization whose mission is to have Christ-centered churches among all African peoples. In the country of Kenya, KKC has formed a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that handles all of the operations in Kenya.
• Are donations tax-deductible?
Yes. See the Donate page for more information on how to get involved in this way.
• What accountability is there for KKC?
KKC is doubly accountable. First, as a project under AIM, we are accountable to AIM who oversees the finances and progress of the projects. Second, since we have formed an NGO in Kenya, we also are under the oversight of the NGO Co-ordination Board and Kenyan laws here, which require various things such as a yearly audit and compliance with other regulations. This means that financial transactions are reported both to AIM and to the NGO Co-ordination Board.
