Chicago Nyumbani


Nyumbani Village is a unique and compelling solution to the next step in dealing with the AIDS crisis in sub-Saharan Africa.

Nyumbani was founded to answer the tough questions: What to do with the survivors… the orphans and the grandparents, who are left destitute with the death of the breadwinners in the family?

Nyumbani has proven to be the answer. We built a bio-friendly and self-sustainable village in a remote part of Kenya for 1,000 orphans and 100 grandparents who have been left behind by the AIDS crisis. The village is part of a larger program that started in 1992 to help those left behind to survive and reintegrate into Kenyan society.

What has Nyumbani done for these kids? Not only has It provided compassion and hope, but it has given these children a good, healthy dose of education, job skills, good nutrition, and most importantly, family for orphans and grandparents that otherwise would face the bleakest of futures without our support.

Nyumbani Village has grown as an education center for surrounding communities, a hotbed of agricultural and bio-fuel innovation, and the only self-sustainable model of its kind in the world. We’ve done the hard work by building the village, but we need that bus so it can succeed, and go further, and you can help us do this. By making a contribution now, you will help support the lives of these children with their basic needs.

Please spread the word, and come and visit us. See what Nyumbani has done over the past 20 years, and see where we are going, and become part of that journey. Our goal is to provide life sustaining opportunities and skills, and an enriching life for children and their families, who have been devastated with AIDS.
