What is Makungu?

“Makungu” is a non-profit project in Kenya. It is supported by the non-profit organizations “Makungu-Waweru” in Kenya and “Makungu e.V.” in Germany.

“Makungu” was created out of the desire to help the orphanage „Care Home“. The children were kicked out of their home and the former founder abandoned the children in the summer of 2016.

In July 2017, after several months of hard work, worrying and fighting for the future of these children, we’ve finally found a new home for them. After these first steps towards a better future, it is our goal to find a long- term solution for these childrens’ future. We want them to have a chance to start over and to have a home where they can grow up, feel safe, study and learn how to create better conditions for themselves and their community.

Makungu is a Swahili word that means “dawn”. It is a metaphor for hope, chances and new beginnings which come again and again.
