Kenya

My first visit to Kenya was in 1993, several years before Eagles Wings was formed as a charity. This was my first experience of Africa, and it cultivated in me a deep love and affection for the Kenyan people.

Having made over 30 separate visits from the UK to villages and towns all over the country, we have been able to develop friendships and relationships of trust, that are so essential in the delivery of aid and establishing good projects.

Over nine years ago, Eagles Wings successfully built its first home for girls in Elburgon, in the Rift Valley region with our long term friend, Bishop Mark Kariuki, The girls had previously been living in a rambling slum area called Kasarani and needed rescue from unstable, unsafe and abusive living conditions. 40 girls were carefully selected by village elders and community leaders, as being the most vulnerable, and were transferred to the completed home in 2004.

Committed to long term partnership and the desire for each project to be self sufficient, Eagles Wings bought 5 acres of farmland near to the girls home, which is the source of fresh maize, potatoes, carrots, kale and beans for the girls and staff, and fodder for goats and cows. The land has potential for additional cash crops and a study is in progress to put up greenhouses to grow tomatoes for sale. The Elburgon Girls Home in Kenya has become the flagship of Eagles Wings’ endeavours over the last 10 years.

After the tribal clashes of 2008, Eagles Wings was able to respond quickly with the supply of emergency aid: blankets, food, cooking oil, stoves and tents - to help the thousands of families who were displaced, and lost almost everything they had. With ‘on the ground’ feedback by mobile phone from the IDP camps, and through trusted community leaders already known to us, our aid became a life saver to families living in Kericho, Kapsabet, Kiambaa (Burnt Forest), Eldoret and Nakuru.

Each visit to Kenya opens up new areas of opportunity to target specific aid to the most needy, particularly those who attend clinics and hospitals. A small amount goes such a long way and Eagles Wings has provided medical assistance to Kericho district and Elburgon town hospitals. Donations from local pharmacies, GP practices and hospitals in the UK are greatly valued.

Eagles Wings is pro-active in localities where the larger NGOs generally do not visit but where we can be sure that the funds and projects are managed within our guidelines. The charity is always looking for new ideas to improve self sufficiency and income generation through local employment.
