we can create a better world through education

Hands of Love is a local initiative, started in 2008 by Indiana-born, Kenyan resident Terry Little, as a place where working families in the low-income residential estate of Kariobangi in Nairobi, Kenya, could leave their children as they went to work. Guided by a belief that every child deserves access to quality education. Our school provides a good learning environment, two meals a day and basic healthcare to about 180 severely disadvantaged children aged 3 - 8.

COVID-19 CRISIS
And our response

There are now (March 15) seven confirmed cases of COVID – 19 in Kenya. Schools have been closed for one month to try and stop the disease before it has a chance to strike what is already a vulnerable population. During this time we continue to make sure that our children – many who depend on the school for a proper meal – have something to eat. So far we have distributed 425kg/937 pounds of rice, 150kg/330 pounds of lentils, 336kg/741 pounds of cornmeal and 90kg/200 pounds of red beans to 101 families. Read More
