Cycle of PovertyThe Nadine Griffey Academy of Kenya is a California-based non-profit organization which is dedicated to changing the lives of orphans who live in the terrible slums of Nairobi, Kenya by breaking the cycle of poverty in which they live in on a daily basis. We do this by reaching out and taking an orphan by the hand, holding that hand tight, and moving them into one of three private boarding schools.

This is a wonderful adventure that you can see in living color in our thirty minute documentary entitled “Breaking the Cycle of Poverty.” Please join us and help wherever you can.

  • The Academy serves to address the social and educational needs of children from the impoverished areas of Kenya.
  • Children who are sponsored by the Academy are orphaned or without a close family structure and live in the slums of Nairobi or nearby rural villages.
  • Children will become part of the Academy “family” with a nurturing faculty of educators and supporting staff who will guide them each and every day.
  • Children will be served in private boarding schools close to the Nairobi urban area.

Please help if you can. We are not trying to cure world hunger or end starvation. We are trying to raise money to completely change the lives of as many orphans from the slum areas of Nairobi as funding allows.
