An equal opportunity for every child.

Talent and potential are evenly distributed across the world, but opportunity is not. We’re working on changing that one child at a time.

We are the Simama Project.

We empower children and youth in Nanyuki, Kenya to move off the streets and into the classroom by removing the daily barriers to opportunity through our comprehensive “whole child” model of support.

How it works?

It’s not enough to simply pay for a child’s school fees. We help to alleviate the daily challenges children face so they can focus on what’s important: simply being a student.

Community Outreach

We work closely with community leaders to create sustainable, culturally-appropriate solutions to getting kids off of the streets.


It’s hard to learn when you are hungry. Each child receives three full meals per day.


All of our children are offered housing at boarding school or our Transition Home.

Love and Support

Our dedicated social workers and house parents provide the love, medical care and support to help rehabilitate our children off of the streets and reintegrate them into a family environment.


We provide scholarships for all tuition fees, boarding costs and supplies.


Our Center of Worth program pairs a counselor and an older student to every younger student to serve as both mentors and tutors.


We partner with our children’s families to reintegrate the children and to provide them the resources at home needed to be successful in school.
