About US

Where We Started

In 2008, the Hands of Love Development Center was founded to offer early childhood care and education to 15 children in Kariobangi – a severely economically disadvantaged community in Nairobi, Kenya.

Why We Started

In Kariobangi, working mothers can not afford adequate daycare. Their options were to leave their young children unattended for 7+ hours/day or drop them at an unlicensed, overcrowded preschool.

Where We Are Now

Hands of Love grew from providing daycare to young children.  As they grew, we added classes and now we provide certified primary school education through standard 2.  We now have a school building where we provide a supportive learning environment to over 180 students.
