Welcome to Makindu!

Makindu Children’s Program is a charitable 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in Eugene, Oregon that supports a day resource facility called Makindu Children’s Centre (MCC) in a rural region of eastern Kenya. The Centre provides for the nutritional and medical needs of hundreds of destitute AIDS orphans and other vulnerable children, as well as access to primary education through high school, psychosocial support, advocacy, and vocational training. The children live in guardian homes in the community, and come to the Centre daily for food, recreation, bathing and laundering facilities, emotional support, and crisis intervention.

World AIDS Day, December 1st: Hope for Makindu

Make the holidays special for Makindu’s children


When shopping for holiday gifts this season, please keep Makindu Children’s Program in mind. There may be people on your list who might truly appreciate having a donation to Makindu made in their name instead of receiving a tangible gift. This is a perfect option for people who “have everything.” This gift will feed, educate, and care for the Makindu children who have so very little.

Thank  you for considering Makindu Children’s Program as a holiday gift idea. May this season of giving bring you joy and happiness.
