Wisdom School


Our Wisdom school project started thanks to a meeting with Tom, a 28 years old man who grew up in the orphanage GOD OUR FATHER in Watamu. It was our first trip to Kenya.

One day Tom told us about the WISDOM SCHOOL in the Jimba village in Watamu and so went visiting it. We saw a school made of mud and straw, unusable when it’s raining and close to fall down.

But Agnes, the founder and the teacher of the school never gave up and doesn’t matter what she always wanted to give her 40 students the possibility of an instruction. From that moment; we felt the desire to help them, and once we came back home we started to really work to raise funds thanks to markets, dinners and shows.

Thanks to this, now the Wisdom School has two real rooms with actual walls and we count on finishing the third one by the end of the year. Unfortunately; the things left to be done are still quite a lot; we are still missing more rooms, bathrooms, the fences and we need to fix the courtyard.

It is not easy, but slowly, brick by brick and thanks to the help of many people, we are sure that one day we will make it, and we will terminate this project.

Lea Mwana

The LEA MWANA is a homeless shelter for needed children in Malindi, children who are not able to find help within their own families or that have been abandoned. At the moment, the structure hosts 50 children circa, aged between 2 and 18.

Paolo Ruggeri with great generosity and heart took care of these children and founded the Onlus PROGETTO LUCY SMILE, which supports since many years this structure.

During one of our trip to Kenya we met Paolo thanks to Laura Tamburini, treasurer of the Onlus Progetto lucy smile, who lives since many years in Malindi.

Thanks to a charity dinner organized in Sesto Fiorentino we were able to raise funds to contribute to the building of the roof REFLETTORIO of the center.

Paolo does not only support the center for children Lea Mwana, but also the center for disable children ST. FRANCIS.

St. Francis

One of the project that we care the most is the one that deals with the poorest and weakest children.

Children born in the black Africa and most of them disable.

Children who are often abandoned or even killed.

Here at the St.Francis center in Malindi, these amazing creatures find a place where they are not only followed by qualified personnel, but also by some mothers who thanks to different shifts sleep at the structure to help the children.

The St.Francis is one of the most touching and moving stop when we go to Kenya. There is always a lot to do here, from helping them to eat, to dance and play with them, and we always see great joy and happiness in their eyes. Besides this, we donated to the center a special wheel chair. But they do need much more, as for example specialized equipment, and specialized personnel.

Help the St,Francis to help the children in need.


God our Father


In 2017, we went for the first time to the orphanage GOD OUR FATHER in WATAMU.

It was an unforgettable moment, a long lasting emotion. So many children, very young ones and older one, all around mama Susi, who takes care of them with a lot of love. We immediately felt in love with the children. We took them to the beach, we played with them and made them spend a special day. We brought them clothes and games from Italy and we bought them food and livestock once we were in Africa.

During our first visit to Kenya, Chiara, a dentist, also joined us and thanks to her help we tried to teach those children oral hygiene, gifting them with toothpastes and toothbrushes.

During this trip; we found out that a dorm burnt down and that needed to be rebuilt. Therefore, we started a fundraising for the reconstruction of the dorm and we were able to give a good contribution to the cause.

Playroom GOF


When we started to visit the GOD OUR FATHER orphanage in Watamu (Kenya), we took care of many projects, one of which the children’s playroom. In the rain season the children cannot stay outside, where they have their area to play and therefore, we thought about equipping together with them a playroom where they can spend their time together.

We bought tables, chairs, plays and colours. With the children’s hands we coloured the walls and we all had a lot of fun doing it.

There is no need to give much, you can give as well joy and happy moments to the children in Kenya.
