The Oloo's Children Center is a volunteer-operated school in the Kibera slums of Nairobi, Kenya.

History and operations[edit]

The school was established to educate and feed impoverished children that cannot afford to attend public schools. The school's founder, Judith Oloo, funds most of the operating costs from washing clothes by hand for fellow villagers.

The school gains support from tourists, most of whom wish to lend a hand in philanthropy projects in Kenya. The school has gained support from several countries including Australia, Denmark, France, Germany, India, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

The school is also supported by a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) organization, K&K World Wide, Inc., that works to assist with school operations, awareness, and funding.
