About The Nasio Trust
We’re empowering communities in western Kenya to break the cycle of poverty by providing education, improving health and developing commerce.
In Kenya we maintain 2 Early Childhood Development Centres in under-served rural areas with high levels of HIV. They now provide a daily meal, pre-primary education and medical care to over 400 children. We also work to improve living conditions with the local areas, building income streams and tackling the root causes of poverty.
In the UK we run a 10 month mentoring and fundraising programme for young people culminating in a trip to help at our projects in Kenya. The programme has been running for over 10 years and has taken almost 100 young people to Kenya, many of whom were disaffected or otherwise vulnerable.Visit The Main Nasio Website
Nasio Medical Centre Appeal
Bringing Healthcare To A Community In Need
The Nasio Trust supports nearly 400 children living in deep poverty in Western Kenya. Many have lost their parents through the HIV pandemic. These children are in desperate need of help. The Nasio Trust provides them with meals, education, medical treatment, clothing, and opportunities to play as well as learn. We make sure we are also helping the communities the children live in by providing healthcare awareness programmes and sustainable income generating projects to reduce reliance on aid.
Building a medical centre will save lives.
Help us build and equip the medical centre to transform lives and create a long-term sustainable future for this rural community. In the UK it is easy to take healthcare for granted but the children of Musanda currently have a 15 kilometre walk to reach healthcare. Sadly in the last year we lost two children and two young adults whose lives may have been saved with better access to medical care.Find Out More
