The Hotcourses Foundation and Nyumbani

Set up in 2004, The Hotcourses Foundation partners with Nyumbani UK to help provide children in Kenya with access to life changing care and education. 

Hotcourses Foundation and Nyumbani UK

In 2004 we teamed up with an organisation called Nyumbani in Nairobi, Kenya. Nyumbani takes in orphaned children affected with the HIV virus that are unable to go to school and also provides them with lifelong care. IDP Connect decided to invest in setting up a primary school to provide much-needed education for these children, in what has become the Nyumbani village. 

Today, the Hotcourses Foundation provides first class education to over 1,000 children with teachers from Nairobi. As a result of the education in our schools and outreach programmes in Nairobi slums, we are seeing our first students get into polytechnics and universities in Kenya. These students, typically studying vocational subjects, are gaining employability skills which will enable them to break free of the poverty trap.

Over the last 10 years IDP Connect has invested 5% of its profits annually into the Hotcourses Foundation, amounting to over £1 million in total.

Supporting the Foundation

There are several ways to support Nyumbani UK and the Hotcourses Foundation.

Sponsoring a child means you’re not only providing an education, but also helping a child be fed, housed and have medical support if they need it. In return, you’ll receive letters and photos from them, so you can see the real difference your donation is making. Find out more.
