We believe in the balance of food, education & health.
Education, food, uniforms, books, and health cover
are free for all our students.

The Thunder Foundation

The Thunder Foundation was set up in 2012 to raise awareness of the daily struggles which children in Kenya face in order to be educated and to survive. A year later, The Thunder Foundation decided to go a step further, and offer children a life changing opportunity: an education.

The plan was to open a small primary school that will offer free, high quality education, a nutritional food plan coupled with a provisional medical scheme. The local council has indicated that the school is the first of its kind to provide free education, free food, free uniforms, free books, and free health cover to all its students and this is something we are very proud of!

The school is located in a small town called Mutaratara which is in the Kikuyu district. This area is perfect as it attracts the 'forgotten children' where the bigger charities tend to work within the larger slums. Children are selected on a 'highest needs' basis. Sadly, most children suffer tremendously from malnutrition, and many others from extremely serious illnesses.

Future Plans


Our current School building has only room for another year group. The new intake of children will be in January 2015. We need bigger premises for January 2016.

The Thunder Foundation hope is to raise enough funds to buy a piece of land and build a school. We will need £30,000 in the first instance. £15,000 to buy land and £15,000 to build the school.

Please donate
Every single penny really does count and a small amount today to help these young children is a huge investment in their future.
