Kianda Foundation was started as a non-profit making Educational Trust aimed at promoting the educational, professional, cultural and spiritual welfare of women in Kenya. A Trust Deed established the Foundation on 9 January 1961. It is registered under the Land (Perpetual Succession) Act. It achieves this aim through the establishment and management of schools, colleges, and training centres for both women and girls, thus promoting their general education. Kianda Foundation projects have grown continuously over the years in answer to the real needs of women’s development in different fields at a particular time. The projects of the Foundation respond to the conviction of the Trustees that women provide the key to a social development based on Christian values.
