About Us

Friends of Kianjai Kenya (FKK) was started by 3 families, one Kenyan and two British, to enable the people of Kianjai to survive the famine of 2011. For 4 months FKK bought maize and beans to feed a community that was on the brink of starvation.

In October 2011 the rains thankfully came and there was a harvest. Through the challenging time of famine FKK discovered that this vibrant rural Kenyan community has leaders of integrity, creativity and energy for change. Their resources are depleted but the social enterprise and dedication is inspiring. Friendships have been forged which make FKK uniquely placed to work at a grass roots level and to make a significant contribution to change. We see it as our role to work with community leaders to identify sustainable solutions, and to channel resources which will enable them to realise their vision and chart their future.
