“My social responsibility in society is achieved in working with others to help the children. I want to ensure that my work is productive to enhance the running of the home and make the children happy and comfortable.”

Kelvin Loaf is the name of our bakery business based within our campus.
The project, which was originally supported by Kelvinside Academy in Glasgow in the UK, was set up to produce and sell affordable bread to on low incomes living in Nairobi’s Kibera slum and other similar areas of the city.
By providing an affordable, half sized loaf, many people who cannot afford to buy a full sized loaf are able to purchase bread for approximately 10p.
The bakery provides all the bread required for the orphanage and JGA, whilst also supplying a variety of other products which are supplied to both Can-Afrika café and sold locally.
Bread is also distributed for free to other orphanages and destitute people in the city thanks to donations to the Balcraig Foundation.
All profits go back into the running costs of KCH.
Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our UK supporters, nearly 2500 loaves of bread were distributed between 13 local children’s homes in December, bringing smiles to literally hundreds of faces.
Financial support for the Kelvin Loaf project is invaluable because it helps us to help others. We regularly support a variety of other children’s homes, rehabilitation centres and other charities working with children and the impoverished, by providing gifts of bread and other baked goods.
