Donate from the United Kingdom
100% of your donations to Kickstart Kids International in Australia go directly to support our work in Kenya. Currently, our primary fundraising focus is the construction of our second orphanage initiative, Olturoto Children’s Village.
To lead by example, the management team of Kickstart Kids International in Australia has pledged to cover 100% of the administration expenses incurred to run the Australian organisation. This is to ensure that all your donations will make it to Kenya.
Please read our page on donating from the rest of the EU.
Donations are transferred from Kickstart Kids International in Australia and UK to Nanga Organization in Kenya. From there, Kickstart’s funds are applied directly to approved development projects. Kickstart Kids International receives updates from the local staff of Nanga Org to ensure that all the money reaches its intended purpose. Nanga Org is a registered Kenyan NGO (non government development organisation) that has been established to ensure the local community have an active role in the decision making process. Kickstart Kids International’s founder, James Woodward, also sit on the Nanga Org board of Trustees.

On an annual basis, independent audits are curried out for Kickstart Kids International Limited in Australia, Kickstart Kids International (UK) and Nanga Organization in Kenya. The financial records of Nanga Organization are maintained by KPMG Kenya.
Members of the Kickstart Kids International management team keep in daily contact with our Kenyan team and guarantee that at least one of our management team visits the projects in Kenya each year. Currently, Kickstart’s founder visits Olturoto Children’s Village at least once a quarter. Our travel costs are NOT funded by your donations.
