While in Kenya assisting a cheetah conservation program, Founder Susanne's heart was deeply moved when she was introduced to children whose impoverished families were unable to meet their basic needs, much less send them to school.
Susanne realized that the success of any conservation effort was dependent upon the health and education of African youth. In 2002 Wana Duma (Swahili for “Cheetah Children") was born to help Kenyan families pursue their dreams of education, sustainable employment, and conservation of their environment.
Why Support Wana Duma?
> Unparelleled success - all of our youth finish traditional or vocational education and secure sustainable employment.
> After closing 95% of the local children's projects due to corruption, Kenyan Child Protective Services recommends Wana Duma as a model project.
