What we do

Child.org exists to spark progress in global child health. 

We do this by discovering, designing and delivering solutions that keep children alive and healthy. The work we do generates discoveries and insights that help everyone to support the health of children more effectively.

Discovery. We work to find opportunities to better help children. 

Design. We create solutions to the problems children face.

Delivery. We deliver projects - and we monitor, assess and report on the results. 

Child.org is led from our office in Nairobi, and all our work is conducted in close partnership with local communities. 

Here are some examples of projects from the Child.org incubator. Use the buttons on the right to filter by programme or type of project.

“I like HealthStart and I love working with it” Pauline (facilitator of HealthStart programme from Ogra foundation)
OverviewFor so many children, their greatest barrier to an education is their health. Child.org's largest programme tackles this problem comprehensively.
AimsHealthStart aims to provide a comprehensive school health programme - dealing with not just one problem, but as many as possible! We find ways for schools to provide clean water, soap, deworming, malaria nets, family planning, food, training in health and life skills - whatever's needed at that particular school. HealthStart works directly with schools, strengthening their internal systems and offering new ways for the school to tackle issues themselves. This way we create sustainable change that will have positive effects today and for generations to come
