For over 15 years, our passionate Association for World Education, AWE has been enriching
the lives of many children in Kenya
. We are deeply rooted in the belief that education and
humanity are the most useful tools for enhancing an individual’s capacity. Therefore we,as

A non-profit organization with the main objectives being philanthropy. After our founder (Johannes Abildtrup) saw a group of homeless children, he had an opportunity to keep in touch with them and observe their innermost desires. Consequently, he created a desire to build an all-inclusive home for these children the city of Nairobi. This desire has changed to much more. Our organization work has evolved to much more than street children. We work with widows and women inmarginalized-communities in Kenya. We focus on building sustainable solution through different projects such as farming entrepreneurship self-help groups and much more.
