Welcome to Upendo Kids International Website

Our mission is to provide child-centered programs that prepare all children for a lifetime of learning, while families of those children are empowered to become self independent. The programs provide quality, comprehensive early and late child development programs and family services to meet the basic needs of low income population.

Upendo Annual Gala 2017

The goal of the Upendo Kids International’s “Make A Dream Come True” gala is to help fund the purchase of an expansive, 3 acre property in Kenya, Africa to relocate the Upendo Children’s Home. Upendo lovingly cares for and educates 40 children who were either orphaned or previous street children.

Who We Are

Upendo Kids International was founded in 2007 when the founder, Eunice, realized that there were many children’s needs that were not being addressed back in her motherland.

How You Can Help

The mission of Upendo Kids International is bold and needs your help to be accomplished. There are a number of ways that you can help and be a blessing to these kids.

Meet The Founders

Upendo Kids International was started by Eunice and Robert Menja, natives of Kenya who moved to Oklahoma to pursue higher education.
