In 2007, Leila de BruyneToby Storie-Pugh and Justine King (pictured above with Joseph) started Flying Kites after spending time working with orphaned and homeless children in the slums of Kayole.  Determined to provide a preferential option for the poor, the trio purchased a six-acre farm in Kenya's central highlands and built a home and school for children who would otherwise have nowhere to turn.  

Today, Flying Kites is still driven by a desire to challenge the status-quo.  No more bowls of rice and rows of bunk beds.   We can do better for a generation desperate for a chance to fight their own way out of poverty.  Join us.
