Welcome to The Baobab School

I’m Jane Wyatt. With the help of my own adult children and a group of friends, I established a charity in 1994 to give orphaned and destitute children in Kenya the chance to break out of a life of poverty and despair. I lived and worked in Kenya for a number of years and my background is in nursing and business management.

It all started in a small way with a handful of children all of whom received proper education and many now have good jobs. Today we support more than 100 young children age 3-12 years and the number and need continues to grow each year.

I hope you will feel inspired with some of our videos, pictures and stories and will want to join us with your support – we welcome practical and financial help as well as fresh contacts and new ideas. Do please get in touch!
