We love to share the story of Kupenda and the children we’ve supported in leading full, healthy lives. These stories raise awareness about the global situation for many people living with disabilities and help generate support for the children we serve.
When we visit your group, our executive director, Cindy Bauer, will tell the story of how she founded Kupenda for the Children alongside her friends and colleagues in Kenya. She’ll talk about those we’ve helped and the work that remains and how you and your group can become involved in supporting children with disabilities. Most importantly, Cindy will listen to your story – what you feel called to and where your personal mission might align with ours. Our visits are professional, but also relaxed and informative. We encourage participants to ask questions and lead discussions on the topics that arise naturally.
