About

Between the Oxford Kite committee, we plan to cycle 4,284 miles which is the distance from Oxford to Nairobi! We plan to complete this challenge in 5/6 weeks and can't wait for you to join us on our journey. We are fundraising for our mentorship scheme that launched in December aiming to reduce school drop outs and develop entrepreneurial skills in Nairobi. Thank you for any donations!

Kite Oxford Nairobi Kite Oxford Nairobi

Kite Oxford-Nairobi is a student led initiative seeking to maximize the agency and impact of students in development. Partnering with a student committee in Nairobi, we draw on research from Oxford and universities in Nairobi to develop and implement innovative projects, tackling poverty-related challenges that have been identified by Kenyan communities as being important to them. The aim is to pilot the projects at a smaller scale, show the concept works, and then handover the project concept to larger organisations who can scale their impact. To date, we have two projects. The first is a mentorship scheme, where we recruit and train university students to act as careers counsellors and role models for secondary school students in areas of Nairobi where school drop out rates are high. The second is a social enterprise model, aiming to tackle the Kenyan Jigger Flea epidemic through access to affordable shoes and education.
