What do we do?
KSC works for the benefit of children. We have five main departments in which we try to address children’s needs. KSC have many years of experience working with children in all aspects and our programs for child protection, education and sponsorship have been running for several of years. In 2005 we developed the health department, which means we can help more children, and have access to specialist resources.
The Distant Sponsorship Program was initiated in 1992; we now have more than 2,800 private sponsors donating money to individual children every month. The money goes to school fees, uniforms and books, medicine or treatment, and general comforts.
