About us

Who we are

The Jambo Hakuna Matata Foundation was established in 2009 from the personal involvement of some current board members and volunteers in development projects in Africa, especially Kenya. From the moment of its official establishment, there has been a great involvement of a growing group of people. This applies both to the people who actually work in the field as well as to those who support the work of the foundation in any other way or otherwise have a warm heart. The activities are concentrated in and around the city of Nyeri, a city located 150 km north of the capital Nairobi.


The vision of the JamboHakunaMatata Foundation is derived from the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). This treaty was adopted by the United Nations in 1989. All activities that the foundation undertakes or supports in its area of work are therefore elated to the right to Housing, Education and Care. Every children trusted to the care of the foundation has a place to live, can go to school and to a doctor if necessary.


The mission of theJamboHakunaMatata Foundation (JHM) is aimed at creating conditions so that the right to housing, education and care (WOZ) founder privileged children and the disabled can be guaranteed. That was and is the starting point for all projects in which JHM has been involved in the past and to this day. From the earlier realization of a residential facility (JamboRescue Home/2014) to the material and immaterial support of schools and facilities for medical care, attention is now focused on continuing these activities. All this with the aim of giving the young people entrusted to our care a basis with which they can independently organize their further lives.
