Child Giving – Change a life
Join us in changing lives, one child at a time. Because of you,
- one child can eat a meal,
- one child can go to school,
- a family can enjoy a meal,
- a sick child can receive the medical care he or she needs.
Donate today. Thank you.
According to statistics released during last week’s international conference on Aids in Barcelona, Spain, the number of children orphaned by Aids in Kenya stands at 890,000 – the third highest in the world.
These children are often ostracized and abandoned by their families from fear and ignorance of the disease. With no place to go, they wind up living on the streets.
- Street Children have NO medical care
- Street Children are vulnerable to sexual exploitation
- Population 43,000,000
- Unemployment rate 40%
- Mortality rate under 5 years 9%
- Underweight children 23%
- Stunting under 5 years 34%
- Annual population growth 3.5%
- 14% of adult males and 31% of adult females can not read or write
The four public and ten private universities in Kenya can only accommodate less than half of those seeking post-secondary education.
Your donation will provide food, clothing, education, supplies, uniforms, and / or medical care for vulnerable children in Kenya. We thank you for your generosity.
The proceeds from Aina Moja help support the Street Children Fund as well as the other projects of Expanding Opportunities.

- What We Do
Aina Moja is Kiswahili for "one of a kind". Each item is uniquely hand-made by African artists and therefore, one of a kind. Due to the fact that each item is handmade, actual item may vary slightly from product image.
Aina Moja products are sold at art and craft fairs throughout the summer and fall as well as in the Aina Moja shop in Belfast, Maine.
Aina Moja is a member of Fair Trade Gifts and is part of the Artisan Support project of Expanding Opportunities, a 501(3)c organization.
Our items are purchased directly from artisans in Kenya, Africa and not at tourist stations. The purchase of the items supports individuals and families in Kenya.
Proceeds from sales of the items at Aina Moja help support the projects of Expanding Opportunities, including the Street Children Fund, STEMS, Camp Forest, Friends Across the Ocean, Books for Kenya, and Distance Learning Centers. Expanding Opportunities has the greater mission of increasing self-sufficiency through educational and charitable projects for people nationally and internationally.
Aina Moja offers you an opportunity to donate for a child or give to Expanding Opportunities. Add a donation to your order for yourself or give a donation as a gift.
