Our Story

What’s the story?

Team Kenya was founded in 2008 by Valerie Wilson, a geography teacher and senior manager working in a secondary school in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. Before establishing Team Kenya, Valerie had been working with the Ndhiwa community since 1999, focusing on school partnerships and curriculum exchange. In 2008 Valerie left her job in teaching to dedicate her time to Team Kenya and is now the Chair of Trustees. Her daughter, Victoria, has been involved with the charity since it was founded and is now the charity’s first paid member of staff.

Since 2008, Team Kenya have built a strong relationship with the community in Ndhiwa and the Ndhiwa Community Empowerment and Development Project (NCEDP). Team Kenya work in partnership with NCEDP and together we have transformed the lives of over 5,000 children and their families in Ndhiwa.
