Kujali international


ku-jali (swahili verb): 1. to care for; 2. to give heed to; 3. to honor


Kujali international is a US 501(c)(3) public charity that partners with local communities to help establish free and low-cost private schools that provide orphaned & vulnerable youth with the tools, resources, and opportunities to overcome poverty and become agents of change in their communities.  Kujali schools are linked to social enterprises that help generate sustainable revenue to off-set operating expenses, while also providing business skills training to students and quality goods and services to the community.

In this way, Kujali endeavors to join grassroots, community-driven efforts as partners and advocates, working together to harness the power of education and social enterprise to alleviate poverty, empower vulnerable youth, and build a more equitable and sustainable world.
