100% of your donation supports people in Kenya
Thanks to our “Guardians of the Smile”
Guardians of the Smile are supporting members and private individuals who donate specifically for our administration costs in Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
Thanks to them we can transfer every cent of your donation directly to our projects in Kenya.
Our commitment follows a holistic approach
We asked the people in Kenya what needs to change. Together, we identified four focus areas and developed solutions that we are working on in collaboration with the local communities. Our goal is a happier society in which all basic needs are met, everyone has equal rights and people have opportunities to independently improve their situation in the long term.
We help you to help yourselves - for the benefit of the children. Because we believe in your potential.
Trainings for Socialworkers and CHVs
Experts from Kenya, Austria and Columbia led trainings about nutrition, first aid, family care, children rights, and psychosocial care.
Women's rights and matters of reproductive health are staged in an exciting way and broadcasted on national radio programmes.
Make Me Smile Kenya Free Medical Camp

Maximilian Ullrich – Founder & Managing Director, Make Me Smile International
Your donation will be handled with the same care as if it were our own. During my ten years in development cooperation, I have learned how big of an impact can be made, even with the smallest means. Therefore, we take special care to ensure that every cent of your donation reaches the project you decide to support. We employ only local staff and continuously develop the local expertise of our organization by supporting our employees through university scholarships and further education. From the very beginning of each project, we consult the community and ensure their holistic participation, which results in the acceptance and success of our projects.
In addition to a high level of trust in our project team, an external auditor, regular project visits and continuous project reporting ensure transparency in Kenya. In Austria, Germany and Switzerland, our work is audited annually by the ministry of finance through external auditors.
