WHO WE ARE
Cup of Uji is a non-profit school feeding initiative created in 2011 by Francis Otieno
Amonde. The organization was founded in response to the needs observed among public
primary school children in Oyugis, Homabay County, who went to school without having
eaten at home.
It began with one school, Nyatwere Primary School, and has since expanded to 11
schools in five counties namely: Nairobi, Kajiado, West Pokot, Kilifi, and Homabay, with
plans to feed many more public elementary schools across Kenya.
Cup of Uji provides porridge supplies such as porridge flour and sugar to a select number
of schools, leaving school cooks to prepare and serve porridge to all learners on school
days. The pupils who are supported are fed for free.
To fight hunger, drive education, boost health and nutrition and in the long term, alleviate poverty among the less privileged children
A hunger-free, healthier and poverty-free generation of children, young people and women
2023- 2024 goal
100,000 school children to be fed daily
Providing a sustainable future
We hope to provide a future where kids are less hungry in school and have equal opportunities in education by providing a Cup of Uji
