About Us:

We are a non-profit organization located in Thika, Kenya, we started a few years ago as a soccer team to help our children to have a better future, everything has grown and now we founded our first school.

''Ivy League Academy Kenya" is a project created by friends to fight hunger in Kenya. We believe that nobody should have to live without enough food daily. Hence, almost 800 kids have been feeding every single day.  Our vision is of a world free from poverty, fear, and oppression. A world where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. For over 3 years we have been working with children in extreme poverty with one goal: to transform their lives.

We do not only feed children. It also supports at-risk teenagers to join high school through fees and material support.

Currently, our project has 5 feeding centers spread across Kenya. These are:

  1. Thika, near Nairobi
  2. Ruiru, near Nairobi
