A better world for all of us

Core of Humanity

If we want to change the world, we need to start with education and young people are the future, so we invest in them. We invest in our children to change the world, one child at a time.

"Compassion is the core of humanity"


Core of Humanity is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that educates children, supports socio-economic activities and environmental conservation in the hardest areas of Kenya-East Africa.
