Smiles of Ayo

About Us

Smiles of Ayo foundation was mainly started to improve the livelihood of people living in two main slums of Kenya namely Kibra and Mathare, and also other rural parts of Kenya. We believe that we will be able to achieve this by empowering women and youths, and also by giving the children a chance to get better education which they have a right to according to Kenyan and international laws.
