Moving Mountains Kenya was founded initially to support street kids in Nairobi with extra-curricular programmes that helped them back into school. It began back in the late 1980s when the founder Gavin Bate was living in Kenya and working with a number of aid agencies including an effort by the Kenya Scouts to re-unite street children with their families, and help them into school.Now Moving Mountains Kenya is a registered NGO which focusses on three main areas of Education, Social Welfare and Heath.
