CAVS students donating gifts to less fortunate children at Mully Children's Family at Matuu.
The students and staff from the College of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences visited Mully’s children family. During the visit, students donated foodstuffs and clothes. They also socialized with the children through fun games. At the mentorship session, the children were encouraged to work hard in class so as to join University of Nairobi.
Mully Children’s Family (MCF), located at Matuu, has two homes at Ndalani and Yatta. The home has over 1000 children, newborn to youth, from less fortunate backgrounds including HIV/AIDS orphans abandoned by their parents and victims of sexual and domestic violence.
The family also supports the local communities within Ndalani and Yatta. Matuu is an extremely dry area, yet the children’s home is 55% self-sustaining through modern technology Agriculture; an insight that through embracing modern technology agriculture, our nation can feed its entire population regardless of inhospitable climate.

CAVS has developed a strong relationship with the children over the last five years. Previous visits to the family have been a great life changing experience to the students. It enabled them to appreciate the efforts of Dr Charles Mully, an exceptionally inventive and innovative entrepreneur, in positively transforming lives of over 13,000 disadvantaged children for the last 25years through philanthropic activities.
In future, the college hopes to partner with several corporate organizations and friends of the University in supporting the children family.
