The Thunder Foundation Mission Statement

The Thunder Foundation was founded by Raad Swais in 2012 and his aim was simple - to make a noise for the children who cannot be heard. Thunder does this by raising awareness and providing help to the children who live in the slums of Nairobi.

The Foundation Currently:

  • Sponsors 26 children to attend the Great Vision Primary School in Kikuyu, Nairobi, where they receive an education and are placed on a feeding programme which provides two meals per day plus snacks. We also help with heath care and social wellbeing. These children would otherwise not receive an education as they come from the poorest families in the Kawangware slum area.
  • Runs a Football Academy for 70 children and young adults which not only provides coaching but a meal after training each day and an opportunity to make friends. Team Thunder also helps with the social wellbeing of the Academy students.
  • Houses, Clothes, Feeds and Educates fourteen homeless children who until The Thunder Foundation discovered them, they had spent a large majority of their lives on the streets of Nairobi.
  • Supports Calvin, a young boy from Kawangware to attend The Muslim Primary School.
  • Sponsors 16 Children with Special Needs to attend school. Perceptions in Kenya of Children with disabilities are often shrouded in stigma and are discriminated against because of this lack of understanding. That is why we feel passinately that our aim to place these children in an educational setting is the first big step to breaking down social barriers. These wonderful Children deserve the right to reach their full potential.
We are a small but very passionate charity. We rely on donations and sponsorship to maintain this level of support. Every penny that you give to The Thunder Foundation goes to supporting these children - there are no middle-men. We are proud of what we have achieved so far but there is still so much more to be done. Please help us to continue this life-changing work for some of the poorest children in the world.
