Get Involved

The Giraffe Centre is a Non-Profit making organization whose main objective is to provide conservation education for school children and the youth of Kenya. All our education programmes are offered to them free of charge. The Giraffe Centre derives 90% of its funds from the entrance fee collected and from the sales in the gift shop and teahouse. Therefore, by visiting us and/or making purchase from our shop and teahouse you have contributed towards conservation education to the Kenyan youth. 

AFEW also welcomes donations that will help in running and facilitating the education programmes at the Centre such as ecology trips for schools, workshops and awareness campaign activities such as clean ups and tree planting.
