Windle International Kenya | About_us

Today in history

Dr Hugh valued education highly and believed that good education was key to promoting positive change in Africa. He became increasingly concerned with the plight of African refugees arriving in Kenya and with the need for educational development in Kenya.

He opened his home in Nairobi to refuges from other parts of Africa particularly from Ethiopia & Eritrea and subsequently financed their education in Universities in the United Kingdom, North America and as far abroad as Fiji.

This became his vocation for a decade till his death on 16th October 1986. Since Hugh’s death, Windle International Kenya as a member of Windle Trust International federation not only provides education to help individuals but equips them to promote stable development in their communities through work as doctors, teachers, community leaders, nurses, managers, technical experts, lawyers, social workers and many others pursuing Hugh’s vision for Africa to meet her challenges.
