Carrefour, owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim in Kenya, has completed a KES 8.5 million kitchen renovation project at Children’s Garden Home and School in Kawangware under the ‘Round Up Your Bill’ social initiative.

The project, which included the construction of a modern kitchen equipped with a walk-in fridge, motorised hood, kitchen island with high- and low-pressure burners, deep sink and a posho mill room, has successfully helped the home adopt clean energy cooking.

The renovation will benefit more than 500 children, including children of determination.

Christophe Orcet, Regional Director of Carrefour – East Africa, Majid Al Futtaim Retail, commented: 

“The completion of this project is a significant milestone for everyone involved. The renovation is aimed at elevating the experience of all students and creating a sustainable and safe environment for future generations. With the launch of ‘Round Up Your Bill’, our customers have embraced our vision, and have greatly contributed towards the success of the project. At Carrefour, we remain committed to introducing initiatives that serve the communities in which we operate.”

Through the ‘Round Up Your Bill’ initiative, which is available across Carrefour stores in the country, customers can voluntarily contribute by donating a few shillings after shopping. Carrefour then rounds the number up and utilises the accumulated funds to support educational, social and environmental protection initiatives.

Moses Ndungu, Director at Children’s Garden Home and School, added:

“We are thankful to Carrefour and its customers for the goodwill towards Children’s Garden Home. We have struggled in the past with energy costs in cooking and critical facilities for children. This has changed massively, and children are now enjoying their stay here. The impact will be felt for many years to come.”

This is the third project that Carrefour has successfully completed and handed over during the

past month, with more than KES 15 million in investments across targeted projects aimed at supporting schools, children and elderly homes.
