The Thunder Foundation

Our official charity is The Thunder Foundation.  

Thunder is a very small, family-run British charity founded in 2012, working every day to give young children the start in life that they deserve. The charity provides education, housing, food, healthcare, medication, sanitation and support to children living in Kawangware, Nairobi - one of Africa's largest slums. With over 800,000 people living in Kawangware and 60% being children, it is one of the most populated slums in Nairobi. 


In 2023, Wimbledon School of English raised £1580 for our chosen charities! 

The Thunder Foundation, Jeans for Genes UK, DEC Disaster Emergency Committee, and Save the Children.


Here are some of the many projects that the Foundation has been involved in to support these children and their families:


We are very proud to be supporting The Thunder Foundation and our aim for this year, along with our students and partners, is to help them in all their missions and future plans.
