The Nancy Ellen Crooks Foundation is a charitable society that strives to bring happiness to marginalized children across Kenya.
At NECF we work to:
● Provide rural school children access to safe and affordable solar lights.
● Install playgrounds in communities to promote safe play, including Kenya's women's prisons
● Implement kitchen gardening projects to improve accessibility to food and nutrition.
We aim to engage and empower Kenya's communities and future generations with life changing opportunities. All of our country's children deserve to have hope, health and bright futures.
NECF was founded in 2010 in celebration of the life of Nancy Crooks who devoted her life to the betterment of the primary educational system and the lives of women in Kenya. Today, we take inspiration from her accomplishments and aim to honour her legacy by continuing to implement projects that bring happiness to children.
Since NECFs inception, we have implemented our programmes across the country, comprising our three main projects, Lights for Learning, Nancy’s Playgrounds and Nancy’s Gardens.
We strive to increase our impact each day by bringing solutions to children's issues across the country, partnering with entities with common goals and involving you all in our mission.
The Nancy Ellen Crooks Foundation implements projects that bring happiness and well-being to children and their families by providing access to new opportunities.
The Nancy Ellen Crooks Foundation is registered as a charity with the Registrar of Societies in Kenya no:41397.
We are not affiliated with any religious or political entity or institution.

One thing is for sure, Nancy loved Kenya. In 1986, Nancy Ellen co-authored a booklet, entitled ‘Kenya Trivia’, about Kenya’s ecology, geography and culture. Forty-two thousand copies were published and sold. This publication was a key text used by individuals training to be guides in the national museum, as well as safari guides.
