The Foundation was initially started in 2014 to address the growing problem of street children with Nanyuki hosting one of the largest populations of street children per capita in Kenya.

In total, 62 people including BATUK personnel, local volunteers and business owners supported the fundraising initiative, helping to raise a grand total of Ksh 113,000 for the Foundation.
