About Us

CARA Projects is the brainchild of Paddy O’Connor. Over the last five years Paddy has worked on a number of projects in Africa, ranging from the building of orphanages and schools to the provision of a mini-bus for a remote orphanage outside Nairobi.

Through his extensive experience in Kenya, Paddy came to realize the impact that building projects could have on a community. He feels that the greatest benefit can be given to a community by providing them with good facilities for their children.

With this in mind he decided to create his own building project where a group of volunteers would travel to Kenya to work on a building project that mattered. It would start small but each year it would grow and develop some more.
