HELPING DESTITUTE CHILDREN TO SURVIVE AND PROGRESS

Day Centres

Most Kenyans live on less than £1 a day and struggle to survive. The poorest people often live in slums where life is very harsh.

We have day centres in three slums at Madharau, Umoja and Kivulini. We provide day care, meals, health checks, clothing and nursery education for 200 children as well as support for their families.  This enables the mothers or guardians to earn from casual work and buy food or medicine for their family.  There are no maternity benefits or pensions so we also feed young mums and old folk.  

We liaise with community elders and employ members of the slum as helpers. The results have been fantastic.  Children grow strong and healthy, learn to socialise and get a great start at primary school.

 

 

 

Education

Education provides the most effective route out of poverty for young people. We reach beyond our centres and give grants to deprived children in poor communities so they can attend school , vocational training or University.  

They are encouraged to socialise and make new friends.  This experience helps them when they  embark on their future life.  Their progress is monitored by our social workers and where necessary we provide additional tuition and counselling after school.

The children are highly motivated to do well in class or arts or sports.  Our goal is to give them academic and life skills that will enable them to get employment and have a secure independent future.  The children are benefiting hugely from the grants and achieving excellent results.
