Child Survival and Development in Nairobi Slums

Mar 18, 2012

Conference of Collaborative Organizations

This report is coming from Nairobi, Kenya where we have just completed a 4 day conference with representatives of the Orphans and Vulnerable Children's Project (OVC) directors and staff, the University of Tennessee, Knoxville departments of Public Health and Child Development and Kenyatta University departments of Public Health and Child Development.

These three organizations are developing a collaboration that will provide expertise and strengthen the work of the OVC Project and give faculty and students the opportunity to obtain field work in their fields of study.

At the same time the OVC project is making plans and beginning work to help improve conditions in the over 70 Baby Care Centers in our three communities of Mlolongo, Sophia and Bondeni. Your most recent generous donations will be used in the Helping Moms and their Babies project that we reported on in our last report. The next report will have more details about the work that is proceeding in the Centers.
