Summary

The Rescue Centre provides a safe and loving home to 15-20 boys and girls ages 5-17 years in Kibera who have been orphaned, often due to HIV/AIDS, or have experienced abuse in their homes.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In Kibera, the HIV/AIDS prevalence rate is estimated at 20%. As a result, many children in Kibera have been orphaned due to the death of their parents from AIDS. Often, these children go to live with extended families, while some children live in child-headed households. Without the protection of primary caregivers, children are more vulnerable and at risk of becoming victims of violence, exploitation, trafficking, discrimination or other abuses.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project provides a loving home to orphaned children, including children living with HIV/AIDS, and children experiencing abuse in the home. Children are cared for by our house mother, Grace, and when appropriate, are reunified with family members.

Potential Long Term Impact

We will provide children the tools they need (and would otherwise not have) for long-term survival: an opportunity to grow up in a safe home free of abuse, to receive adequate nutrition and medical care, and to attend primary and secondary school.
