Meeting The Basic Needs Of Children And Their Communities

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of Meeting the basic needs of Children and their communities Childslife international is an organisation that rehabilitates orphans and vulnerable children in Kibera. It also does this in other countries like Romania, Netherlands. In addition,it supports HIV infected people around Kibera by providing them with food and with basic education. They are involved in group discussions or meetings whereby they meet weekly and share their experiences together hence stigmatization doesn't affect them. They encourage each other therefore they feel as normal people. The vision of the organisation is to reach the many families that have not been reached. so they can also have an opportunity to benefit others as those who have benefited from them. Read more.

The importance of you as an individual to be healthy and to keep fit. It encourages us to visit the gym and gives the benefit of doing so for a healthy mind and body. Read more.
