A Helping Hand

By a female, 22-30 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of  A HELPING HAND Last week I was privilaged to find a group called NAGEYO in Mathare, the youth group has a children center in Mathare and a school. Visiting where the group hosts 26 children I was challenged to be a giver. Though the group has rented 3 rooms which one can say is below the standards of housing, it is giving hope to the children have no home or shelter. They provide the children with food, shelter and clothing from the little income the members of the group have. The group identified the children from events they used to host and found out that that even after the event was over they did not go away. They did a follow up on the children and found that the children used to sleep near river banks and during the day they collected scrap metal and sold to get money to buy food. The group then took the children out of the street and gave them a home, a place to belong to. They also provided the children with basic education to improve their future. Read more.
