The Teens from The Good Samaritan Children's Home attend several different secondary schools: public schools, trade schools, and boarding schools. Boarding schools are located away from Nairobi and offer teens a superior education. This is good for educational goals, but somewhat leaves the children on their own. During visiting days parents are encouraged to visit. Since the children have no parents, this produces a lonely time for the teen. Director of the Good Samaritan Home, Mercy Thuo states that the Home tries to send a person the teen knows to visit the school and child, but with workers so busy and scarce, this is a rare occurrence. We would like to provide volunteers who could become pen pals of these children and/or volunteer at The Good Samaritan Home, freeing a worker to make a visit to the child's school.
