Challenge

There are currently over 1000 orphans leading miserable lives in the slums of Kisumu city. Poverty index released by the Government indicates that Nyanza Province where Kisumu is located is the second poorest in the country with Kisumu having 17% of HIV/AIDS prevalence. Children are the worst hit lot in this situation with hundreds left under the care of their aging grand parents who cannot provide for their basic needs hence child labor and prostitution.
