High rate of poverty,high prevalence of HIV/AIDS and malaria in Kisumu has contributed to high number of orphans in the slums resulting in child labor,street life child prostitution & school drop out.


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.


To address these problems the following activities will be undertaken:Home based care, provision of basic education,feeding,provision of health care, clothing and school uniforms,providing seed money to the old guardians and trainings on basic skills

Long-Term Impact

In the long term, illiteracy rate will reduce, self employment will be created, malnutrition will reduce, reduced child labor and prostitution, improved lives to the orphans, reduced school drop out,and increased income to the old guardians.
