Over 5,000 Children in Nyandarua, Central Kenya, are orphans & vulnerable, with the number set to increase due to rising poverty levels, high cost of living & children orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS. Most of these children can't afford access to quality education, forcing them to have low school attendance rates & quite a number to drop out. This often leads them to indulge in drug & substance abuse, crime, prostitution among other societal vices that pose a risk to their lives.

This will entail provision of: quality education, a nutritious diet, clothing & shelter as well as a computer literacy program to equip the beneficiaries with basic IT skills.
