Happy ThanksGiving

By Victor Odhiambo | Project Leader

Walking through the Dusty streets of Kibera slum, you can't help but notice the sadness  in everyone's face this is becuase of the challenges they have been facing the past 3 months which has lead to the death of at least 5 youth. Looking around, you can easily notice everyone sneezing, teary eyes and people standing in small groups mostly idle youth who have not had the opportunity to join school or those who have dropped out of school. 

This is where we meet Nicholas. He has been out of school the past 1 year. He was reffered to Garden of Hope Foundation by a friend who noticed how idle he was. Nicholas went through the leadership developement and entreperenurship program. A program which support youth who have dropped out of school and those who are not able to continue with education. After He graduated from high school, his parents were not able to continue paying his college fees, but now things are not the same for him. Nicholas went through the program and he now runs a small shop. He says, "the skills I got from the training by Garden of Hope Foundation has supported me start the business, keep records and build my entreperenurship skills"

Nicholas is just one out of 200 students who will Join us for program next year. In total the program has supported 50 youth since its inception and we we look foward to supporting more. This ThanksGivng you and your friend can help us support poor youth from Kibera slum gain sustainable skills. Your donation of $50 will go along way in ensuring a better future for them. Since the start of this year our project has impacted the live of 700 students through the different programs we run which include: Mentorship, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene and  Leadership development and entrepreneurship. 


Warm Regards

Victor Odhiamboa and Garden of Hope Foundation Team.
