We are excited to announce that our Director, Ms. Lucy Kayiwa, or 'Mama Lucy' as they call her in Kibera, has been selected as the keynote speaker at an upcoming event in San Francisco, California hosted by One World Children's Fund.

On November 16th, Lucy will share her experience to the estimated 400 guests in establishing and running St. Vincent's Nursery School and Rescue Center in Kibera, the population that St. Vincent's serves and the challenges that the organization and the families face in ensuring orphans and other vulnerable children in Kibera have the resources to survive and thrive.

This event will provide great exposure for St. Vincent's at a time when the organization is working hard to attract institutional support from foundations and companies in both Kenya and abroad to help keep operations running.

And thank you for your continued support!
