Challenge

The problem is to help children who are abandoned by their parents. These children live on the streets of Nakuru and have no shelter or whatsoever. Also, they are deprived from other essential elements of a decent living standard, such as regularly getting food and education.

Solution

SCANN is providing shelter, clothing, food and education to the street children of Nakuru. As can be seen on the Youtube video, they live on the premises of SCANN. The children are brought by volunteers to SCANN and stay there on a voluntary basis.

Long-Term Impact

Since 1997 SCANN is doing its work. The long-term effect is that street children are given an opportunity to find a respected position in the Kenyan society. There are many examples of now grown-up children from SCANN that have a decent living.
