Challenge

There are currently more than 25000 vulnerable children living in Nairobi informal dwellings who are out of school due to abject poverty. Their parents are either in financial or healthy crisis, therefore they can't afford to feed their children properly and pay the school fees. As a result, the vulnerable children are at risk of being exploited through child labor or lured into prostitution in exchange for money and might acquire HIV/AIDS through the already infected adults.

Solution

The main objective of this project is to provide children from Kiambiu slums of Nairobi with good and free education, as it is the first step to going out from rough poverty. We are therefore supporting the Glory Education Centre school located in Kiambiu. This tiny school currently receives 98 pupils aged between 3 to 10 years coming from the surrounding slums. Our activities are focused on supporting the school with: school stationery, food, uniform and health program.

Long-Term Impact

If we manage to fully support Glory Center ,we aspire to fund more schools in order to support even more vulnerable children. Through good education they will have a breakthrough to a better and sustainable life.
