Summary

The Ngao Foundation knew very little about COVID-19 but now we know that it is going to be with us for a long time. It has come with unintended consequences as so many children still remain at home roaming streets even after school reopening. As children stay longer out of school, we are witnessing a greater risk that the poorest among them have never returned to school. We are experiencing increased cases of violence, child labor, and child marriage, and their mental wellbeing.

Challenge

Kangemi is an informal makeshift settlement with an estimated population of 250,000 people mostly living below poverty level. Most of the women and young girls living here lack basic skills and education for income generation. Their dependency on handouts from men through transactional sex make them vulnerable to social abuse, sexual exploitation, unwanted pregnancies, HIV/AIDS infection and domestic violence as they attempt to get their basic needs. This makes their children vulnerable.

Solution

When schools closed in March 2020, we expected that every child will resume schooling but it never happened. A good number of children remain from vulnerable families have never returned to school. We need them back to school to learn with others. There is increased cases of violence, child labor as they continue roaming the streets. Together let us help 760 children get back their happy lives by helping them access education as well as reduce child violence and labor.

Long-Term Impact

Self-sustained children will be an asset to their families/the community. This will change their perception of themselves and that of the community. Children will develop a sense of belonging in the community along with those already in school. The supported families will have a smile on their faces and will afford basic needs and support their children education. Children being back to school will enhance their career dreams propel them to take up community/national leadership roles as others.
