Project Report | Jan 24, 2022
At Home in Kibera

By Emily Obiti | Field Worker

“Hello, where is Mama Mimo?” we asked a vendor next to Mama Mimo’s vegetable shop. The vendor directed us to where we would find her. It was a hot sunny day and Mama Mimo was seated under an umbrella behind her shop. The moment she saw us, her face lit up in a smile. We could tell she was happy to see us.

We took a short walk to her house, where she welcomed us warmly and set each one of us a glass of drinking water. The condition of her home had improved compared to the last visit we had in 2019. Mama Mimo couldn’t hold back her excitement and began telling us how well her daughters, Mimo and Njeri, are doing in school. She also went ahead to add that her business of selling vegetables is doing well. She could not stop mentioning how grateful she was.

In all homes, we sat and talked to the parents and guardians and listened to them as they shared about their victories and struggles. Not all homes had improved conditions. Some were stagnant, while others were struggling to get a meal in a day. As we ended our visit with Mama Mimo, she said, “We always live each day worrying about the next, but God is the one who provides. So why worry when He is our sole provider?”

Our staff team aim to meet with the parent's of the children in our school regularly to understand the challenges at home and to build a good relationship with the whole family as we work together to see each child achieve their full potential. For many parents, knowing that their children will receive two good meals at school each day is a weight off their minds as they struggle to make ends meet. 

Thank you for providing free school meals to children like Mimo and Njeri.
