“Happy 29th anniversary Turning Point!” Chanted the children during the organization’s 20th anniversary celebrations as they danced to music.
In attendance was 200 children attending the Turning Point education programmes, alumni, parents of the children, community leaders, Ministry of Education officers and esteemed Turning Point partners.
It was a day to behold, sharing the journey of Turning Point and the impact it has made in the community of Kibera returning about 900 children to school. A journey that started with serving porridge to 7 children in 2003 to now supporting 250 children in the different education programmes and indirectly reaching over 150 families and a further 600 children through the community library.
Stories were told of Rhoda, Benedicta, David, Bonne etc. Great stories of now adults who are thriving and contributing positively to the growth of the community and the nation of Kenya in different sectors. They are leading much better lives supporting themselves and their families. These are stories of beneficiaries who are on the right track to achieving their full potential.
As the long day was coming to an end, the children were served a special meal of pilau (fried rice in spices and beef), chapati (unleavened flat bread) some cabbage stew, fruit and juice. Cake was finally served to crown the day!
Thanks to our supporters for making this day special to our children.
