Challenge

Kimbilio has been providing essential support for street children in a large Church building in the Kenya area of Lubumbashi for 12 years. The Church is to be redeveloped and is no longer available for us to use. We are currently supporting over 100 children per week through this service and are urgently searching for a suitable property in the area to purchase and develop so we can continue to provide this much needed support service.

Solution

Owning our own site will allow us to continue to provide support for children living on the streets and creatively develop our work offering life skills training for former street kids and preventative support projects for families who are at risk of breakdown. Our own property will offer greater flexibility to develop and offer a greater range of support to vulnerable children and families. Training that will be offered include sewing and carpentry through our existing experienced staff team.

Long-Term Impact

The long term aim of this centre is to reduce the number of children on the streets of Lubumbashi. This purpose built 'Kimbilio Centre' will be in a position to offer a holistic support package to the street children we meet; from the streets, back to their families with family support being offered to ensure the family doesn't break down and the children don't return to the streets again.
