It is the school holiday here in Kenya. The children have a month at home at this time of year. So life at CRK is as busy as usual.
We are conducting more outreach on the streets to engage with the larger number of children that we tend to see there during the break. A number of the schools have feeding programmes that do not run in the holidays and so children come to the streets to find money and food to see them and their families through the month. We encourage the children to join us at our Street Smart centre where they can eat, and engage them in classroom and sports-based activities.
We are supporting a number of young people through school and the new term will see some of them getting ready for their Kenya Certificate of Primary (and Secondary) examinations. There are therefore some children who are trying to study as well as helping their families.
To ensure that all of the children we work with are supported, we are increasing our work with families to help them make the most of their land and/or start their own businesses. In the picture is a small family shop that we have helped to set up. Assisting families like this one to better support the children and keep them at school, we are not only helping young people to leave the street and stay in caring homes but we are also working to prevent oher children migrating to the street in the future.
