Amazing Figures

Child Rescue Kenya has continued to reunite lone children found in the streets of Kitale with thier families. Through the streetsmart program this year alone starting January to end of May 54 children were reffered to the Rescue centre from the streets. In the streets 40 children continued to access street based education of whom 5 have been enrolled for national examination and showing tremendous literacy improvements. They sat for examinations and given school report cards and this was very exciting. They felt like thier counterpats in the formal schools. 62 children were reunited with thier familes and retained at home and also went back to formal schools.

Amazingly despite all the efforts the number of the children and youth leaving and working in the streets of Kitale was 796( as per the head count report counted in July 2015 Railway Children in collaboration with Child Rescue Kenya). 247 were sleeping on the streets at night 60% being 15yrs and below.

These are shocking figures as more children continue coming to the streets the trend is worrying. The County government treats them as a menace that should be eradicated and this explains why they are subjected to inhuman treatment.  Child Rescue Kenya through the advocacy department continues to lobby the county the government to respect the rights of children and come up with initiatives that will adress their plight and sensitise communities to make deliberate efforts to stay with children at home, CRK has also liases with Child Protection Unit at the Police to secure a release of children often locked up with adults in same cells.

Child Rescue Kenya thinks of scaling up the work on the streets but constrained by resources, and so continues to appeal to those who care about the suffering  children go through to support  Child Rescue Kenya efforts.

Thank you again for your donations and support.
