Home and Street Kids Welfare Initiative plans to build five classrooms to provide free education for the street kids who hail from the poorest sections of society in Kwara State Nigeria, also providing the kids free meals. This project runs a free school in Ilorin, Kwara State for the used to be street kids, providing a one on one structured learning to 32 street kids both from Nigeria, Niger Republic and Mali.
The economic condition in Niger Republic and Mali has sent even more people flooding across the borders in to Nigeria. Some of these people are being used to perpetrate evil because of their vulnerability and a desperate search for survival. Instead of leaving them to survival on the streets, Home and Street Kids Welfare Initiative will empower the parents in a skill and provide an education for the kids and an opportunity to become part of a larger solution for their community.
We provide free education to street kids with free meals and empowerment workshop for their parents (training in Soap making, Cain Work, Beads making, packaging, marketing and business skills).
The project will educate 100 street kids allowing them to rise out of poverty, which will latter provide for their families` health and well being.
