The Street is NO place for a Child - Kenya

Hello,

Thank you to everyone who has donated and continues to donate to help get the children off the streets of Nairobi, Kenya.  COVID-19 has restricted us but not stopped us!

Due to the fact that our project is to purchase land for a shelter/rescue centre and we have yet to raise enough funds to be able to do that, I wanted to take this opportunity to show you what we have been doing in Kenya.  

Attached are just a few photo's of our Street Feeding Program.  On this program we cook the food at home and then bring it to the children, women, babies and familes living on the streets.  We have also been lucky enough to be able to purchase sanitary pads, diapers and blankets for 25 women and babies living on the street.  Through donations we have been able to buy a cart/trolley for 8 of the street boys, with this cart they collect garbage and then sort through the garbage and sell the plastics and bottles.  In doing this they have now become self sustainable and are all living in shared houses, they share the money they earn everyday and earn enough to pay their rent and buy food.  

The photo below of Ben and Brian are just 2 out of the 5 street boys we have been able to get off the street, they are now living in a childrens home and have sponsors to go to school.  We find and help these boys when we are doing our street feedings, by doing this we are helping more and more children everyday.
