Finishing well and starting again

The kids discussing prejudice and stigma
The kids discussing prejudice and stigma

We marked the end of 2011 with a week-long holiday club inviting Transition class along with all the children who have already progressed to primary school. We had an excellent week of fun and amidst the games, drama and crafts we discussed the issue of stigma and prejudice. Many of our children are stigmatised because they are from the slum or because they were 'street kids', this week the kids learnt that those labels are meaningless because each person is special and loved by God. It was a great way to end the year toegther.

After the Christmas break the children are heading back to school and for those children who were in Transition class last year, they are rejoining formal education after working hard to catch up with what they had missed. Many kids have stopped by the compound in Kibera to show off their new school uniforms on their way to school. Meanwhile, we open our doors again to a fresh intake of kids into Transition Class for the new year.
