We are so pleased to announce that the 'Return 35 street-children from Kibera to school' has now been fully funded. We are so grateful to everyone who has supported us to get this far.

Nancy lost both of her parents to HIV/AIDs and was sent to live with relatives. She was passed around different uncles and aunts, none of whom were able to send her to school. One of aunt's, Judy, noticed that whenever she went to visit one uncle she came home very depressed and withdrawn. Judy soon discovered that the uncle had been abusing Nancy and immediatly put a stop to it. She brought Nancy to Turning Point where she joined Transition Class and is now catching up on the studies that she has missed. In January 2015, she will be ready to rejoin formal education. For Nancy, the Turning Point centre is a place of safety, a place to belong, a place where she knows people care about her and will protect her.

Thank you all who have donated to support this Turning Point programme to keep running and growing to help more kids like Nancy. On their behalf, thank you.
