Kenya Projects

Kenya, in east Africa, is plagued by endemic poverty, extreme drought, and the HIV/AIDS crisis. Half of the population live on less than £1.60 per day, with Kenyan children being especially vulnerable to forced labour, abuse, and exploitation. 25% of girls marry before they are adults. Its capital city, Nairobi, is home to Africa's largest slum region, with a staggering 2.5 million living there. 

We work in two of the most difficult regions. One is an impoverished rural area called Karundas, about a 3 hour drive north of Nairobi. Children are especially vulnerable. Many have to work to be fed, which is usually in the local  quarries. 1 in 4 is HIV positive and just about all of those we serve have lost at least one parent. 

Here, we have a school serving 570 or so of the region's most vulnerable, along with a Community Hope Centre that reaches out to the most vulnerable in the community, while advocating for reform with local authorities and partners. 

Our other Community Hope Centre is located in the middle of Nairobi's three slums, bringing hope, love, trauma care, family support and so much more to over 100 families living in abject conditions. These are mainly led by single mums, who in turn have been victims of violence and abuse.
