PROGRAMS SERVING CHILDREN IN KENYA

There are many wonderful programs supporting needy children in Kenya. Here are links to ones that we have visited. Go to their websites to find out what they are doing for children.

The Nambale Magnet School, founded by Rev. Evalyn Wakhusama, opened in January 2009 in Western Kenya. It is now providing a superior education for over 260 children.

The St. John Bosco Rehabilitation Centre in Kitale, Kenya rescues children from the streets, rehabilitates them from street life, and reintegrates them with their families.

The St. John Bosco Educational Trust promotes the education of disadvantaged children and youth through sponsorship to primary schools, high schools, vocational training schools, colleges and universities.

Ripples International runs a number of programs in and around Meru, including HIV/AIDS counseling and testing, a community clinic, centres for abandoned babies and defiled girls and a primary school.

Teamwork City of Hope in a remote, rural part of northwestern Tanzania provides a home, food, healthcare and education (academic and vocational) for 100 orphans and vulnerable children. The school also serves an additional 400 students, and their clinic is open to the surrounding community.

Nyumbani operates several programs. HIV+ children are given nutritional, medical, psychological, academic and spiritual care and live at the Children's Home in Karen. Lea Toto provides at home support for HIV+ children in the Kangemi slum of Nairobi. The Village in Kitui provides a family-like setting for orphaned children under the stewardship of "grandparents".

Shepherds of Life helps able members of the community care for the vulnerable members within the same community. Their programs include child sponsorship, HIV/ Aids support, vocational training, social support, and internship and volunteership.
