Summary

This Project will build a learning center for 500 street connected girls at the heart of Korogocho slums in Nairobi, Kenya. The center will offer basic education, meals, psychological care, provision of good hygiene, medication, life skills as well as being a major drop in center for street connected girls and mothers who have been affected by drugs and substance abuse. Community reintegration will be a key pillar for the center as we ensure provision of life skills for self reliance upon exit.

Challenge

currently there are more than 1000 street connected girls and women in the slums of Korogocho, (according to children Department at the grassroots level), who are living in the streets, with no shelter, food, accommodation, proper care, medication and access to education despite many being interested to acquire basic education that remains a stamping block towards creating a self reliant society that will be able to solve problems associated with street connected girls and women in Korogocho.

Solution

Since the founder of the organization was once a street child, he has the hands off experience on the challenges that lead most of the young girls and women to the street and we strongly believe that by providing Education including vocational training, meals, access to medication, Psychological care, good Hygiene and sanitation all of which are as a result of the poverty level in many households we will be able to win their trust and confidence and make it easy to reintegrate them back.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate more than 500 street connected girls and women to acquire basic education and vocational training skills that will help them remain self reliant which in-turn will help reduce the number of the street connected girls and women, at the same time we will be able to reduce poverty level within the targeted households, since the project will be ongoing we envision a society that no child or women will go to the street for lack of basic need since they will be well empowered.
