ABOUT THE HOME
We rescue children
Most children are from Government Rescue Centers, through the Kenyan Children’s Court and social services. Children are placed here by Government officials after they have lost their families through illness, death, including from HIV/AIDS or abandonment and have no one else to care for them. A good number have been taken off the streets by the police. Some run away from home abuse and desperation, while some are simply lost. We take care of the children once efforts to find their parents or relatives become futile.
We live as a family
Kibera Pride is currently a home to over 30 orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) aged between 2 to 18 years of age. With the Education and sponsorship program, Kibera pride boasts of over 50 children actively on sponsorship both in primary and secondary schools while others waiting to join tertiary institutions, colleges and universities.
We educate the children
Children attaining school age are linked to schools, with majority attending a local public primary school, from grade 1 to 8. The older ones are transitioned to attend various boarding secondary schools from grade 9 to 12. Kibera Pride also facilitates vocational training for the children who are not academically inclined. Day care classes are held at Kibera Pride home for the young children. As the children grow and go out to pursue their dreams, they always have a place to call home.
Kibera Pride Initiative was founded with an aim to promote access to education and to provide basic needs to vulnerable children in the Kibera Slum Area. The organization was registered on February 26th, 2014 under the NGO coordination board of Kenya.
It’s focus is on the two United Nations, Sustainable Development Goals. SDG 1 (No poverty) & SDG 4 (promote quality education).
