In short, we aim to reach out to those in need with the support which is most helpful to them in the long run. We do this by focusing on the following projects.
Little Angel's Pre-School
Little Angels is a small pre-school situated in Kibera slum, one of the biggest slums in Africa. With a high population of around 800,000, and low standards of health care and education, many children cannot go to school. Little Angels provides an opportunity for some of these children to get a basic education so that they can then go on to Primary School and beyond. We run the school, together with 2 teachers and a cook who are doing an excellent job in reaching out to these children, and their families, with the love and compassion of Christ. The parents of the children pay a small fee of around £2 a month so that they can be involved with their child's education and can learn to be a bit more financially responsible. However, for the most part, the school is highly subsidised and money we receive helps pay the staff's salary and to provide breakfast and lunch for the children every school day.
Love Your Neighbour sponsorship program
Once children have finished their Pre-School education, we don't want to leave things there and that's why we encourage people to sponsor a child through us. For just £10 a month a child in Kibera Slum can go to Primary School and have the books, clothes and any other expenses they may have met. You'll be able to write letters
Sozo Bakery & business Course
Unemployment is high in Kenya, especially among women and young adults. The Sozo Baking & Business course runs for 3 months at a time working with small groups of women to teach them the basics of business and a skill which they can do as a business themselves (baking). This course aims to give women the confidence to make a living for themselves and their families by starting a business with a low start-up cost. This teaches women that they don't have to rely on aid or handouts but actually have the capacity to say no to a lifetime of poverty.
