Sponsor the urban Nairobi community – UMOJA
UMOJA is a slum in Nairobi, Kenya. Many children are full or partial orphans, living with either a single parent or a guardian like a grandmother. Most children in our Umoja program live in one or two room apartments with their family. In some cases a one room apartment is home to more than 10 extended family members and children. The children have space to play but the community is littered with trash heaps and often standing water. The major challenge facing parents in this community is unemployment and lack of opportunity. The parents and guardians of the children in our program struggle to provide one meal each day and school fees for the children, and medical care is mostly unattainable.
Your monthly sponsorship of $35 or more per month will help provide food assistance, school fees, books, a school uniform, access to medical care and mentorship programs for the parents and guardians.
