Many of us may be familiar with the Kibera slum in Nairobi but fewer will know of Kawangware – a smaller slum area of Nairobi, but one with many of the same problems.
There is only one public primary school within the region with many children unable to attend school and thereby left to roam the streets. Unemployment, HIV/AIDS and crime are major challenges within the community while most live on less than $1 a day. The Imani child development school sponsors numerous orphans from the area and offers low cost education the age of 3 to 14 years. ORB supports this project by funding the school buildings and raising funds for future development of the project.
If you want to visit the school, spend time with the children or indeed help us raise funds, please do get in touch.
