St. Vincent’s Children of Kibera makes an effort to help the most vulnerable children in this sprawling Nairobi slum. There they provide a nursery school with nutritious meals so the children do not have to worry about hunger. Not to mention, they also work to develop the children basic skills that’s needed to start primary school.
St. Vincent’s Children of Kibera operates a Rescue Center. This center takes in orphaned or abandoned children that may have suffered traumatic experiences. At the center, these children are given support through counseling and St. Vincent’s loving environment. On one hand, St. Vincent’s Women’s Community Support Program partnered with local women to create opportunities for single mothers. In fact, this program has helped women can start their own business and provide for their children. In return, St. Vincent’s holistic care offered to women and children makes their services vital. Successfully, their work has allowed for families to rise out of the poverty and redefine Kibera’s development.
Nevertheless, TFI has made a contribution to St. Vincent by selecting St. Vincent as one of the agencies for fellowship placement. Overall, former fellows have developed youth activities, created high-level promotional materials, and improved workflows.
