Every child has a right

After the school burned down short before Christmas 2018 the situation changed partly. The school was/is rebuilt of stone on an own ground (see below).
KIBERA SLUM BACKGROUND
Kibera is the biggest slum in sub-Saharan African, and one amongst the world. The slum environment is degrading their families.
KIBERA ORPHANS AND VULNERABLE CHILDREN
Kibera is a home to most orphans and abandoned children owing to its proximity to the capital city (Nairobi). The unfortunate children are as a result of deaths caused by HIV/AIDS, poverty level leading to and dehumanizing, characterized by abject poverty, corruption, periodic violence and contagious diseases due to environmental pollution! Majority of residents here are reduced to beggars due to lack of employment and opportunities to earn a living for individual wellbeing or provision of abandonment and very poor parental upbringing and crimes associated with the slum! The presence of these children is evident, and no actor is willing to support and address the challenges of their education, health and shelter. The program for our children’s Centre (MOBJAP-Garden of Hope Children Center) is designed to address these challenges, advocate for their rights and open the potentials of these children
As MOBJAP-Garden of Hope Children’s Centre, our vision is to be the preferred educational provider in this slum for it to realize its full potential of our children and to ensure that they will be able to reintegrate with their communities as a Healthy, Happy, Responsible and Independent adults.
As MOBJAP-Garden of Hope, our mission is basically to cooperate and collaborate with local authorities and members of the slum community to offer a chance of LIFE and a NEW START to orphans and vulnerable children in giving them first class EDUCATION, access to necessary Healthy services, and above all the opportunity to grow up healthy and happy in a safe, caring, warm and familiar environment!
MOBJAP-Garden of Hope Children Centre started in the year 2011, with only 9 kids (6 orphans and 3 vulnerable kids) all confined in a single rented hall, temporarily subdivided using polythene bags and sacks!. Currently as of Year 2019, the Centre has 388 children of whom to be specific (96 are pure orphans, 188 are partial orphans from single mothers whose fathers died of HIV/AIDS while 104 are vulnerable kids whose parents survives in less than a dollar a day) We have 16 Volunteer teachers and 6 subordinate staff members. The Centre offer basic competent education from Grade 1 to Grade Six respectively.
SCHOOL BURNED COMPLETELY
In December 16th 2018, fire broke out from the school’s neighbor who left unattended stove and unfortunately burned the entire of our school leaving nothing. It was unbelievable as tears rolled down our chicks until two of our pupils collapsed at the scene of the fire and they were admitted for three days! We temporarily rented 16 rooms to secure kids as we plan for the way forward. The plan included and not limited to;
KENYA SHILLINGS 6, 200,000 LOAN ACQUISITION
= about 53.000 Euros
Due to the fire tragedy, the school Director Mr.Benard Asanay took an initiative to apply for the BANK LOAN to enable rebuilding of the school. The loan was granted and rebuilding started. The construction was not complete. Loan repayment is made monthly! Kindly support us repay the loan and continue rebuilding!
