Kenya – Kibera Good News Club Program

The Problem

More than half a million people live in Nairobi’s Kibera slum. Row after row of frail, dirt-floored shacks line the rank, narrow passageways of Kibera. There are no services here, no running water, no electricity, no garbage collection and no sewage system. Garbage, dirt and human waste fill the shallow trenches running alongside homes and shops. Kibera’s residents face incredible challenges, from widespread unemployment and low wages, to rampant disease such as malaria, cholera and typhoid.

The Program

In order to respond to the urgent needs of Kibera’s vulnerable children, International Needs is adding a Good News Club in a strategic area where more children can be reached. Good News Clubs offer children from ages 5 to 18 a safe and enriching environment where they can receive nutritious food, healthcare, education, life training, and coping skills. The children are also taught the Word of God and encouraged to reach their full potential.
 

The total cost of the project is $2,200 a month.

 

Your Support Makes a Big Difference!

  • When you support our Good News Clubs, you help us identify vulnerable children, particularly those living on the streets and provide a venue where we can monitor and assess their needs.
  • Children who are suffering from malnutrition or abuse are identified and the appropriate course of action is taken.
  • Club leaders work closely with youth on issues affecting them, including HIV/AIDS and substance abuse. They provide counselling and assistance, whether medical, social, or otherwise.
  • Good News Clubs are held every Saturday, with the ultimate goal of sharing the love of Christ with children, in word and practical help.
