Agape Hope for Kibera

Momenteel werkt Agape Hope for Kibera aan verschillende projecten. Het doel is om de minder bedeelde kinderen in Kibera te ondersteunen door bijvoorbeeld het aanbieden van maaltijden op school, medische zorg en het aanschaffen van schoolspullen. Daarnaast probeert het naast kinderen ook andere leden uit de gemeenschap te ondersteunen.

De organisatie werkt nauw samen met
Kenya Lend a Hand. Voor meer informatie zie hun website:

Hieronder een korte toelichting op de doelstelingen in het Engels.

  • Education (pre-school, school preparation and school transition); providing children with basic education and literacy and numeracy skills, prepare them to be integrated into mainstream schools. Although primary education is free in Kenyan schools, the parents cater for other requirements in school and the compulsory school uniform often remains well beyond the financial means of many of the families we work with and, as a result, many children fail to receive a basic education.

  • Feeding Programme to provide food to approximately 60 children as a means of school drop out prevention.

  • Healthcare to ensure children have regular medical check ups and are treated for any existing healthcare problems.

  • Structured play and creativity to provide children with the opportunity to rediscover their childhood through play.

  • Psycho-social Support for the children and their guardian, persons with disability, youths, women and men in the community

  • Micro Finance Programme to empower families to start income generating activities in order to promote independence and financial self sufficiency hence quality lives.
