MORNING STAR DAY CARE CENTRES, Nakuru Kenya

Morning Star 2010 on Vimeo.

For the last 16 years or so, members, family,  friends and others have  assisted the Life Changers Church in the Nakuru area of Kenya  with  their programme to help in the development and education of  some of  the poorest children in the Nakuru area of Kenya. Many are from  displaced families, orphaned or have a single parent. HIV Aids is  very  prevalent in the area

There are currently some70 children between 2 and 6 years old in the 2 schools. In addition to a good, if basic, education, they also receive a substantial main midday meal plus a “going home” snack. While the  children are at the day centre, their parents can use the time to  supplement their meagre income. Whenever possible, parents who can  afford it are encouraged  to contribute to the cost of the care- whether  financially or with their time, wood  for the fire,  cleaning, decorating etc

These centres have been extremely important in helping these children through the difficulties of recent politico/tribal conflicts which have devastated the area in the last 2 years.

 As stability returns to the region, the programme will move on towards enabling  the parents and others connected to the centres towards self sufficiency with the development of credit schemes etc

 

 

Every penny collected goes towards helping the children.

 Once per year we visit the children at no cost whatever to the resources  which have been collected to review with the teachers and church  leadership, progress made and look at how we may be able to help with  the ongoing work and new projects
