CHILDREN PROJECTS -AFRICA’S FUTURE IS ITS CHILDREN
African Children Haven focuses on CHILDREN PROJECTS that are community-based and are run by local people.
As a general rule, we support grassroots initiatives that are unlikely to receive support frsom large international donors.
Happy Home Orphanage
Happy Home was established in an abandoned maternity hospital with a leaky roof and little outside help, but with a determination by the community to care for local children orphaned by AIDS.
Working from the back rooms of a local church, and with scant resources, the teachers at the Judah Education Center provide quality education to 54 children from one of the poorest districts in Nairobi, Kenya.
Despite their poverty, the students, including two special needs children, work hard and come to class prepared for the day’s work.
Their dedicated teachers, who hail from similar backgrounds, earn less than $50 per month.
African Children Haven supports the Center by paying teacher salaries and by providing books and supplies, as well as food for the school’s all-important feeding program.
In the future we hope to do even more CHILDREN PROJECTS .
Mission With A Vision
Our partners at Mission With A Vision in rural Kenya do a great job protecting girls who have run away from home to escape genital cutting and childhood marriage.
Over the past 20 years, the Mission has helped more than 1,000 Kenyan teens and pre-teens.
Overseers Education Center
Since 2005, Overseers has provided primary education to the children of Kangemi, one of East Africa’s most notorious slums.
Overseer’s hard-working teachers and staff overcome adversity with an unparalleled commitment to their 215 students.
African Children Haven provides students and staff with breakfast and lunch. For many, it’s the best meal of the day.
Starkid School and Rescue Center
They’re not fancy, but the new high school classrooms built by our partners at the Star kid School and Rescue Center in Nairobi, Kenya paved the way for some two dozen kids to continue their education.
The classrooms are used by secondary students from the nearby Githogoro slum.
Starkid provides quality education for more than 230 neighborhood children and full-time shelter for nearly 100 orphans and abused youngsters.
The school charges tuition for those who are able to pay, but many of its students attend free of charge.
The school’s motto: The Sky’s the Limit.
