Empowering Children in Africa's Largest Slum

A Christian charity is empowering and educating children in Africa's largest slum in Kibera on the outskirts of Nairobi in Kenya.

Most of the residents live in extreme poverty. There are few schools, little clean water, and very little electricity, medical care or toilet facilities. With no government services, schools, clinics, water and sanitation is largely provided by charities and churches.

For children living in Kibera, the difficulty in getting an education is one of the main barriers to them meeting their potential. 

That is why CRY is supporting the Fountains of Hope primary school which provides education for more than 200 children.
