The Lutheran church in Nairobi is running a great help program supporting orphan children in the Kibera slum area. Maybe Kibera is the biggest slum area in Africa with some 1.1 million people living there. The church’s help program is called “Heart to Heart” and offers a good service to hundreds of children. The service includes the possibility of going to school, two warm meals a day, school uniform, shoes, school bag and schoolbooks. Medicines are also included for those who need.

 

The Lutheran church in Kenya has called upon NSP Aid to participate in this project. The NSP Aid board decided in 2013 to support the project. From a small-scale start-up with 14 children, NSP Aid is now supporting 155 children. In January 2013 general manager Gunnar Hamnøy in NSP Aid visited the project together with member of the board, Leif Kjetil Gjendemsjø, his daughter Susanne, and general manager in NSP Kenya ltd Zaccheaus Maganga.

 

We are now (2015) planning to support "Heart to Heart" in establishing a children village with 15-20 houses with 8-10 children and a "mother" in each house. The village will also include a school and probably a kindergarten.
