Molo Street Children Project

 

The Molo Street Children Project is a Christian, community-based organization that works with street children and poor families in the Molo area of Kenya.
Their aim is to rehabilitate former street children into productive members of the community and to support families to look after children at home, to prevent them from going on the street.

To do this, they provide pre-school education and access into local primary school, uniforms, school lunches and school fees for formal schooling with follow up support.

They work with families to help them support children in their own homes, not in a children's home giving family planning and guidance whenever appropriate. They work with the men in the household to encourage women's rights and empower women to be able to say 'NO' when they have got enough children. They also offer basic healthcare, spiritual nourishment and counselling.

Paid casual work is provided for some of the families so that they are able to earn money in order to support their families, and particularly make the ladies less dependent on the men around them who expect favours in return for their benevolence.
