The Edmund Rice Karibu Group conducts advocacy and full day and half day camps for children living in the Kibera slum. The Group also conducts outreach to informal schools in Kibera providing training to staff and students in child rights and safeguarding and environmental initiatives. ERKG volunteer leaders receive regular training and participate in cross-cultural programs that enhance capacity, partnerships and networking.
Children participating in camps come mainly from 8 informal primary schools in Kibera. The programs are conducted by young adults also mainly from Kibera. Around 3 full day and 3 half day programs are run per quarter. In all, around 1,000 children participate across the year with some attending multiple programs.
We believe all women and girls should have equal access to education. Sadly, right now, they don’t. Put your Best Foot Forward, become a BFF by acting now and purchasing your supporter pack for only $10.
