Located in the slums adjacent to the Nairobi City limits, Kibera Hope Center is unique in many ways. At this time it has no community buildings of its own but uses the facilities owned and operated by friendly churches and other Christian groups. The activities are the same as in all the other Hope Centers. Kibera is the third largest slum in the world and the largest in Africa.
The people who live here face many challenges such as poverty, crime and homelessness. Kenya Hope provides a daily feeding program which is a lifeline for many of the children. Our well attended Saturday Bible club teaches the children about Jesus and they also enjoy playing games together.
Our sponsorship program has helped put children in school and provided them with a balanced lunch each day. Medical care is provided through a small clinic run by a Christian doctor who treats the children for a small fee.
The work in Kibera is hard and very demanding because of its unique location, and the unusual problems faced by the people in slum areas.
