Kenya 2009- Nairobi

 

Again in Nairobi I was  in Mathare slum, Kayole- Soweto (Imani’s Children Center) and other places that I prefer not to explain here because I don’t have so much time.

Finally I took the decision to volunteer in Hamomi Children’s Centre (http://hamomi.org/) they do a very good job in education with children in Kangemi slum and here your have a  video of music class.

I was helping Esther W. in Kibera (you can watch the small documentary)

And also in AMURT http://www.africa.amurt.net/category/kenya/education-kenya/  also in Kangemi slum.

All the three NGOs are working in improving the acces and de quality of education in diferents slums but not only that, a social inclusion, medical assistance…

Kenya 2009 – Kisumu

We were in Kisumu, the third largest city in Kenya after Nairobi and Mombasa. It’s in the greater Lake Victoria basin. And we were visiting Covenant Home. I had a very good impression of them but It’s far from Nairobi so I think I can´t volonteer there.
