KidsCare Kenya has a unique ‘HomeCare Program’ strategy set up to support and council 369 households who live in remote parts of the country where poverty and lack of education is rampant. Through the HomeCare Program KidsCare and its social workers have been able to help over 2000 children.
Community Based HomeCare and Beekeeping (CBHB)
The CBHB program is an oasis in the desert, providing small-scale farmers with an opportunity to improve the production for food sustenance and creating an income generating source as well as play a vital role in helping the environment.
Special School Units
Six Special School Units (SSU)are being constructed in Lunga Lunga Sub-County for children with special abilities. Construction of the first two units at Lunga Lunga and Masimbani primary schools are complete. Already classes and day care are in progress.
The Occupational Therapy (OT) caters for children with physical disabilities. There are 59 children in the occupational therapy program. Therapy is offered three times a week at KidsCare’s Facility Center. The OT also conducts home based therapy twice a month.
Yes We Can
The ‘Yes We Can’ project was launched in December 2017 with the main focus being on children with mental disabilities. Currently, there are 50 children actively participating in the Yes We Can Project.
KidsCare Kenya runs a ‘Scholarship project.’ KidsCare Kenya and its generous donors help 33 young and bright minds by paying 99% of the school fees for their high school and tertiary education.
We did it again! 21st March was a very important day for the children with special abilities in the Sub-county of Lunga Lunga. Kidscare, the County Government and other stakeholders came together to take/carry a child with special ability to school. Parents and care givers were urged to ensure the children are taken to school as they also have the right to access quality education for a bright future just like other children. It is also the obligation of the authorities to make sure parents and care givers are taking their responsibilities towards these children with proper seriousness to ensure that they are not isolated or denied their chances for a bright future. Complete special school units are already functioning in two locations: Lunga Lunga and kikoneni at Lunga Lunga and Masimbani primary schools respectively. The other 4 locations, i.e Vanga, Mwereni, Dzombo and Pongwe/Kidimu will soon have complete units as there are determined children attending classes already. Thank you all for making this day a success.
KidsCare Kenya has adopted a ‘Regional Approach‘ in its strategies to be more connected with the community. All operations are organized through the main facility center in Mshiu, where the head office is located. At the facility center, KidsCare provides information, counseling, therapy sessions, and trainings. Each week the social workers meet at the start of the week to discuss the planning for the week. From there they move to their individual outreach centers which have been generously donated by the local Chiefs. KidsCare Kenya has a total of 6 outreach centers, each in a different location, where the social workers are able to conduct their work within the communities.
