owner profile imageThis was my third year in Kibera and in many ways the most rewarding...
September 15, 2019

Like in June 2017 and 2018, I flew to Kenya for the third time in mid June of this year to volunteer at the Red Rose School and at Uweza Foundation.  See more

THE STORY:

In June 2017, I volunteered at a school in the slum of Kibera in Kenya. With more than 700,000 residents, Kibera is one of the most densely populated urban settlements in the world and east Africa’s largest slum. Most of the people of Kibera are earning less than one dollar a day and have to overcome many of the world’s most challenging issues — poverty, poor health care and hygiene, no electricity, water shortage, HIV/AIDS, ethnic conflict, and lack of women’s rights.

When I came back, I decided to open this fundraising page to support the two organizations  which welcomed me during this trip. The Red Rose Primary School which welcome 450 kids from Kibera and Uweza Foundation. They both believe that giving children a good education, but also teaching them how to build life skills and developing talents is the only reliable and sustainable route out of poverty for kids living in the Kibera slum. At Uweza community center, everyone in need can find some help and support from sponsorship to mentorship, soccer academy, dance or art program. It is also a safe space for adolescent girls or young mothers who encounter many challenges in the slum. 

In 2018, I launched Kids Club at my school, The Lycée Français de Los Angeles and also Project Kenya, a service and learning trip for High School students. Eight teenagers from New York and Los Angeles volunteered with me to spend two weeks in Kibera. In preparation for the trip, we raised $23,000 to be able to support Uweza's and Red Rose's programs and also to sponsor the education of more than 20 kids.

In 2019, I convinced 5 high schoolers to come back with me and we launched several new programs including a business pitch competition, an Art Festival and a soccer clinic. 

The one thing I will remember most from my experience in Kibera is that despite living in terrible conditions, all of the kids I talked to displayed great dignity, joy and a true sense of community. I would like to give them a chance to shine. I need your Help to help them.
