Soweto Academy is located in Kiberia, a densely populated slum located in the outskirts of Nairobi. The Soweto team lead by pastor Chris Okumu and in collaboration with Nextgen church, NJ has been serving nearly 500 students and families who have limited resources.
Because of Covid-19
Soweto Academy has been closed since April under Kenya’s Covid-19 directive, but the effects of the school’s closure is having deep impact on the surrounding communities. Many students and families struggle for critical necessities including food, clean water, and shelter. Parents are unable to work and provide daily subsistence for their families. The Soweto team has been distributing fresh water to neighboring residents of Kibera.
Because of Flooding
Recent flooding due to heavy rains have destroyed numerous makeshift homes. Many families have been displaced, and the Soweto team has been trying to help these family rebuild their homes.
