Welcome to our blog

This blog is our window to the rest of the world. Through this platform our sponsored children, the teachers, our mentors, volunteer workers and other KCE staff can share their personal experiences of our projects, our activities, the Education Centre and much much more.

The blog is our way of sharing and communicating all the fun and developing things happening here at KCE in this otherwise quite tough world.  We also want to provide these smart and creative children a "voice of their own", so that they can tell you their own stories and share their thoughts with people outside of the Kibera area. This is also a great opportunity for you to peek into this exciting and adventurous lifestyle, and also become a part of these youngsters life through the KCE blog.

“We are stronger when we listen, and smarter when we share.” ― Rania Al-Abdullah  

So please feel free to enable the function of two-way communication and comment on the blog updates.     .

After a three month volunteer period in Nairobi at KCE I’m now back in Sweden to continue the work as a board member. Before I left for Kibera in January 2014 I had no idea what to expect  from KCE and Kibera, so a bit confused I got on the plane from Copenhagen towards my new home and workplace. During my time at KCE in Kibera I fell in love with the culture, the centre and all wonderful and blithesome people I met in my daily interactions. Before I left I knew THAT I...
