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.     .

My name is Flavian Anyango. I am a sponsored child in Tumaini Watoto center.I like this center for many reasons. The first one is that it is located in a quiet environment fit for learning. The seconds one is it has many books and you are given homework in school and you don’t have the text book you can go and do it at this center. Another thing I like about this center is that on weekend (Saturday) there is porridge that children drink and some bananas that makes the...
My name is Carl-Johan and I’m currently doing volunteer work here at the KCE center. Why I chose to work for this particular organization is that it has a great reputation and that it’s Sweden based, which suits my Swedish heritage well! Coming from such a developed country as Sweden to Nairobi and Kibera really gives you perspective on life as we know it. Even though the children in Kibera live in extreme poverty and possess almost nothing when it comes to materialism,...

Because at KCE you are being paid for school fees you are given school materials and KCE has opened a centre for both sponsored kids/non sponsored kids. At the centre the staff are kind and...

My home is a single roomed with my mother being the bread winner of the family. Its tough but what I believe is, when the tough gets  going the going gets tough, that’s the word to use. I believe after my education I would identify my career for a bright future. Its so weird that my mum leaves very early in the morning and comes home late at night, I rarely have  time to discuss my matters with my mum whenever an urgency arises. I feel lonely most of the time, unlike...

Everyday when I wake up, I always think of the garden in KCE Centre, it was such a wonderful idea after our discussion that we needed to dig, and plant as well. At 4.30pm when the bell rings, I always pack my bag to rush to the centre, where my first stop is always the backyard where the garden is. It is my duty to make sure that the plants are watered daily and weeds removed from time to time. We have a co operative team where some of the boys do take care of the...
