Phanero School is a community development initiative that was initiated by a University Professor with the main purpose of bringing together orphans and vulnerable children and integrates them other children so that they can be provided with quality education and life skills. The school currently has 100 children from the age of 2years to 10 years. The centre also runs a counselling unit whose main objective is to empower families and individuals battling with marriage challenges, poverty, juvenile delinquency, HIV/AIDS and other problems that leverage with the problem of drugs and alcohol addiction with a holistic treatment and care for the family. The school provides education, meals and engages the children in extra-curricular activities like playing games, singing and dancing.
CIVS Kenya is a community development agency operating especially in the marginalized and poverty-stricken rural areas of Kenya. We pursue an integrated socio-economic and cultural development approach in the fight against poverty and social exclusion of Kenyan communities under the maxim “development by people”. We believe that people should retain the responsibility for their own development while CIVS supports, guides and mentors their efforts with innovative and customized high quality services. CIVS achieves this aims through its two program areas: International Voluntary Service (IVS) and Community Development.
