Established in 2013, St. Michaels Day Care and Rescue Centre is an institution for the preschool aged children and young girls who have been rescued from streets of Ukunda. Many of the parents find themselves away from their homes the entire day in the quest for food, water and work and are not able to afford to pay house helps to take care of their children while they are at their work places. The centre takes care of children whose parents have low-income jobs or are unemployed mostly of whom have semi-permanent jobs. The centre also supports young girls who have been left homeless and abandoned by their families. While they are away searching for semi-permanent jobs, the project provides a safe place for their small children by providing meals and basic education. Since the target group is quite poor and due to the scarcity of foodstuffs, many of the children at the center find their only meal of the day there.
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.
