Toto Angel Center was founded in 2013. It is currently supporting 30 children between 3 – 12 years from a variety of backgrounds. The situation in Kayole Estate where the center is located is characterized by a high poverty rate, low education and marginalization of the community. Many vulnerable children are neglected and abandoned by their caregivers. Toto angel Center provides a safe place where children can spend the day, get a warm meal, basic education and play. 22 children are currently enrolled in the centers pre-school group and another 8 are supported in local primary schools with books, tuition and lunch. 11 of the children are without a caretaker and live at the center. In order to change the situation in the community the center has also started regular dialog & problem solving sessions as well as a soccer club for adults.
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.
