Kenya, The Tent of Refuge project

8 kilometres north east of Nairobi city centre is Dandora estate - the site of Nairobi’s main rubbish dump.  On the dumpsite, covering 30 acres, 1,000 men, women & children eke out a living by scavenging for recyclables at great risk to their health. 

Working in partnership with a local church, the Tent of Refuge provides a good meal, mentoring, Christian teaching and games to 80 children each week keeping them off the dumpsite; it helps parents to pay for their children to attend Primary School by contributing to the cost of uniforms, tuition and lunches.

Boniface the Project Manager is the Children’s Pastor of the All Nations Gospel Cathedral in Dandora. Volunteers cook the food and teach and play with the children each Saturday.

A group for teenage girls (Plants) started in Sept 2017 providing regular sanitary supplies so the girls do not miss a week’s schooling every month. This is a monthly meeting with Christian teaching and mentoring. It is planned to start a similar group for teenage boys (Pillars) built around a football team. These new projects particularly need sponsors.
