New Life Nyambene is committed to creating a better future for some of the most disadvantaged and stigmatised children in Africa. Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abandoned street children in Kenya and to give them the educational opportunities that are their best chance of escaping destitution.
Our project in the Nyambene Hills region of Kenya offers former street children long-term care, a sense of belonging, and the education and vocational skills they need to escape poverty and find employment. The children have been traumatised by starvation, neglect and abuse; and over time our caring staff help to nurture them back into emotional and physical health, acting as parents for them, offering love and guidance, and working with their teachers to ensure they get good food, sanitation, clothes and healthcare. We also sponsor the children to attend local schools, vocational training opportunities, colleges and universities.
We believe street children deserve not just the basic learning to survive, but the further education they need to thrive - as confident, work-ready, self-sufficient adults. We therefore sponsor the children not just through school but also on to vocational training courses, colleges and universities.
