Just as troubling, over 220 million children are trying to survive in at-risk communities world wide, and 700,000 are in the Kibera area in Nairobi, Kenya. The size of New York’s Central Park, one million people live in a neighborhood where on average there is only one single shared toilet for every 50 families. Children often go through their days without food, running water, organized health care, and in most cases basic education.
In 2017 we will expand our partnered program with the World Food Program within the Kenyan Kakuma Refguee Camp school feeding program, currently reaching 70,000 children. Our aim is to reach 1 million refugees by 2020, and an additional 2 million at-risk people living in communities similar to Kibera.
