MWANGA COMMUNITY RESCUE CENTRE

managed by E. MWINAMO (Communication)

About us

Project Mwanga is a need driven, three phase project based on the streets of Nakuru Kenya. It is run by Hakuna Pesa NGO a non profit charity registered in Spain in 2006. It is also registered with the district council of Nakuru.
Mwanga is Swahili for 'light'. For many kids on the street there is no light, no hope in their lives. Our aim is to give them hope and give them a future.In January 2012 we started working with a group of 13 boys who were all living on the streets, some were abandoned, some orphaned, some running away from domestic abuse or poverty. We met when filming a documentary about the lives of the street kids in Kenya. We decided that we could do more to help these children. Having worked within the child welfare system of Kenya for over seven years with various children's homes and orphanages, we felt it was time to establish our own project and center for street boys.

Phase 1. Jan 2012 - Feb 2012: We worked with the boys on the streets, offering them food, counseling and support. We met three days a week in order to initiate the rehabilitation process. During this period we assessed their needs, listened to their wishes and researched into their past lives and education history. Throughout this phase we also had a strict no drug or drink policy and also engaged the boys in reading, writing, sports and team building activities.Phase 1.
